Wall Street corruption and Senate bill S.2155

Bernie Sanders famously made his filibuster speech on December 10 2010 on financial reform, and has tirelessly pursued the subject ever since. His inability to carry the DNC primary against Clinton was clearly due to the power of the banks. Here he is again fighting against the proposed Senate bill S.2155 watering down the 2010 Dodd-Frank Act and called “The Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief and Consumer Protection Act”. This is likely to pass with a majority, giving the top Wall Street banks, who are serial offenders on many different levels, and a serious danger to the public, new immunities.
