Focusing on six words: Helping government do its job better

DorobekInsider: What’s the impact of Wall Street’s woes?

with one comment

So we all have been watching the financial mess. In fact, it was so curious yesterday that all the cable networks literally had split-screens, with one eye focused on Wall Street and another on Capitol Hill as House members voted down the financial rescue bill.

The big question: What does this mean for the government world. We have been trying to get our arms around it on Federal News Radio’s Daily Debrief with Chris Dorobek and Amy Morris. Yesterday, we had Jeremy Grant, an emerging technologies analyst for the Stanford Group Company’s Washington Research Group [hear the interview here .mp3]… Tom Trabucco, Director of External Relations for the TSP, talking about what it means for feds retirement plans [hear the interview here .mp3] … and the remarkable Stanley Collender, who is known as a one of the leading experts in federal fiscal and monetary policies having worked on the staff of the House and Senate Budget Committees [hear the interview here .mp3].

But what do you think?

What does the impact of the financial mess mean for government?

  1. Congress has grossly underestimated and misinterpreted the mood of the public on this issue. The public wants leadership and the votes were a meek and frightened reaction to a vocal minority and polling data. Churchill said “those who are not fit to take unpopular positions are not fit to be ministers in times of crisis.” Forgive them Lord for they know not what they do – but the voters shouldn’t.
