Today is Tim Geithner’s first full day as Treasury Secretary, and he’s already made me happy. Just a hour and a half ago, I posted a blog echoing calls for further restrictions on TARP funds, namely that banks receiving them shouldn’t be able to use them to lobby Congress. And guess what? Roughly an hour ago, the AP went up with a story saying that Geithner had issued new rules stating exactly that. Good on ya, sir. (Via Sunlight)
