Looks like financial reform legislation will be adopted in Congress after the GOP dropped its stupidly pro-banker and politically-suicidal filibuster.
Strategically and substantively - - a big win for the public and the White House, too.
This comes on the heels of the student loan reform act - - a big plus, and also the health care bill, which has already had a positive impact nationally, as insurance companies have begun to stop canceling insureds with certain major illnesses.
More benefits will kick in this year.
So the Dems have momentum, and progressives need to get cracking on other initiatives - - namely an energy bill.
