Why would we expect congress to realize anything?  Other than undeserved pay raises of course.

Put me down for dumb and complicit in the vote.  Though we wouldn't need the regulation if we didn't have the fed and we did have cash givaways ala the banker bailout.  They would just fail and go bankrupt the way god intended, then maybe we could get some legal prosecution happening to and a fraud investigation.  Man that would be sweet!

Amen. If there hadn't been a bailout, all the derivatives would have simply disappeared, extincted by the free market. Instead, the bailout opened up the citizens' safety deposit boxes, and handed over their savings to the derivatives fraudsters. And then told the fraudsters to go out and do it again. And they say that "capitalists" are against socialism. HA!

Hey Washington, I no longer read your posts, since you are a yellow-bellied anti-war nutjob and you have nothing in common with your namesake.

Did not read your post.  Do not like you.  Hope you stop posting here soon.

Hey, Missing_Link, is your icon a fairy? What's that yellow thing on your icon's belly? Are those high-heeled slippers?

You need to wear a t-shirt around that says: 'I support the bombing of Afghan weddings'.

When people get in your face tell 'em: 'You are a yellow-bellied anti-war nutjob'.
