“You don’t build a movement with short-term tactics. You build a movement by understanding and change the way people think. The day everyone says in America, ‘You know what? There’s no missing page of Genesis that says there are separate tax rates for capital gains. There is nothing in Leviticus that says you may not regulate derivatives. This is not stuff that has to be. This is just a bunch of people who decided our public policy should be to redistribute all of the wealth in our society to a very small number of our people. It’s public policy. It’s not ancient. It’s not God, and we have the power to change it.’ That’s what will enable us to break through the log jams to re-regulate the Dodd-Frank process. That’s what will break through.” – New York’s state attorney general Eric Schneiderman, reminding progressives at the Take Back the American Dream conference in Washington, D.C. that the right’s efforts to fight financial regulation is far from divinely inspired.
