Who's Killing Financial Reform?

Robert Reich, Robert Reich's Blog: "Senator Chris Dodd, the chairman of the Senate Banking Committee, scolded Wall Street representatives at a hearing Thursday for sending 'an army of lobbyists whose only mission is to kill the common-sense financial reforms' needed by the public. 'The fact is,' Dodd said, 'I am frustrated, and so are the American people.' He charged that Wall Street's intransigence was the reason for Congress's failure to pass any bill to regulate the Street. 'The refusal of large financial firms to work constructively with Congress on this effort borders on insulting to the American people who have lost so much in this crisis.'"

Lobbyists Retreat but Never Surrender

Michael Winship, Truthout: "George Washington's birthday is approaching and with it will come the attendant mythology: hatchet and cherry tree, wooden teeth, throwing a silver dollar across the Potomac River - or the Rappahannock. Of course, as the old joke goes, a dollar went a lot farther then. Today, if you tried to hurl a silver dollar across the Potomac, chances are some member of Congress would snatch it in flight like one of those nature film grizzly bears grabbing a salmon in mid-leap."
