I have to disagree with you Blake. I believe that deregulation is the worst thing possible for this situation. In fact, it was Clinton's deregulation of the banks that contributed to this mess. I believe we need to regulate banks much much much more.
(I'm not a dem or a republican. Just someone trying to figure this whole mess out)
(And as for the free market part, I agree somewhat...How do you expect corporations to pay for pollution without regulation?)
