    Oh boy, an unelected council of government types deciding the fate of our private sector financial institutions. If you control finance, you indirectly control everything.

    Wonder if Cox, Dodd and Franks get to go to jail for their lack of oversite during this whole mess?? Kinda don't think so.

    They sure didn't enforce any of the regs that were in place and look at Dodd now trying to pretend he give a shit. The big bad banks?? Dodd and the rest of the Clowns were asleep at the switch. What a loser this guy is.

    Giving more power to a few bankers at the federal reserve instead of killing the fed like they should?

    Finiancial institutions need more regulations and oversight.
    That much is clear.

    We do not need to live in a Corporate Republic.

    Can we have a solution to this country's problems that involves limiting the power of politicians instead of expanding it?

    Same question for corporations instead of politicians.

    Giving the institution responsible for the mess more power makes no sense.

    It is like giving the fox complete access to the hen house to finish off the rest of the producing hens.

    Problem is what the Dimwits are doing is exactly opposite what the founding fathers set up. They are violating the constitution and are socialists. This country was made great by capitalism not by the gov't.
