Skip to comments.Senate passes financial regulation bill
Posted on 05/20/2010 6:41:26 PM PDT by markomalley
The Senate approved new far-reaching financial rules on Thursday aimed at preventing the risky behavior and regulatory failures that brought the economy to the brink of collapse two years ago and cost millions of Americans their jobs and savings.
The bill passed by a vote of 59 to 39, with four Republicans joining a majority of Democrats in supporting it.
The 1,500-page measure, shepherded through the Senate by Christopher J. Dodd (D-Conn.), chairman of the banking committee, seeks to reshape both Washington and Wall Street.
They successfully courted Republican Sens. Olympia J. Snowe and Susan Collins, both of Maine, in part by including in the final bill provisions that each wanted. Sen. Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa) also backed the bill. Equally critical was the last-minute push to win over Scott Brown (R), the Senate's newest member.

I will pay for a program that will guarantee to auto delete the GOP "give me" emails.
FLUSH THE BROWN.
It sure didn’t take that clown long to show is real colors.
He is a deal maker..just had to listen to him.
Yes, Americans will prevail. Don’t get into the mode your congressman or senator is the end all. WE THE PEOPLE GIVE POWER TO THE GOVERNMENT. We are just taking it back our country. It’s beyond time we take back our government, our education and our country. We have to fight! WE HAVE TO FIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is our country, We’re not the world’s country dumping ground for the deviants.
We have no one to represent us.
I stand proud knowing I didn't compromise my conservative morals by be fooled by, or even misrepresenting this classic RINO.
[Id like to see you manage me. And thousands of mes. ]
I’m already taking steps to avoid te coming confiscation of assets.
As somebody who has had some issues with Rush Limbaugh over the years, he is the lone voice of reason in the country right now for conservatives.
The DOW dropped 376 points and change (3%) on this news today. Of course they WANT you to think it dropped due to the Euro-debt. *SMIRK*
Alcoa and BANK OF AMERICA dropped sharply.
Another 500K jobs lost this past WEEK, NO manufacturing orders (Alcoa) and people are defaulting on mortgages left and right (BOA).
Things are just PEACHY!
Money hungry, power hungry elitist plus.
They’re all alike.
Do we need to talk to lawyers?
I’m in the dark as what to do.
I hate to lose any assets we’ve worked and saved for.
Indeed, and it’s such a shame.
It’s more then a shame.
We’re getting shafted and not by accident.
That’s what really pizzes me off.
OK Let’s all watch our savings go up in smoke tomorrow. Yippee! Then we will all be on the dole...but there isn’t any dole left.
I was so worried, I was so stressed. Now, I’m just preparing. F all of the Dems. I will survive. I don’t need gov at any level. These bureaucrats need to come to terms with the fact that their job is dispensable. WE DON’T NEED YOU. And AMERICA WILL WIN!!!!
I’m prepping, so are most of my fellow patriots. Gov, take a hike. We don’t need you, and you’re out of here.
It is just going to be a pretty bad situation for a minimum of five years and likely ten or more. The country is bankrupt, the only thing supporting the dollar is the collapse of the Euro. There’s plenty of things you can do though. Get rid of debt. Downsize expenditures. Buy a little gold. Start a Victory garden if you have a little land (I just did and the numbers aren’t all that bad). I have some classic cars that are indefinitely reparable and keep their value. Cut viciously now and you will be okay.
I know first hand that things are going to hades faster than you think. Tomorrow is going to be interesting to say the least. Get ready.
That will come. We’ll just go underground. People will use whatever means.
