Financial Services Committee

From Congressman Travis W. Childers' web page, "As a realtor in North Mississippi for over thirty years, I was extremely encouraged when I became an active Member of the House Financial Services Committee. The committee has primary jurisdiction over the nation's financial sectors that include banking, insurance, real estate, public-housing, and securities. On a routine basis, the committee hears testimony from various international finance experts that include the Chairman of the Federal Reserve and the Secretary of the Treasury. With the increasing strains on the American economy, I certainly look forward to offering my experiences as a small business man in order to find effective solutions to the financial obstacles every day American's face on a daily basis.

No one expects Travis Childers to solve the very complicated and vast problems facing the U.S. economy right now. We wouldn't expect Greg Davis to be any more capable. And certainly, Travis Childers is in no way to blame. He hasn't been there long enough to do anything good or bad. But this is his committee and they are responsible for what he says above. Childers should inform Mississippi of his thoughts, as a member of this semi-important committee, of this fairly important economic time.

Travis is out of his element on this unless you take in account if he had any realtor clients who maybe lied about their income to get a mortgage for a piece of property. Whose interest does he have in Washington to bailout bad mortgages?

Anybody want to put down money that at the end of the day, Travis Childers will vote just like Nancy Pelosi and Barney Frank want him to on this? It's already a tradition.

People need to ignore what Travis says and watch what he actually does. You won't have to be a rocket scientist to pretty quickly see that his talk is just talk and does not match his actions in DC. He's just another Democrat. If his $2,000 check to John Kerry didn't convince people, maybe his actual voting record (don't read his campaign literature that we taxpayers pay for, but look it up yourself) will.
