12-12-14  former Rep, Barney Frank (D-Mass.), the (anti-Wall Street derivative-trade-hook-US-taxpayer) law’s namesake, worries “this (House passage of Wall St. rider) is a road map for stealth unwinding of financial reform.”

Rep. John Lewis of Georgia, who referenced his participation in the March on Washington 50 years ago. “I wanted to know [then] which side the federal government was on,” said Lewis. “I wanted to know 50 years later which side is the Democratic caucus on? Is it on the side of the people or Wall Street and the big banks?”  http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2014/12/12/crominbus-passes-but-no-one-wins.html

12-13-14  outgoing Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley, tweeted that Congress shouldn’t be repealing financial industry regulations “and letting Wall Street play with taxpayer money.”  http://www.leadertelegram.com/news/daily_updates/article_55dc980a-8290-11e4-920a-fb066831d952.html

In this case, Dimon successfully lobbied members of the US House to repeal an important part of the Dodd-Frank financial reform act, which was passed in 2010 to protect Americans from losing their homes and savings in another financial crisis. The provision was buried in the $1.1tn budget bill, where bank lobbyists and their soulmates in Congress mistakenly thought no one would find it.…Banks also make a lot of money on (derivatives) swaps, at times more than $40bn a year – not because the banks are brilliant sherpas to the market but because banks are federally insured if they lose customer deposits for any reason.  http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2014/dec/13/playing-with-other-peoples-money-will-jamie-dimon-get-his-way-again
