Biden: Romney's Wall Street will 'put y'all back in chains'

(CNN) – Vice President Joe Biden leveled a heavy charge at Mitt Romney on Tuesday, arguing the presumptive GOP nominee's proposed policies on Wall Street reform would be detrimental for Americans.

Romney: GOP has 'misspoken' on regulation

(CNN) – Speaking on foreign turf, Mitt Romney offered some criticism of his own party on Thursday, saying the GOP sometimes uses the wrong phrasing when it comes to regulation reform.

"We have in our party, I think, on occasion misspoken by just saying we're for deregulation–to some that means we want to get rid of all regulation. That's not true," Romney said at a fundraiser in London, according to pool reports.

CNN exclusive: Congressional insider trading ban might not apply to families

Washington (CNN) – It was a rare show of bipartisanship - President Barack Obama, flanked by Democrats and Republicans in April, signing into law a bill that would ban insider trading on Capitol Hill. The measure, known as the STOCK Act, had passed the House and Senate in warp speed.

"The powerful shouldn't get to create one set of rules for themselves and another set of rules for everybody else," the president said at the time.

Wall Street ditches Obama, backs Romney

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) – Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned - but what about a Wall Street titan?

Deep-pocketed financiers have abandoned President Obama and are flocking to Mitt Romney in droves, providing more donations to his campaign than any other industry except retired workers. (And that's not really an industry.)

Group's new ad pegs Obama to Wall Street

(CNN) – A conservative non-profit will spend $3.4 million to tie President Barack Obama to the financial industry in a minute-long television ad airing in seven general election battlegrounds, the group said Monday.

American Future Fund, which previously hit Obama for his ties to bankrupt solar energy firm Solyndra and the spending scandal at the General Services Administration, goes after the president in the new spot for claiming to be a Wall Street reformer while taking massive contributions from financial sector employees.

Crowley: JP Morgan shakes up Wall Street and Capitol Hill

Washington (CNN) - JPMorgan Chase announced last week that it lost $2 billion as the result of some complicated hedge fund trading, which according to its top executive is apparently not as bad as it sounds.

"This is a stupid thing we should never have done, but we are still going to earn a lot of money this quarter. It's not like this company is jeopardized - we hurt ourselves and our credibility, yes, and we've got to fully expect that and pay the price for that," CEO Jamie Dimon said on NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday.
