Sorry about the OT. I thought that this was just too humorous of a public statement not to pass on. I wonder if Congressman Frank has figured things out yet.

Frank Statement on Federal Reserve’s Proposed Rules on HOEPA
Washington, DC-- Rep. Barney Frank, chairman of the House Committee on Financial Services today released the following statement in reaction to the Federal Reserve’s proposed rules on the Home Owner’s Equity Protection Act (HOEPA):
“The staff of the Financial Services Committee and I have had a chance to review the Federal Reserve’s proposed rules regarding abusive subprime loans. We now have confirmation of two facts we have known for some time: one, the Federal Reserve System is not a strong advocate for consumers, and two, there is no Santa Claus. People who are surprised by the one are presumably surprised by the other.”
