Barney Frank on the Auto Bailouts

Well, it appears that Rep. Barney Frank has foot-in-mouth disease lately. Recently, Frank has been making the rounds on national TV to tout the numerous bailout proposals to save failing American businesses. Frank was recently interviewed on CBS News' 60 Minutes by Lesley Stahl. When asked if he was propping the auto companies up and catering to their every whim, Frank responded:

"No. We're not propping up companies. That's your mistake," he tells Stahl, who had asked him about taxpayer money going to prop up companies that had made bad decisions. "We're propping up individuals. The world doesn't consist of companies. The world is people. The country is people."

When Stahl points out that Frank is then talking about welfare, he responds, "Yeah, I'm for welfare. You're not? Are you for letting people starve?"

Here is a clip from his interview.

Frank is the type of corrupt leadership that our country does not need to prosper.
