Heritage Foundation Repeats Debunked Claims On Wall Street Reform

The Heritage Foundation has published a so-called list of "fatal flaws" in the financial regulatory bill being considered in the Senate.  Unfortunately, by repeating claims that have been already been thoroughly debunked, it is the Heritage Foundation's analysis that is actually flawed.  Rather than dealing with the facts, the Heritage Foundation resorts to mimicking conservative wordsmith Frank Luntz, who advised conservative many months ago to label financial reform as a giveaway to Wall Street.

Heritage Foundation Repeats Debunked "Permanent Bailout" Lie

In a blog post on April 20, 2010, the conservative Heritage Foundation repeated the Frank Luntz-inspired lies that Wall Street reform would create a permanent bailout fund and reward creditors of the failed firms. In reality, the bill does NOT reward or bailout firms, but safely dismantles "any failed financial company" that threatens the stability of the entire economy.  The costs of dissolving these companies are paid NOT by taxpayers, but by fees levied on financial companies.  Additionally, the bill specifically states a failed firm's creditors shall "bear losses."

Heritage Foundation Attacks Obama For Embracing An Idea It Proposed

On March 31, 2010, the conservative Heritage Foundation attacked President Obama's health care plan for requiring individuals to purchase insurance. In 2003, however, a Heritage Foundation Vice President proposed that very idea while testifying in front of Congress.  Additionally, their claim that mandates are "unprecedented" also misses the mark. None other than George Washington signed the Militia Act of 1792, which required a significant percentage of the population to own guns.
