    Actually....your facts are wrong. But Democrats are certainly not immune to corporate corruption either.

    dodd and obama are #'s 1 and 2 recipients of aig contributions

    then, the bailout of the toobig, so ugly, including those obscene bonuses, tax cheat in chief geithner feels compelled to instruct the no-accounts to keep the details SECRET from the sec

    Geithner's New York Fed Pushed AIG To Keep Sweetheart Deals Secret (READ THE AIG EMAILS)

    the same overseers obama is now siccing (when they're not downloading porn) on goldman sachs

    darn those greedy, corrupt republicans and their elitist, fatcat friends

    what this country needs is a good, strong dose of CHICAGO STYLE leadership

    LOL!

    It's fun to watch conservatives try to justify blocking even discussion of financial reform. No debate! We musn't talk about things! NEVER DISCUSS THINGS!

    When you are the "Party of NO"....you have to block discussion....otherwise, it becomes obvious that you are the party of no ides.

    "Tort reform" is nothing more than a GOP talking point. Sure....its a good idea...but every credible study has shown it would amount to less than 1% of a difference in health care costs.
    Typical Republican "photo-op"....it sounds good...but it isn't real reform.

    If I am not mistaken there a commission looking into the causes of the financial collapse. Does it make sense to screw around with another huge segment of the economy before we have some facts.

    It seems that polititians are willing to screw up one of the last remaining areas where America dominates on the alter of cheap politics.

    Not sure if any of you watched the Goldman Sachs show trial put on by the senate today. Two things it seemed to show a) senators are bullies and cowards. Distorting the truth because they have the power to screw over the panelists and b) they have so little understanding of the financial system it should give us all pause that these are the folks writiing these new regs everyone wants.

    So are we going to talk about the content of the bill or what?
