Yippee ! Wall Street is saved !
Senator Sherrod Brown’s (D OH) amendment 3733 on the Financial Stability Act bill, to break up the Big 6 Banks into smaller ones that couldn’t take down the entire nation’s economy if they failed, itself did not pass the vote in the Senate this evening, failing by a spectacular 61 noes to 33 yeas, with 6 senators too timid to approach the subject.
Not all bought and paid for yet:
YEAs — 33 votes
Coburn (R-OK)***** Republican
Shelby (R-AL)***** Republican
Specter (D-PA)***** ex Republican
