Paulson Spoke to AARP, Others
Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson had a sit-down with officials at the headquarters of AARP on Tuesday, the day the details of the partial nationalization of certain U.S. banks was announced, Treasury confirmed Thursday night.
In addition to selling his bailout plan to skeptical lawmakers, Paulson has been pedaling it to interest groups and discussing the broader economy, Treasury said.
In addition to AARP, Paulson has met with the Rev. Jesse Jackson's Rainbow PUSH Coalition and other groups, Treasury said. Neel Kashhari, the man charged with administering the Wall Street bailout/rescue plan, also met with Jackson's group.
