    My opinion is that the conservative talking point is the right decision. The liberal one of tax and spend is not the answer.

    The "conservatives" did not have very conservative financial policy. They were hypocrites and shouldn't have been elected. However, Obama is seriously over spending at an alarming rate. It's insane.

    And, well he shouldn't. It's time to get on with passing strong financial regulatory reform.

    I would rather have the government remove itself so that the economy can breath The government can help by shrinking. It needs to become smaller and lower taxes. The market can fix itself, the government doesn't need to become a parasite that grows bigger and bigger.

    Well, in some cases, regulation is needed. I would like to see Glass-Steagal put back in play. It was the dismantling of this act that led to the economic meltdown were are now experiencing.
