This news release just hit my Inbox. Thoughts?

BOXER PUSHES AMENDMENT TO ENSURE NO TAXPAYER FUNDS WILL BE USED TO BAIL OUT WALL STREET

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA) today wrote Senate Banking Committee Chairman Chris Dodd (D-CT) to urge his support for an amendment she intends to offer to Wall Street Reform legislation that would ensure that no taxpayer funds will be used to bail out financial institutions.

In the letter, Senator Boxer wrote that lawmakers from both parties agree that no taxpayer funds should be used to bail out financial institutions. Her amendment would eliminate any doubt on the subject.
Senator Boxer also wrote that she is encouraged that Chairman Dodd is considering adding such language to the Wall Street Reform bill.

  • Too little, too late, I'm thinking.


    Why give a chit about the taxpayer on her way out the door?


    False affection, that's what it is.

  • My thought as well, Anon 3:31. I'm pretty certain Tom Campbell will get the seat.

  • Obama is going to go stump for her. That should seal her fate as the loser. His track record is pretty poor.

  • Perfect. See it doesn't matter. The fact that she is a Democrat is all the information you guys need to not support this.

    You must be new around here. "We" were squealing our lungs out when the first round of bailouts went through. We didn't want them then or in the future. If a company is irresponsible it deserves to fail.

    Boxer is just singing a new tune because her seat is in serious jeopardy. It won't make any difference to the voters though, we already know how the song ends.

  • So what is more important, the legislation itself or who is presenting the legislation?
    As far as these companies failing. Yes I feel like that too at times. Then again, I have heard stories about the Depression of the 30s, seen documentaries about it etc.. Not so sure I want to know exactly what that was like by living it. So far it looks like the bailouts have been successful at preventing that. Time will tell.
