The Senate has scheduled a showdown early next week on Wall Street reform, and lawmakers familiar with negotiations say a deal is unlikely by then.

As the great Levin explained on last nights show, this bill is basically a government take over of the financial institutions.
there is fire everywhere with these idiots. Everything must be done immediately with them. Ram and jam is there motto!
We are going to jam it in November... right back up their collective commie a$$es!
Ready, fire, aim.
Democrat Senators may be having to choose between Obama’s Chicago gang and Wall Street contributors.

1400 pages of junk and legalese in this bill,
if the democrats dont move fast, people might find out what’s in it
If democrats want it so bad, the taxpayers will get it real bad
Blankfein [Goldman CEO] made the most of the time by chatting with elected officials and chatting up the Rev. Al Sharpton.
What in the world does Al Sharpton have to do with the US financial system?
I’m cynical enough to think this bill will not pass and there is a reason for what they are doing. I’m thinking this is a scheme: talk the bill up and knock it down, make up plebs happy and defuse some of the voter anger in November.
I don’t care what the bill does, I am getting sick and tired of bills that are thousands of pages long.

I called my Senator...his staffer said he hasn’t made a statement on this...what the heck...they are going to have access to my checking account and credit card transactions and he has no statement.
giving negotiators only four more days to reach a deal on a document exceeding 1,400 pagesI'm pretty sure they didn't write 1,400 pages' worth in some earlier four day period.
I am aware... but then if they do... it will be WAR!
Repubs were claiming the other day that “we have a deal” (which is never a good sign...)
The fire is there to get anything done that they can before the November elections. Because after that, Obama will be a lame duck.
Where is the leftist outrage over an invasion of privacy? The government will have access to your bank account, savings account, and credit card accounts... This is a total takeover of the financial industry.
