"What [investors] don't want is 38 pages of legalese with the nugget that we really need to understand buried somewhere."

"Investors, we have found, do not expect perfection... What they do expect, and have every right to expect, is a fair, non-conflicted, and consistent scheme of weighing the investment risk they are about to take on."

--James Parkel, president, AARP

"The job [of reform] is not getting done... On issue after issue, the ball is being dropped."

--Damon Silvers, associate general counsel, AFL-CIO
