Bankster alert: Tom Harkin introduces Glass-Steagall bill in Senate

I think I would be able to sleep at night if Glass-Steagall were law again.
Sen. Tom Harkin on Thursday introduced S. 985, which would rebuild the wall that had once separated commercial banking from brokerage and investment speculation. The Iowa Democrat’s bill came on the 80th anniversary of the original 1933 Glass Steagall Act.

The text of S.985 was not posted on the Senate website as of Friday afternoon, but it is believed to resemble HR 129, introduced by Reps. Marcy Kaptur, D-Ohio, and Walter Jones, R-N.C. Their measure has 62 bipartisan sponsors in the House.
But, the quote from Lyndon LaRouche?  Just a little creepy.
