The Fight for Financial Reform


financeHour 1

Now that the health care bill has passed, President Obama and Senate Democrats have turned their attention to financial reform. The Democratic bill to overhaul the financial industry passed the Senate Banking Committee is now on the Senate floor. This hour, we’ll talk about the proposed legislation – how it affects big banks and consumers. Our guests are Damon Silvers, Policy Director for the AFL-CIO and Congressional Oversight Panel member, and Peter Goodman, national economic correspondent for the New York Times.
