    Of course, it has to be that the GOP has been bought by Wall Street. Not that, well, they have original ideas of their own.

    Well, whatever furthers the leftist narcissism.
    It is true that Wall Street has bought the Republican Party. It is also true that Wall street has bought the Democratic Party, which is the party that Goldman-Sachs has given the most money to. Today, there are hearings on the Goldman-Sachs fraud case. Want to make a wager that the Democrats won't cover it up? I will take that bet because the Democrats are no better than the Republicans. Both parties have been bought by Wall Street, lock, stock, and barrel.

    Do you think that Goldman Sachs got their money's worth in light of the Dodd bill?

    Do you think Barack Obama got his money's worth from Goldman Sachs donations?

    Re: GOP senators block debate on finance bill

    I've read up on the main highlights of the bill, and I like about 70% of it and dislike 30%. The main thing I do like about the bill is that it would propose a company investing in derivatives and other high-risk, high-reward investments to spin off a separate division. As long as it doesn't lead to a plethora of DBAs pissing in their own bathwater, I'm all for it. It'll leave the free wheelers able to gamble on the future while middle America focuses on the present without the bottom potentially falling out from underneath them overnight.

    Republicans probably shouldn't have blocked this. They're taking what little transparency Obama really will offer the people out of the equation.

    Obama offers simple narrative of GOP obstruction, but key lawmakers tell another story | The Daily Caller - Breaking News, Opinion, Research, and Entertainment

    virginia's mark warner, dem, agrees with stiffneck nelson---"concerns being raised by republicans about potential bailouts of large financial institutions are legitimate"
