Mr. Schiff Returns to Washington

SIGN THE PETITION TO MAKE SCHIFF HAPPEN!

Does Washington have the American taxpayers’ interests as their top priority? Watch as lobbyists drown out your voice and Peter fights the tide.

Go to http://www.TinyURL.com/RealCrash to order my new book, “The Real Crash: America’s Coming Bankruptcy—How to Save Yourself and Your Country”

6:06 – My Opening Statement

11:16 – “I don’t know whether to go to Mr. Schiff or not, but I guess I will” – Judy Biggert (R)
I explain to Chairwoman Judy Biggert why federal involvement in home lending has created more problems than it has solved.

16:22 – “Despite all the sound and fury, there’s not a lot of details…” – Robert Hurt (R)
My proposals that old regulations be repealed, rather than new ones proposed, in order for the free market to come up with solutions are repeatedly lost on Congressman Robert Hurt.

25:16 – “Mr. Schiff, I just have one question…” – Emanuel Cleaver (D)
Congressman Emanuel Cleaver II unsuccessfully tries to ‘nail’ me. Instead, a spirited discussion ensues in which I remind the congressman of the moral hazard and economic costs of government subsidies.

30:38 – “Maybe that happens in an Ayn Rand novel…” – Dan Sherman (D)
Congressman Dan Sherman asserts that as a practical matter the federal government, in one way or another, insures all homes, and that only characters in an Ayn Rand novel would believe otherwise.
