GOVERNMENT VS. WALL ST.: Feds Feeling Oats Without Strong GOP, Tea Party Opposition (Craig R. Smith is in PDT)
Amidst the restlessness of the Tea Party movement, completely freaked out and angry about the rapid growth of government and its intrusion into the private sector, one area where Washington liberals may see less pushback from the American electorate is in the area of financial reform. Especially now.
Already mobilized in large part for being on the hook in recent bank bailout deals and corporate welfare schemes, Main Street taxpayers are now irate over hearing that an investment fraud maneuver cooked up by banking giant Goldman Sachs may be the catalyst responsible for the 2008 economic collapse in the first place—this according to a lawsuit recently filed against Goldman by the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC).
Even the Republicans are easing off the pressure to oppose any Congressional bill on the subject of financial reform. Although, it is more of a sign they want to change, not stonewall, the financial overhaul package put together in March.
Nonetheless, here’s the bittersweet notion put before the American people: Financial reform? Absolutely. But under the leadership of the Obama-Reid-Pelosi machine? That’s frightening—particularly given their obnoxious push into the private sector already. After healthcare, there’s no telling how far they may try to go if, this time around, they don’t have to climb over the Tea Partiers to sneak in some radical agenda.
So, how far is too far? What should Congress realistically do to reel in the Wall Street nonsense so threatening to our nation’s economic stability, without drifting too far into socializing the financial sector and completely choking our free market? And, in the meantime, how does the SEC v. Goldman case stand to impact our extremely fragile recovery?
