If you have "no place to go," come here!

So, has Treasury policy-making been outsourced to the banksters at Goldman-Sachs?

You'd certainly think so, and not just because the top two slots on domestic policy are vacant, economic policy slots are vacant, vacant, vacant, and vacant, public affairs slots are vacant, vacant, vacant, vacant, vacant, vacant, vacant, vacant, vacant, vacant, and vacant, and the two top slots on tax policy are vacant. I count 19 vacancies, and that's just at the top levels.

So who's minding the store?

How can policy be made at Treasury if there's nobody there to make it?

If there's nobody at Treasury to take calls, then where are the calls being placed?

NOTE Also via Democracy now, I see Obama's 3 down on Treasury appointments. 16 -- at least -- to go! The appointments are Neil Wolin (The Hartford Financial Services Group), Lael Brainerd (Brookings), and Stuart Level (Bush DOJ and Baker Botts).

Actually, I have a post coming this weekend, and interestingly enough, Treasury does answer the phones now.

because -- putting on my tinfoil hat, here -- it means they've accomplished whatever it was they wanted to accomplish by not answering the phone.
