    It takes a while to build support or this kind of landmark legislation that bucks the power and wealth of Wall Street. It seems you think major political change should happen on your schedule. It doesn't work that way.

    But you both refuse to acknowledge in your hang up about everything being done when you want it done, is that it now has 58 co-sponsors in the House. How could the Democrats support it more?

    People still do not support Obamacare.

    We noted how. By voting on it when they had the numbers.

    And, it seems you missed my first post in this thread:



    Thank you President Obama!
    You have spent more time whining about those who do well from investments than almost anyone on this board So its hilarious to watch you Obama slurp over this news

    Everyone, including Obama, would have preferred a single payer system as opposed to the GOP insurance mandate. We will eventually have to upgrade to a single payer system.

    You sort of missed the whole point about taking time to buck Wall Street, didn't you?

    There was no gun held to their head. You claim in one breath that it takes time to "buck" Wall Street when the rest of the thread is about how great it is that the government has provided Wall Street everything it needed to get back to where it was before they screwed the economy up.

    Being glad to see a sign of economic improvement does not mean that I don't want to prevent banks too big to fail that necessitate taxpayer bailout.

    Can you answer this honestly - Are for or against reestablishing the firewall between investment banks and commercial banks?

    Well, that's all well and good, but plenty of things "worked that way."

    Just out of curiosity, how long exactly have they been pushing this bill to repeal the bipartisanly supported and Clinton backed Gramm-Leach-Bliley bill?

    But you both refuse to acknowledge in your hang up about everything being done when you want it done, is that it now has 58 co-sponsors in the House. How could the Democrats support it more?
    Um, it has nothing to do about when I want it done. It's kind of like Republicans presenting flat tax legislation when they are a minority just to appeal to the disenfranchised conservative base. If they wanna get it done, they need to do it when it can actually be done, not just pose the bill so you appear to be for it.

    Obama bashing dies down as long as the Dow is above the 13,000 benchmark.
