In case you didn't pick up on it, what happens on Wall Street effects the value of your paycheck, the national debt, the price of groceries, and the price of energy. What is touted as the "Free Market" could someday drain your bank account because of poor speculation on Wall Street and the only way to insure you don't pay the cost with your rent money is for the government to write Wall Street a check to cover what they gambled and lost. This is what they are talking about when they say no regulation. This translates into, "I want to make speculative trades using the paychecks of working class folks whether you like it or not and if you say otherwise, you're a socialist".
