On April 15, tax day, most Americans feel a little violated as the government peeps into their most private affairs to see what’s taxable. The Obama administration views such transparency as a one-way street.
Government secrecy has become the norm under this administration, particularly when it comes to the financial bailout. Exhibit A is a gag order preventing banks from divulging how they performed on the Treasury Department’s financial “stress tests.” These tests were instituted Feb. 25 to gauge the liquidity of the country’s 19 biggest banks and determine whether they could survive another dramatic economic downturn. Federal officials told the bankers to keep mum about how stressed out the tests say their institutions are.
Transparency! Enough said!
Obama has lied to the American people and now is afraid that we will find out about all his lies!
