If you haven't read the document yet (and only one person has so don't feel bad), have a looksee at the clip above, produced by the White House, which explains the impetus for the bill ("the careless risk-taking by Wall Street had to be stopped"), makes some references to banks playing craps with other people's money, confidently states with the passing of Dodd-Frank, "you can rest a little easier knowing your home and family will be protected from the irresponsibility of others," and never once mentions Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Perhaps most genius, however, was having the whole thing narrated by the soothing voice of Kal Penn, though if I had my preference, would rather listen to in this.
