Paulson Debt Plan May Benefit Mostly Goldman, Morgan (Update2)
Bloomberg - USA
22 (Bloomberg) -- Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and Morgan Stanley may be among the biggest beneficiaries of the $700 billion US plan to buy assets from ...
  Nahhh! Say it ain't so!

Rosenberg assumed the government will use a reverse auction in which banks submit the lowest prices they are willing to sell certain types of assets for and then the government buys the cheapest ones, with the goal of ``protecting the taxpayers,'' the report said.

If you wan't to protect taxpayers, let the banks eat the market prices. Someone has to eat them, and it should be the ones who cooked them up in the first place. The weak banks are going to fail anyway, and these games just assist in dragging this out longer. A better use of the government funds would be to offer credit in exchange for warrants to the solvent banks, ex. the AIG deal. The government will make money instead of losing it, and the banks will finally be incentivized to achieve true economic performance (or risk losing their companies) in lieu of playing accounting games - which is what got many of them into this mess to begin with. Can we all say "OFF BALANCE SHEET ACCOUNTING"!

According to the Wall Street Journal, the Treasury Relents on Key Points. This isn't enough, though. We need a real, workable soluton that will not break the back of the average American tax payer. Let's conduct a real time experiment on the socio-political influence of this new media medium called the blog. I recieve a little less than 3 and a half million visitors a year through my self-published new media magazine, and if you glance at the demographics through the survey available in the menu, I have a fairly capable readership. I want my readers who are skeptical of the Paulson plan to reach out to the congressmen and senators and voice your opinion.

I got this list off of Mish's site, and I have made 2 additions at the beginning. Please contact these representatives and let your voices be heard in regards to Paulson's plan.
