Rep. Donald Manzullo (IL) told Treasury Secretary TImothy Geithner that his financial plan was "radical," forcing Geithner to defend himself. The Geithner plan would massively expand federal government power and increase regulation on financial markets, causing much concern to free market conservatives.
"You're talking about seizing private businesses and you don't consider that radical?" said Manzullo, according to The Washington Post's Economy Watch.
Manzullo continued to press Geithner for details on his plan but failed to get the information, which has yet to be publicly released.
