    Yawn. Their stress test is about as meaningless as a credit check to see if you qualify for a payday loan. Glass-Stegall is 100% more effective and requires banks to do banking, not gamble.

    In this day and age its gotta be downright embarrassing to be the one bank that did not pass that test.
