"Some causes are more easily sloganized than others. 'Let’s Re-deregulate Derivatives' has a certain rhythm, but it doesn’t sell well politically. So the conservative ideologues who want to roll back the Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, and return to a time when there were fewer regulations to restrain the reckless behavior of the financial-services industry, avoid saying so directly." [editor's note: Whether or not you're among the libertarians who value Barney's positives (anti-war, pro civil liberties), this is a worthwhile analysis on the economic front - SAT] (07/30/11)
