    FOXBusiness reported on Monday that Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell recently called on about 25 Wall Street executives, many of them hedge fund managers, to hear their complaints about proposals for regulating the financial industry.

    With him was Sen. John Cornyn of Texas, chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, which raises campaign money for Republican candidates for Senate.

    What excuse is the right going to use for not strengthening regulation, imposition of freedom? Using freedom as their first line of defense; making it their whore.
  5. Democrats like to ignore the fact that Wall Street contributed more to Obama than McCain and heavily funds the democrat party.
