    I believe, ny friend, that you will always be disappointex as long you expect the government to fix a problem.
    The repeal of Glass Stegal was fixing a problem that wasn't a problem. It was an asinine move.

    Seems to be the only time they attempt to vote in the direction the people want, you know, those lowly peasants they were voted in to 'represent'. They are all the same, left-right-center-sideways....all the same.

    Well 95% of their goal is to be reelected.
    And congress has a record low approval rating by the vast majority of people love their congressman/woman

    This is an outrage. We went the total wrong direction on this. Instead of ending this too big to fail ****, its gotten worse!

    But... But.... But.... Obama promised us that Frank-Dodd was going to fix all this!!! We heard all about how it was a great accomplishment and everything!

    It was PRESENTED as fixing a problem. In reality it was a move by Wall Street to repeal a law that had restrained their ability to plunder the US Treasury for 6 decades. It was corruption and nothing more, a bright and shining example of poor governance by Clinton et al.

    Well, that would actually require gov't getting out of the way and letting us lowly citizens dictate things. No one on capital hill will allow that minus a select few. They know better than us, remember?

    NO she doesn't, she takes advantage of low information ideologues by pushing the "Too Big to Fail" false narrative, that was drummed up by the Democrats so they could cover their asses for their part in CREATING the Sub-prime bubble.
