Newest White House Advisor Has Ties to Airlines Amidst Bailout Discussions

SEE Politico: ‘White House to bring Hassett back as economic adviser amid crisis’

Reaction from Allied Progress: “As airlines seek a bailout from DC, White House-returnee Kevin Hasset has been serving on the board of a tax consultancy that helps the industry reduce their tax payments. If he’s going to help oversee a $200 billion bailout package for industry, there needs to be strong Congressional oversight on how the money is spent.”
