High Rollers"And it demonstrates what Americans are beginning to see: Republicans cannot be trusted with your money." -- Howard Dean
Republicans continue to prove Howard Dean right. Left to their own devices, they drive up the deficit and give away much needed revenue via tax cuts to the rich.
Now they're speculating in the unregulated rare coins market [emphasis mine]:
Republicans sure have a funny definition of what's safe and secure. The coins market is highly speculative and risky with not much room for liquidity.
Even if the fund is $18 billion in size, they're playing with $50 million of public funds to favor political benefactors.
I wonder if George W. Bush will use Ohio as a blueprint for his Social Security privatization plan.
