Poor Beth. The Administration has back-walled her and her "open-government-through-transparency" beliefs to a back-alley, bureaucratic tasks while it appoints czars and performs (disasterous) economic "miracles' behind closed doors. She should quit immediately and telephone Ralph Nader.

what a crock! Transparency for banks and brokerages. I have faxed and emailed the SBA and White House over the last 6 months while desperately trying to get an ARC loan as part of the recovery and have yet to get any kind of response. So I slowly go under. At least with the GOP you know they are lying to us but the Dems claim transparency but lie anyway. I want a do-over
