Congress passed financial reform legislation today but very few people know what’s in it:
“Even so, 38 percent of Americans have never heard of the overhaul and 33 percent have heard of it but know almost nothing about the legislation, according to an Ipsos Public Affairs online poll. Another 18 percent said they know “a little bit” about the measure.
The Ipsos poll found 3 percent are very familiar with the legislation, and 8 percent are somewhat familiar.”
Passing legislation Americans don’t understand or know about? That’s par for the 111th Congressional course.
