    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.
    The "Party of NO" having originals ideas of their own? That's a good one.

    Sen. Ben Nelson, Nebraska Democrat, joined with Republicans to oppose Reid’s motion on the bill, citing concerns about the bill’s impact on car manufacturers in his state.
    Seems random.

    Snowe also said that Republicans have added need to hold out in unanimity against the bill to gain leverage in negotiations, in particular because they have not been assured by Reid that he will not block them from offering amendments to the bill during debate.
    Just politics, nothing to see here.

    Looks like they are just playing politics and will likely not oppose it forever?

    and the American public continues to lose.

    At least the public will know who sides with them and who sides with the Corporation.

    “They don’t want a consumer protection agency at all, let’s be honest. We’ve tried to help people who have been taken to the cleaners … to give them some protection or the first time, to give them some protection. At this hour, to consider that too radical to people is stunning to me.” — Sen. Chris Dodd

    For a second day in a row, Republicans have turned their backs on ordinary Americans interests. It is shameful.

    Please name a few of those interests and quote the portions of the bill which empower those interests. I don't expect an exhaustive list, just a couple specific examples would be fine.

    Instead there was finally a single Democrat that went with Republicans instead of rushing another bad bill down our throats.

    In which way does the public lose?

    So you would rather have this far from perfect bill rushed through Congress instead of improved upon?

    Re: GOP senators block debate on finance bill

    Maybe they blocked it because they disagree with the Dems? I'm sick of the Democrats falsely painting Republicans as the enemies of Americans because they don't support Democrat legislation. Obama's words regarding this were highly immature and arrogant. Here is a link describing the Dems bill. http://newsmax.com/Morris/Morris-CFP...4/27/id/357046
