    That logic?

    No, that's the history part, not the logic. Just look at how much all those regulations and spending bills helped to get out of the Great Depression.

    The sprawling legislation would give the government new powers to break up companies that threaten the economy
    I have a huge probem with this. Who gets to decide which companies war broken up and on what grounds do they make that decision?

    This is bad. I can see it already.

    Not sure what to make of this. I think reforms need to be made in this area, but I don't know enough on the topic to know if these are the right reforms.
    I'm no expert either, but from what I've seen in the news I think the reformers need more reforming than Wall Street. I think that there may be problems on Wall Street, but they are being masked by screwups of the federal govt in their relationship with Wall Street. Frankly I think any perceived greed on Wall Street was exacerbated by govt policies at Freddie Mac and Fanny Mae. The policies of the fed govt to force stupid risk taking on Wall Street was part of the cause.

    Now the govt, who is going to be the expert on regulating Wall Street? Who are we kidding?

    It wouldn't encourage the kind of behavior that got us into the mess in the first place. If you're just going to get bailed out in the end, where's the disincentive?
    The people running the ponzi schemes made out with lots of money. Where's the disincentive for them? They don't care about their company.

    just a bit off topic, what exactly makes obama a marxist, i mean, sure he's a bit more left than bush, but still, the entire Australian political system is left, our right wing party is called the liberals, and we're no where near communism, sadly enough, so unless he starts dissloving the state, i guess he's not marxist, but for those who claim he is, what makes him so?

    No, it's not.

    It keeps the riche-wing business-owing ****bags in check. It's a check/balance on business greed.

    It's a good thing... for EVERYBODY except the reiche-wing assholes who run corrupt criminal business enterprises.

    Look at the golden parachute the people running AIG made. They don't care that AIG got bailed out, they're rich.
