If you want to get a sense of perspective of the stakes surrounding the financial reforms being considered and proposed in Washington, consider this -

"Since 1990, investment firms and their staff have given a staggering $683 billion to federal election campaigns. While Democrats have done better in recent elections, this industry is not partisan: Over two decades the donations have split 51% to Democrats, 48% to Republicans. The GOP got a majority of the money from 1996 through 2004."

The Wall Street Journal story from which this quote comes is linked below.
