  •  That's exactly what I fear (7+ / 0-)

    Anytime you hear reform from the current crop of politicians that rule...I cringe.  Often  it just means, find clever gimmicks and word games to make all seem like they have put in safeguards to ensure no abuses, but in actuality when one reads the fine print and details, it can be parsed and interpreted to make it legal and is just toothless theatre ..kabuki to appease the masses.

    And even if there is legislation or proposals put forth....lets see who the industry lobbyist are that "aid" in undermining or watering it down or even aid in writing it.

    Sorry I have had a bad day...and am really disgusted by the sad state of affairs in this country across the board.

    Government of, for, and by the wealthy corporate political ruling class elites. We are the 99%-OWS.
