You know and I know that, although not every government regulation is good, a lot of them are vitally necessary to protect the average citizen, and that the Republicans would LOVE to gut every single one of them and make it impossible for government to do anything to protect people from corporate greed.

Enter the Regulatory Accountability Act, which has already passed the House and is up in the Senate.  It would make it virtually impossible for any new regulation to rein in Wall Street to be passed.  If you would like to contact your Senators to urge them to vote against it, Americans for Financial Reform has an email ready for you to customize and send.  It's got some background information and the email itself ready to go.  You can just enter your name and address (to get it to the right Senator), or you can customize the letter.  Me, I added some stuff about good regulations being necessary to prevent another financial meltdown such as we had in 2008 and how most regulations protect the average American citizen.

...I know you meant "rein in Wall Street", that's one of the most common errors, but I can't help but picture one of the Wall Streeters garbed up like King George III, scepter and all, benevolently extending his protection to his fellow Wall Streeters and sending battalions after Main Streeters...

Thanks for the link. I do now.
