America’s voters want effective regulation of Wall Street

The Hill reports:

An overwhelming majority of voters polled want oversight of financial firms and reforms to take effect as soon as possible, including the creation of a consumer protection bureau.

After hearing arguments from both sides of the debate, 66 percent of voters want Wall Street to be held accountable and prevented from repeating the same actions, according to a poll conducted by Lake Research Partners, sponsored by AARP, the Center for Responsible Lending and Americans for Financial Reform.

Only 23 percent agree with an opposing statement that Wall Street reform kills jobs and creates excessive government regulation and bureaucracy that could hamper the nation’s economic recovery.
