"...administration officials called Frank's plan too weak."

Now if the administration with it's host of enablers of deregulation think that the legislation is too weak - there must be holes wide enough for a MAC truck to roll through! Contact your legislators and demand that they enact real rules and regulatory reform NOW!!!

These sums are not nearly so impressive as the ROI. Those numbers would make your head spin. Corporate welfare is at an all time high.

Well,Obama, at least, appears to be supporting tough regulation. So he hasn't been "bought" on this one, hopefullly. By the way, about the contributions themselves: the financial sector, along with other corporate sectors, will always give more to the ruling party. And since they can count on Repubs to support them for ideological reasons, they need to pick off as many Dems as they can.

What counts is what they get, or don't, for their money.

The "Tax Payers Future Generations Bank" is what we should rename the Treasury. Created for the banks to plunder at their descretion.

THE HIRED HANDS WORKING FOR GOLDMAN-SACHS AND JP MORGAN CHASE

The financial legislation is the most important on the agenda, more important than medical reform, because the retirement income of everybody depends on it. There should be no loopholes.

Another hit like last year, and the crisis will be so monstrous - that WW3 will erupt.

Another possibility is to change to a socialist-communist system that does not depend on economic growth and without financial markets: Will the US accept it? Not likely.

Then, never mind, JP Morgan Chase, Goldman-Sachs and their hired agents in Congress: get the toughest international legislation in place to prevent the felonious banking robbers from bankrupting whole countries.

Its already too late for us as they robbed us dry. Printing more worthless money wont help. Other countries are working against using the dollar already and this will gain steam quickly. Its been predicted that we will have a bank holiday and we will be bankrupt. See how that fits for national security.

These games of greed are continuing to destroy us and they know what they are doing. My guess is the Bilderberg Group are behind much of this. Obama and Hillary secretly met with them on the Camp trail. This has been kept out of the media. Anyone can google it. This is all a calculated change in this country and has been a long term plan for years.

I don't know how much overlap there is among the Blue Dogs and the 62 members of the New Dems, but according to the New Dems website as a group they also do not support the public option in health care reform.

New Dems clearly are Democrats in name only. They are showing themselves to be opportunists and scoundrels. Having an R behind your name makes it hard to suck swill from the public trough... no problem, we'll call ourselves Democrats, and swill away, our poor "constituents" none the wiser. Well, we are catching on, a--holes. And we are mad as hell.
