My talents and contributions, not my lovelies, are “a particular incentive to welcome my assistance”

Representative Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) is upset that the government is not spoon-feeding assistance to organizations that want bailout funds and have minority and women owned firms as partners.  (HT: Nealz Nuze)

Waters, a senior member of the Financial Services Committee, said she appreciated that the Treasury officials were responding to concerns raised by the Congressional Black Caucus. But she said Treasury should be required to give priority to firms that include minority and women owned firms as partners.

“Even under the updated guidelines, the burden remains on minority- and women-owned businesses to find willing partners among a select group of very large asset managers who do not have a particular incentive to welcome their assistance,” Waters said.

I don’t want a bailout in the first place, and I certainly don’t want a priority bailout based on my vagina.
