Can two senators end ‘too big to fail’?

Brown and Vitter may have created a blueprint for moving policy forward in a divided Congress.

Greg Russak‘s insight:

“The idea that two senators from opposite sides of the ideological spectrum can find common ground to attack a problem with a simple solution is novel in the Senate these days. If Brown and Vitter manage to end the subsidies to banks deemed “too big to fail,” they will have accomplished more than “merely” preventing the next financial crisis. They will have helped to create a blueprint for how to get things done in an era of partisan strife.That is a worthy goal all Americans should be grateful for.” – Barry Ritholtz, Washington Post
