The quote of the day comes from Tam regarding the authors of the Dodd–Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.
Christopher Dodd and Barney Frank, a pair of career tax leeches on the cursus dishonorum, neither of whom has soiled their patrician hands with an honest day’s work in their life, are going to bring sense to financial markets and look out for the well-being of the little guy? Yeah, right.
And I think she is unfortunately correct that the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau will eventually have its own SWAT team. It just won’t have a director if Obama continues to nominate hyper-partisan types and the Senate maintains a backbone.
