I guess Bill Clinton should not have signed the bill which de regulated the banks so we have to now re regulate them. Democrat Republican, they all lie.

True. Clinton had to bend too much to get anything through Newt's "contract on America" Congress. He swhould have told Newt to 'shove it.' Just as ObM must tell Bohner 'shove it.'

You presume that obama's dodd frank bill did the same thing as what clinton did away with. It does not and in face sets up yet another bail out of the bankers.

Dodd–Frank did away with “too big to fail,” but they did it by simply renaming the concept, now it is “systemically important” for the purposes of making bailouts a permanent fixture of federal fiscal policy.)
