    The bill passed 59 to 39. Three Republicans -- Sen. Scott Brown and Maine's senators, Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe -- supported the bill, while two Democrats, Sen. Russ Feingold of Wisconsin and Sen. Maria Cantwell of Washington, joined Republicans in opposing it. Wall Street Reform Passes Senate With Scott Brown's Backing

    Republicans need to realize that in order to get Republicans elected in the Northeast they will have to elect more centrist candidates

    Well, i have not paid enough attention to this bill....to know enough to comment one way or the other, as to what benefits or drawbacks that it may have....but the one thing that does concern me is Russ Feingold's vote....In most all other issues or votes, I tended to agree with the stances that Feingold has taken, even if he bucked the party....so I need to delve in to this and see why feingold voted against it....?

    Republicans have been running "centrist" candidates for the past few decades. Maybe people just actually want a change?
