Wall Street needs regulation — but regulation that will work without turning one of our most sophisticated industries into a wholly owned subsidiary of the U.S. government. That's exactly what current reform proposals would do,

So, why are Republican senators reportedly set to cave in?

Sen. Chris Dodd's reform bill, gives the federal government unprecedented control over Wall Street without changing any of the perverse incentives that created our financial mess.

Again, why cave?

Who says they are going to cave in? Have you forgotten that we are in the minority? Unless at least 15 of them in the senate and 150 in the House vote with us there is no chance for our side to win

Do you really need to ask this??? There is a reason why the Republican party didn’t attract many of it’s base out to vote for it in 2008.
