Senators Bob Corker (R-TN) and Mark Warner (D-VA) both sit on the Senate Banking Committee and I like to listen to these guys because they both used to be businessmen before they came to the Senate. Warner made a fortune intech venture capitaland Corker in construction. They get it. They know what it means to fight for success, fail here and then, then climb higher and fight for more. That's called Capitalism.
They alsohave crossedthe political barbed wire separating Republicans and Democrats lately that prevents them from working together for the good of the rest of us.
They toiled recently to get a solid bill on financial reform that was close to completion when suddenly Senator Chris Dodd of CT presented his own plan yesterday.
But don't count these two out: they spoke together exclusively on Fox Business today about what they think of Dodd's plan and whether it will pass. You need to listen to this because it absolutely will affect you, your money and this nation's future: I don't know about you but I never againwant to bail out companies that took ridiculous risks, lost and then expected US to save their you-know-whats.
No thanks. How about you?
