Consumerist Interview: White House To Banking Lobbyists, "It's On."

Megaustan Good to have people getting us outta the ditch the previous eight years got us into.

Consumerist, part of Consumer Reports, gets the deal directly here.

We went back to the White House this week, for our second interview
with Obama Administration Senior Economic Advisor Austan Goolsbee. In a
wide-ranging talk with Consumerist Co-Managing Editor Meg Marco,
Goolsbee discussed the Administration's plans to help small businesses
get credit, said that the battle against bank lobbyists is on, and
expressed amazement that people in Washington use the weather as an
excuse to miss meetings. "I'm from Chicago," he said, explaining that
even blizzards don't stop normal activities there.

"We aren't wimps in
Chicago."

Disclaimer: I'm on the board of Consumer Reports, and voted for the getting of Consumerist.

Consumer Reports is a highly respected organization. They have expanded their reach and are actively working to speak for the people big business has in their sights.
Recently they have provided us with the ability to add our names to their no-nonsense, plain English approach to consumer issues.
I urge others to join forces with Consumer Reports to keep the voice vital and strong.
