When talking to people, we are bound to be asked what Ron Paul would do.

President’s Working Group on Financial Markets
Here's the initial spin-"I don't see why it's a big deal."

Fully televised meetings and audits of the group need to be implemented first.

So basically Ron Paul will want to use this group to expose the federal reserve? Because their are Federal Reserve chairs on the President’s Working Group on Financial Markets?

Isn't the issue that this group, meets in complete secrecy with no oversight or accountability to anyone other than the presidient? Congress, and thereby the peoples representatives, are thereby excluded from having any idea, input or impact on decisions that arguably can be extremely influential in their ability to manipulate the markets and monitary policy.

He was asking McCain whether he would keep it, get rid of it, or make it public and transparent so that the people know what kind of policies these people are creating for our country.

But that wasn't the point of the question. The point was to show that McCain doesn't know anything about economics (or the types of groups his Secretary of the Treasury would be participating in).
