    I hated Bush and the Republicans, but the Democrats seem ready to strengthen Wall Street even more, while leaving it unregulated and forcing us to throw trillions of more borrowed money at it in a few years.   So yeah...I'm really starting to wonder if Nader wasn't right.  If the Democrats can't fix health care when they have the Presidency, the House and the Senate, what can they do?  If McCain had been elected, would he have done anything different about the banking situation?  Would he have supported worse health care legislation then is now being offered from the Senate?

      Serious work is being done on new regulations for financial institutions.

      The Democrats/Obama just pulled our financial bus back from the cliff over which it was toppling.  I suspect you have no idea of what a real depression would have been like.

      Now they are crafting legislation and new regulations to keep the same problems from happening again in the same way.

      And they are working on "early warning" systems to help avoid future crises when the ultra-greedy find another rat hole through which they can scurry to grab the cheese.


      Surely I don't need to describe where we would be right now if we had a president who would likely veto any progressive legislation.
