I'm researching to see if we can find the Bill #


The following is from:  http://housingdoom.com/2009/03/31/bill-maloni-how-i-would-remake-federal-financial-regulation/

Bill Maloni: How I would Remake Federal Financial Regulation
By John M.
Put all of the authority in one institution, under one person–the Fed Chairman–and let the Federal Reserve sort out the regulatory pieces over banks, thrifts, insurance companies. investment banks, holding companies, hedge funds. The Fed can have “managing directors” and oversight units for those each industries all reporting to the Board of Governors or a Board governor for each of them, with his/her own jurisdiction. But, all financial services actions get coordinated by that Board.

Egad! he’s serious …

If we have to do this ourselves -- while Congress persons languish in their status -- we may as well not have a Congress.

We have to read the entire HR 2454.  In fact, we need to be reading all the Bills -- it's a given anyway, the way things are going.

Then, it will be up to us to inform our Congress persons on what they should be doing.  It used to be than an Act of Congress was a monumental undertaking that took lots of thought, debate, refinement and time in accomplishing.

It used to be that Congress would present these ideas in public for public approval.  Now -- they're "Raced Through."  This race-through approach should be stopped dead in its tracks.  Where's the Bill prohibiting race-through tactics & prosecuting those who indulge in it's implementation?

That's the Bill that needs to be "raced-through" at lightening speed.  These last few Congresses have made a mockery of our legislative sytem, treating it the way they do.
