    Ha! Especially the back doors.

    Thank goodness Elizabeth Warren beat Scott Brown! Though Scott Brown did just get a nice, higher paying job at Fox News, which continues to be the media wing of the Republican party.

    The best people you could hire to investigate Wall Street misdoing would be from Wall Street. Of course you would have to depend on the integrity of the new investigators to forget old friendships and loyalties……

    According to people like onguard, it’s terrible if labor copies what management has been doing to the workers.

    It is better to have somebody like Mary Jo White that knows a lot about Walll Street rather than someone who knows nothing.
    Whether she will be good or not remains to be seen.
    I forgot to see if she was confirmed.

    Looks like a sausage factory… and reminds me of a quote about not wanting to see how sausages are made.

    Gotta disagree, mike, and I know you were being somewhat sarcastic. And I don’t believe that regulators should come from Wall St. either, even though they know many backdoors.
    -
    What’s needed is actual Congressional oversight. I was really happy to see Elizabeth Warren asking regulators how many cases they’d brought to trial. When they protested that it was just, you know, really really hard, she said ’Yes, but how many? The answer was virtually none. First step. Why not might be a few steps down the road after some people have been replaced.

    -
    Another thing that needs to happen is to enact laws that can be understood, so that when they are broken, convictions can be achieved.
    -
    Part of that step is to close, legally, the door between Congress and staff and lobbyists. When you work in or for Congress, you cannot be a registered lobbyist. Period.
    -
    I’d be happy to take testimony from Wall Streeters. Under oath. Part of investigation or regulation? Nuh-uh.
    -
    Just like you’d be happy to take testimony from drug dealers and drug runners. But put them in law enforcement? I don’t think so.

    Actually it’s the Dems that love to get their sticky fingers on business.
    Remember your guys hero Barney “loves” Franks forcing banks to loan money to people that had no chance of paying it back?

    the way ima complains, it makes me wonder if he/she is a millionaire? Part of the 1% at the top?
    Why should millionaires owe less taxes than their secretaries? And why do people who are Not millionaires want to keep paying at a higher rate than those that make 3,5,10,20 times ore than they do.
    You can say millionaires pay more actual money, but what % of their pay is it in comparison to what someone who makes 10,000.00
