There is no way that once put in place will the rules be tightened without political bloodshed.
First of all I don't buy the White House "finger pointing" that this mess was caused by unassailable liberal policies under Presidents over 8 years ago & under Congresses over 14 years ago.
, but even if I did accept that, then the failure of the Bush administration to correct these "Problems" in over 8 years can only be attribute to either:
1. Gross Incompetence
2. Willful (& probable criminal ) collusion
Which is it? (& either choice means they should be thrown out of office)Are you really going to stand by the argument that in over 8 years, GW Bush has no responsibility in regards to our current economic crisis?
(if anyone reading my arguments really believes that, then there are obviously no combination of words in the English language that will change your mind so feel free to not read or respond to any of my arguments....They are meant for those whose heads are not buried so deeply............ in the sand)
(the way I & many economists.....(& just plain common sense) see it is that if you stop all Congressional oversight & let greed overtake the business culture in this country, what you see was inevitable!...You can't give the keys to the hen house to the fox....... & then feign surprise that all the hens are missing, or try to blame it on the dog next door!)
