**IMPORTANT!** Awaiting the New Government Plan for the Federal Reserve!

Pay attention!!  Big changes are going to be proposed tomorrow in Washington DC that deal with the financial well being of the nation.  Already the plan has opened a very sharp debate an no one is talking but my fear is that it may send out the wrong message that things are so bad they cannot be fixed! 

The plan was announced late Friday night to insiders, and will be officially released Monday morning. There are going to be the biggest proposals of change since the Great Depression. The plan focuses on  a broader role for the Federal Reserve consolidating powers by eliminating overlapping areas of state and Federal regulators to gain oversight into investment banks and brokerages.  The plan also calls for Office of the Comptroller and the Office of Thrift Supervision to come under tighter Federal or centralized control to keep the credit crisis problems from getting worse.  It will create a "Super watchdog agency!  Other streamlining proposes the Securities and Exchange Commission to merge with the Commodities Futures Trading Commission!

Under the 200 page plan which will be released Monday morning is an effort to regain confidence in our economy.  Paulson (Former chairman of Goldman Sachs) want the Federal Reserve to become the center of oversight to control market stability.

I am a firm believer that less government is better government, and that this announcement may send shock-waves throughout the economy.  It is sort of like the situation we have on the boarder - we have all the rules, laws in place no one wants to be man enough to enforce them.  It is alos like the wolves gaurding the sheep!  Some of the institutions that they want to change have been in place since the Civil War.  It may concentrate too much power to too few!
