Live Tweeting: “The Costs of Implementing the Dodd-Frank Act: Budgetary and Economic”



At 2pm EDT, I'll be live-tweeting “The Costs of Implementing the Dodd-Frank Act: Budgetary and Economic” from the House. Follow me @adrigonzo for updates (excuse me if I have to rip on people on the Metro on the way down there), I'll be tagging tweets with #DoddFrank if you prefer to follow the hashtag instead. I'd rather tag with #FrankenDodd but that would cut down on my available remaining characters.

I'm in it for the following testimony by my 2nd and formerly 1st favorite Fedhead, Richmond Fed's Jeffrey Lacker. Not surprisingly, he'll be discussing his very favorite subject of all time: the safety net. Let's hope for his sake his hair is looking excellent this afternoon, I know mine is.

WITNESS LIST

Panel I

* The Honorable Jill E. Sommers, Commissioner, Commodity Futures Trading Commission
* Mr. Douglas W. Elmendorf, Director, Congressional Budget Office

See you kids there!

Jr Deputy Accountant

Some say he’s half man half fish, others say he’s more of a seventy/thirty split. Either way he’s a fishy bastard.

I was asking a hooker a similar question...

It's clear he didn't expect me to show up, he could use a good dye and some conditioning cream.

Lacker's report is too long to read at work. Will have to print and "take Lacker to the crapper".

Still thinking about you Dr. Hoenig (and very thankful for indoor plumbing given our recent cold snap - brrrrrrr!!!!)!!!

"Lacker is giving his testimony. So far his hair is holding up."

You are killing me.

"I'm a CPA, sometimes I understand that you can present things *certain ways*"

Makes you want to see if you can strangle the truth out of them.. Where's a good waterboarder when you really need one?

Not me, I was conspicuous enough in that sea of suits. So glad I'm not an uptight asshole for a living.

Anon,

No Christmas presents for Lacker, he converted so he could marry the love of his life.

Doesn't that warm your cold black heart?

So Lacker is dyed in the wool romantic??? Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww! My little Smug Bastard heart felt just teeeniest, tinyest bit human just then - but just for a bit. I'm over it now.

Did you do it for love? Did you do it for money? Did you do it for spite? Did you think you had to, honey?
