"On the Death of Brown-Kaufman" [Death of No "Too Big to Fail" Banks] | The American Prospect


Tom Usher wrote or added | A quick overview of Tim Fernholz's view of where financial reform stands in the U.S. Senate:

"Possible amendments that will get higher levels of support than B-K include the Merkley-Levin amendment to impose a real Volcker rule, Jack Reed's effort to make the Consumer Financial Protection Agency truly independent, an amendment from Al Franken to strengthen ratings-agency regulation, and the McCain-Cantwell amendment to reimpose the separation between commercial and investment banks. I'd include the Sanders amendment for a Fed audit, but now that a compromise has given it support from the White House and Congressional leadership, I'd say it's set to pass easily."
