A big part of framing the message here is that those millions of unemployed Americans don't really resonate with the public sentiment vis a vis financial reform to the extent that 107 poisoned consumers did in 1906 with regard to the pharmaceutical industry. Unfortunately establishing a causal relationship between poorly designed financial products and deficient regulatory paradigm leading to lost wages and increased mortality rates is less obvious, (master of understatement am I), than that of bad drugs/food is with the food and pharmaceutical industry. Somehow, that relationship needs to be defined or described, if only in qualitative terms to drive this point home in terms, that might appeal to the sensationalism the press finds so irresistible in the drama of the tea-bagging contingent.
