FINREG Put On Hold

Thank God for small miracles.

Yesterday's attempt by Senate Democrats to rush corrupt retiring Senator Chris Dodd's badly-written FINREG bill to debate and subsequent passage failed, 57-41.

Senate Republican Minority Leader Mitch McConnell succeeded in keeping his party together, and even added Democrat Ben Nelson, in opposition to this mistaken attempt to pass flawed legislation before Congress' own appointed outside panel delivers its verdict on what happened in the financial sector to cause the market crisis of two years ago.

Sometimes, it seems, the right thing does happen in politics. Even in the Senate.
