What Role Did McCain Economic Advisor Play in Getting Foreign Banks Included in Government Bail out Plan?
TPM points out that foreign banks like UBS were not originally designated as beneficiaries of the $700 billion to bail out the American finance industry. Over the weekend, UBS lobbied successfully to be included in the early Christmas gifts. TPM wants to know how involved McCain advisor and potential Treasury Secretary Phil "America Is a Bunch of Whiners" Gramm was involved in those discussions. Gramm is a UBS lobbyist and officer. The stench of this is awful.
