Congressman Barney Frank of Newton, who is expected to take over as chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, says he's up to the task.
He tells WBZ-AM today that he doesn't agree with those who say Democrats don't understand capitalism.
After all, he said, he represents communities like Newton, Brookline, and Wellesley -- where capitalism is "hardly going out of style."
The Committee oversees the nationís housing and financial services sectors including banking, insurance, real estate, and securities.
