24/7 Wall St.: List Of Financial Reform Vote By Senator

Print Email

The vote on the “original bill to promote the financial stability of the United States by improving accountability and transparency in the financial system, to end “too big to fail”, to protect the American taxpayer by ending bailouts, to protect consumers from abusive financial services practices, and for other purposes,” (aka “Restoring American Financial Stability Act of 2010″, failed to be passed by a vote of 57 to 41 with two Senators not voting.

According to the CBO, the bill made financial sense, but too many Senators believed that it would over-regulate the financial industry and, perhaps, cut the flow of liquidity to enterprises and consumers. There was also debate on how the system should act in another financial crisis if large banks began to fail.

The CBO estimated that enacting the bill would increase revenues by $32.4 billion over the 2011-2015 period and by $75.4 billion over the 2011-2020 period and increase direct spending by $25.8 billion and $54.4 billion, respectively, over the same periods.

All Republican Senators voted against invoking closure and were joined by by Democrat–Ben Nelson of Nebraska.
