USA was 3 hrs away from Economic, Political Collapse in September 2008

In a CSPAN call-in Paul Kanjorski (D) (PA-11) described what Congress told in September, in answer to a desperate American questioning the insanity of the TARP.

I was there when the secretary and the chairman of the Federal Reserve came those days and talked to members of Congress about what was going on... Here's the facts. We don't even talk about these things.

On Thursday, at about 11 o'clock in the morning, the Federal Reserve noticed a tremendous drawdown of money market accounts in the United States to a tune of $550 billion being drawn out in a matter of an hour or two.

The Treasury opened up its window to help. They pumped $105 billion into the system and quickly realized that they could not stem the tide. We were having an electronic run on the banks.
