51. Had federal oversight been increased (against the wishes of New York politicians)...
and had foolish deregulations policies been rejected- much of the current financial meltdown wouldn't have happened.

So what's your point? :shrug:

"That said, I've also never opposed the loans to Detroit to help the auto industry become more competitive."

So you support $25 billion in loans to Detroit, but $700 billion as a gift to Wall Street?

Like I said, Depakid hasn't been as excited about *that*...
