Views on HR 1151

I have to say this is my happiest legislative day, to see something of this nature come to fruition so quickly.
-Rep. Paul Kanjorski
Twenty months ago I suggested you kick ass and take names, and you did.
Look at all the money that was spent; it all comes out of the consumers' pockets. And for what? What was gained here? Not one member was helped. I hate to see the waste the bankers have forced.
This was not a glorious day for banking. I'll be the first to say we were thoroughly out-lobbied.
