Garrett on Geithner's Plan

Representative Scott Garrett got a lot of press today for his involvement in the hearing with Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner and Fed Chair Ben Bernanke yesterday. You can read his opening statement here.

Here's my personal favorite comment he made in an interview, as reported by the National Journal:
Rep. Scott Garrett (R-NJ): "We've heard the story before under the prior secretary of Treasury, where he said he had a plan, it is the only plan, and that plan will work. ... I guess he's suggesting that it's something to do with will that has to get it done. No. I think it really has to get down to what's in the weeds of the plan and whether the plans are actually good ideas from day one"
We're talking trillions of dollars, and people have to ask questions.
