CDO: Update 10..

April 22, 2010

Levin—which Levin—they ask.

The Democrat from Michigan, I tell them. The guy whose been tough on Obama re matters financial in the recent past. Okay, here’s a quote to put a handle on this fellow FYI:—

“Some of the people around the president needed to be given a push.”

Levin has also sought to rescind many of the laws that led to deregulation. Chief among them: the 2000 Commodity Futures Modernization Act, which exempted the credit-default swaps that brought AIG—and much of the financial system—to the brink of meltdown. Goldman’s role in AIG’s near-meltdown also has been a subject of various government inquiries.
