103. The RA's claim they were caught off guard...
so I'm not sure about "vociferous and constant objections". I think they assumed the Senate version would pass, or maybe they aren't as concerned about the 436(g) as we might expect, for reasons which will emerge.

Look, there are lots of moving parts here. You're OP is eloquent, but a good bit of a simplification. There will be many opportunities for this to be thrown out by the courts, for new protections to be amended to another bill or for the rating agencies to find a way around the change. Alternately, they could decide to simply jack up their fees enough to cover future liabilities and proceed with business as usual.

I hope the RA's will wake up tomorrow and see compliance as in their best interests and start to clean house. I won't be holding my breath while I wait, however.
