Former Delaware Senator Ted Kaufman on Wall Street reform

Listen

Guest: Ted Kaufman

The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act was passed almost three years ago as an attempt to reign in the big banks and the risky behaviors that led to the 2008 financial crash. But many people say that little has changed on Wall Street since the collapse, thanks in part to the billions spent on financial industry lobbyists. This infuriates former Delaware Senator TED KAUFMAN who fought for tougher regulations, more transparency and accountability when he served in Congress from 2009-2010 and chaired the Congressional Oversight Committee.  Senator Kaufman comes in to talk to Marty about his frustrations with financial reform and how he would like to rewrite the rules on Wall Street.
