Earlier this morning, the House Financial Services Committee unveiled a new website that includes 1) a place to comment on legislation 2) a handy form for anyone who knows of someone up to no good found under the section "You Blow The Whistle" and 3) a blog called The Bottom Line. Here's what they had to say in their inaugural post.
We hope this blog will inform its readers about the ongoing debates surrounding financial services issues. We hope this blog will make people think. And finally, we hope this blog will make people want to read it...We will bring to your attention what we think is important and interesting. We will post what we’re reading and what we’re thinking. We will post short reaction pieces and longer thought pieces. We will blog about ideas and policies that we support and that we don't support. We will try to entertain. Most importantly, we will try to engage our readers.
As a brand new blog, the editors of the site may be initially unsure what people might find entertaining. I think everyone here will agree when we say that this thing has the potential to be wildly successful if an only if the following two simple words/one big suggestion are taken to heart: MAXINE WATERS. Maxine Waters podcasts. Maxine Waters' midday pearls of wisdom. Maxine Waters' Lunch. The Max Cam.
Or just more of this. Please God, more of this:
