62. If health care wasn't taken on now
It would have never gotten through.

Financial regulation is not going to happen. Business is complaining about Sarbanes-Oxley as it is. Even if something is passed, it will be repealed.

The financial crisis has not meant a regulation of financial institutions but a deregulation of them. The Glass-Steagall Act of 1933 has been completely eradicated, beyond what they tried to do in 1999.
