    Who do you think wrote Dodd/Frank? Who do you think just took over the Treasury Department?

    What makes you think Obama actually opposes the changes?

    Notice, the house committee still had to approve the rules and regulations. If lobbyists at major firms have good ideas for the house to consider, why do you have a problem with that? Would you rather write the rules and regulations yourself instead?

    Isn't he supposed to be the guy who represents the common man? I assume you are asking why do I think he approves of the changes that favor the bankers. So if he's so egalitarian he should be angry that laws are being passed that favor the rich.

    If only there were some way to find out Obama's opinion on something. Like, if basically everything he said were recorded and everything he did were photographed or something. Or maybe he'd have some kind of personnel in charge of delivering messages to the public.

    It's a complicated answer, so I'll simply say that Obama has never been "the guy how represents the common man" - his four plus years in office should have disabused you of that notion long ago. Obama represents the fringes - the very rich and the very poor.

    Hey at least it is a step up compared to the last guy, who only represented the very rich he could get backing from.

    Politicians that support and allow this are traitors and should be handled as such. Un-****ing-believable.

    And do you think there is zero cash or favor flow from these banks directly to our politicians? They're being bought like packs of cigarettes.

    You don't see any problem with a corporation writing its own laws then buying the votes needed to pass it?

    If there's anyone you can trust to act in the best interest of the people, its a lobbying group openly bent on looking after the best interest of its lobby. Right? Right?!?!

    To be a bit more fair about this. It shouldn't surprise anyone the Republican controlled House had the lobbyists give so much input, (I am being nice). Remember the 'assistance' the Healthcare Industry gave so generously in helping write the Part C law for the Republican controlled Congress during BushII's time in office?

    But don't despair and decry just yet. The Democrat controlled Senate must pass the bill before it gets to the President, who if we all recall is being barraged by a series of GOP lead attacks on everything they can think of, not to mention the tornado here in Oklahoma. He is a tad busy at the moment.

    I understand the lament, we Citizens of this Grand and Glorious Republic are known for our lack of patience. These days the microwave is too slow!!!
