I still don't think that it has been explained properly that an actual crisis is at hand. I want to see numbers and graphs and stuff.
That aside, I would like to see the media explain how Sen. Boehner and the conservative House Republican's big plan was to get rid of capital gains tax, more deregulation, temporary tax breaks and relaxation of other rules, and for a federally funded insurance program to bail out less-solvent institutions to encourage investors. (This would insure that Wall Street investors would net all of the possible profits and assume none of the risk. Sound familiar?)
The government oversight, compensation limits for executives and provisions for taxpayers to share in any profits from the sale of distressed assets were what the Democrats asked for, despite the quotes from the media.
