I'm so glad the Republican party has operated in lockstep to vote against Financial Reform. In recent years, our struggling banks have been the only salvation of the global economy, with their cautious and morally upright behaviour preventing us from falling into a cataclysmic financial crisis in 2008. Thank heavens the Republicans are unified to ensure that they can keep operating in exactly the same way. Shame on the Democrats for seeking to reign in these paragons of fiscal rectitude.
