    Financial Reform Talks Near Collapse, Some GOPers Threaten To Defect

    Excerpted from “Financial Reform Talks Near Collapse, Some GOPers Threaten To Defect” By Brian Beutler, TPMDC, April 27, 2010, 5:41PM
    Bipartisan Wall Street reform negotiations appeared on the brink of collapse Tuesday night after Republican and Democratic principals found themselves at an impasse over the issue of consumer financial protection. But though Republicans have been promising all week to sustain a filibuster, blocking debate on the Democrats' legislation, they now seem prepared to cede the current fight, explicitly saying that, if talks don't bear fruit soon, they'll allow the bill to move to the floor. …
    Well, we can only hope the Republican leadership hurries up and gets out of the way.

    Right, because up until now the bill has been a perfect example of financial regulation.

    Obama is trying to reform the world in his first term. Easy there killer, let the right swallow the health care. Financial reform would be good to have a vote on in early-mid october so the mid-terms elections are, " Oh look, we all wanted comprehensive financial reform. We got it, cool." *Votes incumbent*

    Congress should financially handle themselves before they even think about trying to regulate Wall Street. Thank you Republicans for preventing the Dems from trying to ram through more garbage.

    November 4th, 2008. The majority of Americans elect Barack Obama to be the 44th president. In his platform, finance reform, health care etc.

    Obama ran basically saying he wasn't Bush. People hated Bush for his poor war policy and his government spending. Obama is just like Bush when it comes to deficit spending, only worse. People may have elected Obama for what he ran on, but we don't like how he plans on reforming things. The healthcare bill is disliked by the majority of Americans, yet Obama pushed it through and gave democracy a smack to the face. Americans do want reform in all those areas, just not Democrat reform.

    Easy, spend less. The government wastes so much money and overpays for many projects. The government needs to make serous cuts and live within its means like any normal person. The government needs to shrink and drastically reduce spending in areas that it can.

    Less government spending. They should reduce taxes to increase investment and allow struggling businesses to keep some extra money to get through. If anything government spending ultimately hurts the nation.
