The problem is congress. The republicans who control congress have been chosen in the tea-party spirit. That means they will not increase taxes, and they will not do anything about regulations. This is because the tea-party has been hijacked by the Republicans, just like what happened when the religious right was hijacked before. The problem with Wall-street is lack of regulation. That partisan politics, the fed and corruption in DC also played their parts. If there were real non-corrupt politicians in congress, the president could have made some more legislation on Wall-street. I think what he needs to do now is to use the justice-system to his advantage. And, I don't mean arresting the people outside the buildings. Maybe do something to get cases going on the people inside the buildings. What the republican party is planning now is to not create any jobs with government stimulus. They could get jobs going with the "job-bill" in a day. They are talking down on China. If America can't get loans from China and access to their precious metals, they will have huge problems. So, good job republicans on putting all the jobs in America in jeopardy. I hope the size of the campaign-contributions was worth it.
