WASHINGTON-- Monday evening, Republicans in the U.S. Senate voted against Sen. Chris Dodd's American Financial Stability Act
, which seeks to reform regulation of the financial sector. It was only one round. There are many to come. Democrats only need one crossover to move the bill forward and the GOP line on the bill has already evolved, as Republican spin artist Frank Luntz's "bank bailout" false talking point
has failed to winover Americans, who overwhelmingly back reform. Bonus-loving Goldman Sachs has run out of sympathy on struggling Main Street.
