GOP protects banks from regulations

It’s an interesting stance.  Will using the word ‘bailout’ fool and scare some people into backing the Republicans in doing nothing?  Will the Republicans be able to make regulations the enemy — regulations against the entities that stuck it to Americans, regulations that will prevent them doing it again?

We all know what opposing regulations says about the GOP, but doesn’t it bring up questions about what it says about Americans?  The sharp partisan differences over how to respond to the 2008 crisis that caused a near meltdown on Wall Street should remind us of the need for regulations, and we should all pay careful attention.  None of us, no matter our political philosophy, should allow nothing to be done — nothing isn’t a solution!
