    Who cares?

    Bad legislation is bad legislation no matter who votes for it.

    I wish you guys would tire of this partisan crap and actually look at whether it helps or not.

    I'll give the dems kudos on Wall Street reform. It has to be better than what we have now. The alternative was to just re-instate Glass-Steagall.

    Anyway, I'd like to see the Wall-Streeters starting companies and creating jobs instead of gambling on derivatives and selling-short sucking up peoples' retirement investments.

    I'm having a very difficult time believing that anything this Congress and administration plan is good or good for the USA in general.

    They have done everything possible to earn my distrust.

    Tomorrow? Down over 300 today.

    I honestly believe we have become a nation of fools guided by fools. What will it take for these people to get a clue?

    The way it is now there is no reason for investors to throw money away. Its a rigged game. IMHO we need the government to keep Wall Street honest, or at least honest for Wall Street.

    I'm waiting to hear what ideas you have. After the last two years of high finance by criminals, (remember Bernie Madoff was going to run the SEC as an example) it would be nice to see Wall Street monitored by real regulators.

    Ah yes the left just loves more Government control. Do you need for them to burp you and change your diaper too?

    I dont know that people ever get a clue. There are many that would claim it's dark at noon.
