    Washington (CNN) -- A Senate committee on Wednesday passed a proposal aimed at helping protect the economy from future meltdowns and taxpayers from more Wall Street bailouts.

    The Senate Agriculture Committee voted 13-8 in favor of the bill, which would impose regulations on the complex system of Wall Street trades known as derivatives.

    Senate leaders now will look at merging the measure with a financial regulations reform bill already passed by the Senate Banking Committee that is headed for debate by the full chamber.

    Fascism with a (D) = Peace, love beads, sweetness and light.

    Fascism with an (R) = Hitler.

    Kneejerk vacuum head Conservatives cannot see why Wall Street and the Banks should not be allowed to create another situation that nearly created a worldwide depression.

    But go ahead and defend the money bags until November. See how this plays in this years elections.

    The exact same could be stated about Fannie and Freddie but there was no comment on that. They are equally as responsible for the near meltdown as wall St. To think otherwise is to be a blind partisan fool.
