There may be no other issue in the U.S. Senate race in Massachusetts where the candidate's positions are more distinct.

“You really have two candidates, one who’s backed by Wall Street, and one who Wall Street… has disdain for,” said Mark Williams, a finance professor at Boston University. Maybe the best place to see this contrast is in a single piece of legislation on which both Sen. Scott Brown his Democratic challenger, Elizabeth Warren, left some pretty big fingerprints.

Do we regulate it with more regulations or do we try hard to enforce the existing laws and rules ?

We already fail at enforcing what we have so why do we need more rules and regs ?

Let's learn to enforce what we have before we take another bite.

Corzinne and Madoff.

False security by non-enforced existing rules is extremely dangerous to the small player like me.

Sarbanes-Oxley a result of ENRON , backed by 43 and the Dems , didn't fix Diddly- Shytt as Madoff and Corzinne proved.

Hire hot-shot youngsters from Harv'aaad , MIT or Cal Tech to do independent fraud research not on the SEC payroll but on the FBIs.

I'm all for enforcing rules and not just making noise about it.

You have a point, but when the fox is guarding the henhouse rules and regulations aren't exactly front and center.

I tend to agree with you except for death but most crime is convicted in Civil Court so the insurance companies pay up and not the financial firms and individuals because lawyers like it that way.
