Hey, if the government's reaction had been.... "Well I guess maybe we went too far changing a system that seemed pretty stable for 70 years, let's reverse course a bit and reenact some of those protections" I could see where you were coming from.
Instead we got the Dawd Fwank Fwiends of Angewo package that didn't really solve anything
(except of course give us yet another new unaccountable federal regulatory army)
The Government uses virtually every opportunity to expand its reach. Even in cases where it was 100% complicit in the problem to begin with.
