    After being sworn into office the newly appointed Treasury Secretary announced his new sets of rules to limit lobbying by the companies that receive government financial assistance. This new set of rules intended to prevent political interference with decisions which companies will receive bailout money. Lobbyists looking to establish influence over bailout funds couldn't get their way no matter how many online payday loans they got. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner has declared that any officials that deal with bailout fund allocation can have no communications with lobbyists or lawmakers. This new declaration effectively puts the Department of the Treasury and all agents and otherwise only under the influence of the numbers and facts – like how online payday loans put all the information right in front of you. Geithner believes that the Treasury should not have outside influences, and should help those that need it, like online payday loans help those in need.

    I think that we are going to see a real change, not only in how the Country is run, but also in how it affects all of us. You can't have a system that favors a small few at the top and think that it will do anything for those below. I don't want to be rich, all I want is a good middle class life, I don't think that is too much to ask for.
