Is that true?

Well, the chief sponsor of the bill Obama supports - Chris Dodd - said:

Breaking up the big banks, appointing real regulators, decreasing leverage, separating traditional banking from speculation, and reining in derivatives will stop the next crisis from coming.

The proposed financial reform legislation won't.

  3. If there has been no complete audit of the federal reserve then how can it be true that..."Indeed, the IMF has already performed a complete audit of the whole US financial system"? Please explain
