Posted on 08/01/2010 4:23:09 AM PDT by geraldmcg
Remember the 2,074-page monstrosity that was ObamaCare? . . . Forget about it. Somewhere in obscurity, where legislation is actually written, the game of one-up-manship appears to be completely out of hand, as the U.S. Senate on Thursday passed the financial reform bill that eclipsed 2,300 pages.
Like most experts in the financial world, economic analyst and professional investment consultant, Peter DArruda, is watching this legislation unfold with reservationsnot just because of the size of the bill, bloated with hundreds of new regulations, but because of what Senator Dodd (D-CT) said as he ushered the bill through . . . something along the lines of, Well have to pass it before we know how it will work.
With this financial reform bill comes a tsunami of more variables that breed greater uncertainty so much that economists say it will all but seize up the investment market and exacerbate the already stifling recession.
Even the bill itself raises conflicting assessments. While Barack Obama stands over it with the promise that it will ensure taxpayers never have to pay for bailouts again, others are simultaneously arguing that it virtually ensures more bailouts are to come.

I am confident that this legislation has conferred incredible powers to the bureaucrat-class that are unconstitutional, but so numerous that the challenges will take decades.
Just curious geraldmcg. You’ve been a member here for ten years?
Why all of a sudden (out-of-the-blue) ten threads in two days? What, and/or who is WebToday?
The 'Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act' is another step in the direction of more government and union domination of all that we do. Nothing in the Act controls Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac--they remain a multibillion dollar drain on the US Treasury--or the financial disasters their corruption and poor management have created.
This bill was used to get unions more control of companies, and to get minorities and women more jobs where they can never be fired. Publicly traded companies will need to allow the unions to seat their members on the boards of said corporations. Also an enlarged staff at SEC, CFTC and the Fed stuffed with faithful and deserving Democrats selected by Chicago style patronage. I can't wait for the minions of Sheila Jackson Lee to be seated on the Board of _______ [you fill in the blank]. God help us.
The bill will punish businesses that are not unionized. That's the purpose of this bill.
We're in deep, deep economic trouble. And these liberals are going to friggin' sing and dance along, all the way, as they dance off a cliff.
Amen the democrat party is a atsunami of uncertainty.
Is this as unconstitutional as the healthcare bill...we need a recall.
Sorta wondering the same thing myself.
20 threads in two days?
Came out of it’s shell all of a sudden-like.
