Maria Cantwell

A Righteous Anger: Demanding Wall Street Accountability

by: Michael Conrad

Ratigan reviews Frontline's Warning, labels Wall Street as Legalized Gambling

by: jamess

Fri Oct 23, 2009 at 21:12:49 PM EST

If you missed Dylan Ratigan's interview today with Senator Maria Cantwell (D-WA) -- well you missed a lot!

They spell out in stark relief the very REAL need for serious Wall Street Regulation -- NOW!   (and still!)

Or we risk a repeat of the same Bubble-driven collapse of Trillion Dollar Derivative Bets, that occur in the dark, beyond the reach -- or even the Watch -- of any Govt Regulator, or even the Public scrutinity.

Nothing has changed, they can STILL Gamble Trillions in Derivatives, and let US the Taxpayers pick up the Tab, whenever their Bets GO Bad!

Chances are, these good Senators, while they hear us, have some other Constituents, always on their minds.
