    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?
    Can you tell me exactly what problems existed and how this bill fixed them?

    it's amazing that those who defended dubya seem not to now be able to recognize the meltdown occurred on his watch
    the new president is trying to clean up the inherited mess and install some semblance of regulation where there was none
    after dicknbush's treasury transferred taxpayer dollars of the wage earner to cover the losses of the wealthy
    an amazingly ignorant bunch with the collective memory of an alzheimers patient
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it

    yep ... after the deregulation was in effect
    who appointed the treasury secretary who was proposing to hand out over a $trillion of taxpayer money based on a one page "dissertation" of the intended process

    It's Obama's mess now..no excuses, and Obama is making it worse not to mention he's pissing all over the constitution along with all his Marxist minions and in there lays my biggest complaint.

    I think we all know what problems existed, now that the banks had to be bailed out. All that has been discussed at some length. Do you mean to say that you're unaware of the problems that existed prior to the crash of '08?

    As for how and whether the bill will fix them, we won't know that until it becomes public. Right now, it has yet to be debated by the full house or senate.
