Mark Warner on Financial Reform Legislation: “This should not be a partisan issue”

“I’d love to hear from Senator McConnell and some of the others specifics, not just general attacks…”

“I’m still relatively new to this job, and I didn’t get the memo yet that we weren’t actually supposed to get stuff done in a bipartisan way…this should not be a partisan bill.”

“We need to set financial rules of the road for the next 50-60 years.  We had pretty good rules of the road that were set in the ’30s that lasted us 80 years; I’d love to see a bill that would put the next 80 years rules in place.”

    Mark Warner is building himself quite a resume as a voice of sense in the craziness that is partisan Washington. He is absolutely correct. If McConnell and the rest of the GOP want to be against the Dodd bill, then they should have a detailed alternative available. Lacking that, they are playing with fire, now that the Goldman Sachs mess has surfaced.

    but is the current Financial Reform bill Warner and Corker’s legislation or is it just modeled after their work?
