There’s just something so unbelievable about the following two paragraphs:

At a hearing this month, Senate Banking Committee Chairman Christopher J. Dodd (D-Conn.), who has had a generally warm relationship with the financial community, lashed out at the “refusal of large firms to work constructively with Congress.”

“Too many people in the industry have decided to invest in an army of lobbyists, whose only mission is to kill the common-sense financial reforms that we are working so hard up here to try to achieve,” Dodd said.

You’d think he wasn’t, I dunno, a powerful and influential Senator in charge of … what was it again? Oh, yes, REGULATING BANKING.
