    This is another government take over that protects its own like Freddy and Fanny.

    This legislation is a failure on both counts," Sen. Judd Gregg (R-N.H.) said in a statement that denounced the compromise as failing to address "shoddy underwriting practices" or problems with the government-sponsored entities Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. "It will not encourage much-needed stability and confidence in our financial markets. It will not significantly reduce systemic risk in our financial sector."

    Does this not scare you? Or you just trust the same folks that caused the economy to collapse to "fix it". Regulations that do what? You don't know, yet you're gonna trust these people to just "do something"

    It doesn't scare him because his ilk is in charge.

    The problem is, the same people who created this mess, the Gov't, are going to fix it with legislation that no one knows how it will work... till it's in place?

    Would you trust your doctor if he said "Hey, ya know, that bypass I did on ya? Yeah it appears to have caused some new problems, so I'm gonna try some new stuff, but don't worry we'll find out if it works after we're done. Oh no, we have no idea if it will be the right thing, just trust me"

    Here is a little more info, they believe they can restrict the dangers of a free market by restricting "risk".

    Yeah, this doesn't work. Never ever has, never ever will... work. All you do is retard growth, and shift the risk taking elsewhere. You cannot control a free market with regulation like they are trying to do.
    I'm only contending your implication that these guys are trying to make the bill stealthy or something. The bill itself strikes me as a fancy bandaid slapped on a gunshot wound.

    That's because you think Gov't can FIX the problem.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Either you didn't read my post very carefully or you have a severe overestimation of the medical capabilities of a bandaid.

    Surely, no one is going to argue that financial reform wasn't needed, are they?

    Well, maybe. I've seen arguments that 2 + 2 is not equal to 4, or that the sky is not blue, after all.

    So, are there arguments for or against this particular bill that don't hinge on "Democrats (Republicans) are all a bunch of idiots"?

    You know, arguments about what is actually being proposed?
    "Donald Trump is a phony, a fraud... [he's] playing the American public for suckers." Mitt Romney
