88. Maybe Luntz coaches Professor Elizabeth Warren, too. And Bill Moyers and his other guests.
A bill of this kind was supposedly Elizabeth Warren's idea, but she is quite critical of what Dodd produced. She's been on Charlie Rose and other shows, too

Both Bill Moyers Journal and Mother Jones have series dealing with the bill and the whole financial mess in Washington. Both are very instructive. I recommend both highly.

The bill will actually affect you in real life. What gets posted on DU won't.
