    Gutting Sarbanes-Oxley

    goodbye-to-reforms-of-2002: Personal Finance News from Yahoo! Finance

    Like the Wall Street needs a bigger edge
    Anyone who thinks investing in these companies is not a rigged game is beyond dumb.

    The Banking lobby dollars carry the day....again

    Democrat or Republican it does not matter
    Those Bozo's are all for sale.

    Cheers

    I agree. Politicians don't care about anything but themselves. They are all for sale to the highest bidder.

    You can not find a stronger against government run health care than presented above.

    There has ever been only one truly progressive, for-the-people Senator. Unfortunately, he was killed for it in 2002.

    You think Wellstone was different.
    Article I saw says he voted liberal on all issues.
    So what made this guy special?
    IIR you stated you were not Liberal.

    Well then you have a remembering problem. Not that progressive and liberal are much different.

    And yes, Wellstone was quite different. You don't need me to explain it to you. Do a little research for yoursrelf. There's no need to spoonfeed you information that is right at your fingertips.

    So you're saying you're a Progressive...I guess...which isn't "much different" from liberal.

    I read that he voted liberal on all issues. How much more research do I need to do?! You implied that he was special. Why?
    It seems to me that a guy who votes liberal on all issues is just like any other liberal who votes liberal on all issues. I see no shortage in any of our legislative bodies of that type.

    Sarbanes Oxley has also produced a lot of unintended consequences that have made life harder for young firms who are responsible for most of the job creation in this country in the past 30 years.

    Congress cares about you if you fall into the category of voter who is on the fed dole and keeps us in power.
