...Mr Mnuchin was Mr Trump's campaign finance chairman and has no government experience. He earned a fortune over 17 years at Goldman Sachs investment bank.

A Jewish Goldman Sachs partner worth tons of cash. Now isn't that a fresh start?? So un-establishment....

I wonder how many Hillary speeches he had the pleasure of hearing?

Do you think that afterwards they discussed the federal minimum wage?



No, hell no, that's a topic for peons to bump chests over.
So? Seriously what does that position even matter? As long as there is a federal reserve that does congress job of actually printing our currency and continuing a policy of allowing banks to print money out of nothing then what does it matter who the sec of treasury even is? Unless you want to petition for the US mint to make a commemorative coin of someone or something you like. Thats about all the Congress does when it comes to minting coin. They authorize the sec of treasury to authorize the mints to coin x amount of gold buffaloes,Eagles, American the beautiful coin sets etc. etc. Dont get me wrong I have a safe full of them, but in the over all picture it means little to the currency of the United States. Lets talk about putting Rand Paul in as the Fed, now that would be some serious change. Never happen..but one can dream
Thanks from Sabcat

Jesus, how can you agree with me yet state it as though you don't? It's just reflex on your part.
