Republicans and Deregulation

To some audiences McCain has claimed to have made an effort to strengthen the regualtion of the financial industry.  This is disingenuous, as he and his party are four square behind removing constraints on the financial community and the business world in general.  I have discussed his meager gestures toward regulating business.  His overwhelming record in favor of deregulation is much discussed elsewhere.  It is hard to imagine a record more clearly favoring abolishing regulatory constraints.  Here is a video compilation of a few recent deregulation statements by McCain and speakers at the Republican convention.
