Hey, remember when everybody was defending the insurance-company-handout health care bill by saying that the financial reform bill will be the one where Dems really get to be tough?
Looks like that was bullshit too. Bank stocks are rising at the passage of the financial reform bill, because it don't reform sweet fuck-all.
Just goes to show: never, ever listen to a Dem or a Dem apologist saying "if we compromise now, we'll get more later." They will just keep saying it forever. "Later" will never, ever come.
(Well, a kind of "later" will come. The kind where the Republicans take the country over again because at least their policy incompetence isn't matched by political incompetence. But that's not exactly the "later" they were talking about.)
