[The top 5 Wall Street banks have had 901 lobbyist meetings with regulatory agencies since July 2010. The top 5 consumer protection groups? Only 116.]
When an industry gets nearly nine times as many meetings with regulators as people who oppose the industry, you can guarantee that regulators aren't considering both sides of the issue equally. The only hope is an organized, focused, and informed public that will be loud in calling for Wall Street reform.
