Glass-Steagall Goes Mainstream

There’s hope yet! The Glass-Steagall Act of 1933 was mentioned in a recent episode of HBO’s “Girls” series. The “Jessa” character said:

“What’s wrong with a Republican? It’s just the same as Democrat. They’re all dirt-bags. I mean, Bill Clinton is the one that got rid of our Glass-Steagall Act which is why our economy is in the toilet.”


The quote is at the 12:55 mark of show #12 “I Get Ideas” which is episode #2 of season #2 aired on January 20, 2013.
