While I won't address the specific arguments made about the merits or
lack thereof in the bill. I will address the opinion piece that is based
on jibberish. Sorry for being so blunt, but it is true. The bill that
was passed by the house and the senate is H.R.4173 also referred to as
the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. The
article that you sent referred to a bill that had 2,300 pages. The
author was either looking at the wrong bill or had three copies of the
right one. Here is a link to the actual bill. http://frwebgate.access.gpo.gov/cgi-bin ... cong_bills
It is quite clear that the bill in question has 848 pages. When I read
on into the opinion piece I recognized that the points being made were
not based on reality. The author, Kimberley A Strassel, was as far as I
can tell either delusional or reading a completely different piece of
legislation to the act that was passed by the house and senate.
Not sure what's up here, but all news reports have referred to the bill as being 2300 pages.
