WASHINGTON – Undaunted by a Senate setback, Democrats appeared increasingly confident Monday they will be able to take advantage of Americans'
anger at Wall Street and push through the most sweeping new controls on financial institutions since the Great Depression.
The Senate, in a 57-41 vote, failed to get the 60 supporters needed to proceed on the regulatory overhaul. One Democrat, Sen. Ben Nelson of Nebraska,
joined with the Republicans.
All part of the show,right? we all know both parties won't really pass anything that will hold wall street responsible and any new regulatory agency
will be about as worthless as the SEC.
