Gordon Harold Smith: Supports bailout as BETTER regulation, not MORE regulation

Merkley reiterated his opposition to the $700 billion bailout even after the rebound on Wall Street Monday, saying he wanted to see more oversight over federal regulatory branches. “This bill was poorly done,” he said.

Smith said he wasn’t for either more or less regulation, but better regulation in general and said he supported the bailout also because it included a four-year reauthorization of the county payments program.
