It's Wall Street Reform Day! As you might expect, Democratic Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords is cheering the signing of the Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, while her GOP opponents don't like it one bit.
You can find details in this week's Skinny column.
BTW, Republican candidate Jay Quick's comments didn't make it into the print edition, but here's what he had to say via e-mail on the legislation:
It's ironic that Congress is suddenly trying to reverse the 20 years of Congressional de-regulation that caused the financial melt down in the first place but we can be confident that Wall Street is already figuring ways to get around the new regulations and it won't be long before the investment bankers convince Congress that the new regulations are too tough. It will be business as usual withing a couple of years.
Jonathan Paton, Jesse Kelly and Brian Miller will be onstage from 6 to 8 p.m., Wednesday, July 21, at Desert Christian School, 7525 E. Speedway Blvd.
