Huffington on IMSNBCI Bolster CUs
WASHINGTON (3/23/09)--Credit unions are healthy and should be bolstered, according to Arianna Huffington, co-founder and editor in chief of The Huffington Post. Huffington appeared on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” show Friday morning to talk about the financial crisis, specifically related to news of American International Group’s bonus package. “There’s a lot of good stuff happening in this country--look at credit unions,” Huffington said. “How many people know that credit unions are healthy, they keep lending money and there have been no problems with them? “Why not bolster what is good in our economy as opposed to continuing to subsidize what is not working?” she added.
