      ...rich people of 2010 are more greedy than 1990's rich people? I doubt that. People are people.

        They screwed up Wall Street so bad, they're in a panic. They're very insecure, but they can't help doing more of what caused the initial problem. They're so afraid of a collapse they want to get what they can as fast as possible, which of course makes a collapse more likely.
        We have to have a stable Wall Street, (which means real regulation) and we really need the "transaction fee" proposed by Rep. deFazio.

        •  You are personalizing this too much (0+ / 0-)

          "Wall Street" is thousands of people with differing and sometimes flatly contradictory motivations. Saying that "Wall Street" did this or that is like saying that Daily Kos wants or doesn't want something: some or many people might, but it's hard to pin the entity itself down at all.
