The strongest consumer protections ever. Bringing transparency to financial dealings. Closing loopholes to stop recklessness and irresponsibility. Holding Wall Street accountable and giving shareholders new power in the financial system. President Obama lays out what Wall Street Reform is about, and questions whether opposition from the Senate Republican Leader might have something to do with his recent meeting with Wall Street executives.
This has got to be a win-win for the Democrats. If the Republican's continue to oppose this, surely the people will realize who is working for them... But then maybe I am giving the people too much credit.
If the Democrats can hold together on this, and all vote to approve it and make it stronger and better for the people instead of the Wall Street crowd and their cronies in the Republican party. It isn't going to be easy, and it is already drawing opposition from the Republican's.
We need this reform, in order to protect the people from the theft of our money by Wall Street. With Goldman now being prosecuted and maybe others to follow, we have to stay after them to make them realize we will not stand for their criminal ways.
