Treasury Secretary Paulson seems to want to just funnel money into failed Wall Street investment banks without any accountability. The White House is resisting any limits on the compensation paid to the executives at failed Wall Street firms. I hope the Democrats hold their feet to the fire on that provision.

I find myself somewhat in agreement with intercst. It would be a mistake to bail out the banks and Wall Street without wiping out the senior executives and shareholders. There has to be severe punishment for the companies that created this mess, even if some innocent shareholders (including myself) get burned along the way. As for the executives, they should lose everything they have, including their homes.
