What do Tea Party people think of regulating banks and financial institutions?

Are they against regulation like the Libertarians? Do they want to regulate derivatives, make a wall between investment and non-investment banking, break up large banks, put limits on interest rates, like we had before Reagan?

    If a Democrat proposes regulation, they're against it because its communist and whatnot.

    If a Republican proposes it, they're for it because Glenn Beck and Fox News will tell them so.

    Im not a supporter. But Im AGAINST government regulations OF ANY KIND! Let the banks regulate and watch themselves. As well as the auto industry, housing and other markets. Government red tape just makes things worse.

    It was the government/politicians who ruined the bank/housing institution last summer thru the 'Community Reinvestment Act' set up by Jimmy Carter. Did you know politicians got $$$$$$ of compaign funds from Fannie/Freddie?

    Including the CLODS who want more of the same TODAY?!

    They don't give a hoot about regulation, the banks or health care.

    The Tea Party focus is just on beating President Obama down, honestly, dishonestly, by innuendo or insult. It's really disgusting. Being negative is the easiest damn thing in the world. That's all you're seeing.

    Governor Palin, by the way, is a moron.

    Libertarians are kind of like Tea Partiers with brains. It seems to me the baggers should be against government regulation of almost any kind, but it makes no sense for them to be so solidly on the side of people who basically stole from the American people and got filthy rich by doing so.

    Let them check with their leaders (do they have any?) and get back to you.
