GOP again blocks Wall Street reform debate

Senate Democrats failed Tuesday – for the second time in two days – to muster the 60 votes needed to start debating Wall Street reform.

The official vote was 57-41 in favor of moving forward with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., switching his vote from "yes" to "no," in a procedural move that allows him, under the Senate rules, to bring the bill up again as early as Wednesday for another vote.

    So... why am I not surprised? The Part of No has also become the Party In the Pocket. You needn't ask whose pocket.

    I make my case why does deregulation work from D.C. and these are my ideas:

    Phase out the Transportation Security Admin and the dhs altogether and privatize/allow private screening companies for airports. Phase out the DHS to focus only on immigration and customs/border enforcement and security
    Repeal the Internal Rev. Service and its existing income tax laws to welcome flat taxes or a fair tax-similar mode to fund our needs without too much penalties or bureaucracy
    simplify immigration laws to focus on which ones are allowed entry as immigrant/non-immigrants
    Deregulate money.investment,banking,real estate and lending to allow more competitiveness and choices for our consumers

    With those ideas on mind, nobody would make our nation more secure,more stable and more competent at global scale than our lawmakers,uh?

    By the way, I strongly support Israel's right to defend itself no matter the cost from the terror-backing Iranian dictatorship.
