Pursuing the Evildoers
The House and Senate agree on a deal to address corporate wrong-doing. Here is a clever compromise:
"The final congressional measure, agreed to earlier on Wednesday, preserved most of the stricter auditing oversight sought by the Democratic Senate but also with the stiffer penalties passed by the Republican House".
And can Treasury Secretary O'Neil deliver a sound-bite? How about this, on Moneyline:
"I'm very glad that the members of Congress have now come to an agreement to send a bill to President... It's the lock on the barn door."
Oh, good, we locked the barn door. Now I have to see a man about a horse.
