Congress Watch -- The Political Theater

It is nice to know that our Congressmen are on the watch. Here is a press release from Congressman John R. Carter, R-Texas, on his new bill titled the Geithner Penalty Waiver Act. The Act would impose the same penalty rate for persons joiniing the special voluntary disclosure program as imposed on Timothy Geithner, the Secretary of Treasury. The rhetoric is interesting; seems to me more for political theater than being a serious proposal.
