Treat the earth well: it was not given to you by your parents, it was loaned to you by your children. We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors, we borrow it from our Children. ~ Ancient American Indian Proverb
What it shows was that the initial Senate opposition was purely symbolic. House Dems overwhelmingly approved it, and in the end, so did Senate Dems.The House passed its version of the Financial Services Act of 1999 on July 1, 1999, by a bipartisan vote of 343-86 (Republicans 205–16; Democrats 138–69; Independent 0–1),[note 1] two months after the Senate had already passed its version of the bill on May 6 by a much-narrower 54–44 vote along basically-partisan lines (53 Republicans and 1 Democrat in favor; 44 Democrats opposed).
On November 4, the final bill resolving the differences (between the House and Senate versions) was passed by the Senate 90-8,[note 4] and by the House 362-57.[note 5] The legislation was signed into law by President Bill Clinton on November 12, 1999
