Barney Frank, farewell in 2012

Citizens for Tax Justice are bidding an early farewell to U.S. Representative Barney Frank, co-author of the Dodd-Frank bill, who announced last week that he will not seek re-election in 2012, They publish two fine quotes from him.

“Tax cuts are fun, but I never saw a tax cut put out a fire. I never saw a tax cut make a bridge” Barney Frank, MSNBC, August 1, 2011

“Remember that our debt crisis began when someone decided to get the joint prize, Nobel Prize, for economics and fiction by putting forward the theory that you could finance two wars with five tax cuts. That's what put us in the hole.”
Barney Frank, CNBC, January 29, 2011
