Overwhelming Force of Regulation

Back in January, I linked to a graph from the American, showing just how much of a colossus the Healthcare bill was in comparison to previous landmarks in legislation. 

Well, the time has come for another look at the heavyweight Financial bill, and its comparison. 
Again, from the American Enterprise Blog:

If the Glass-Steagall Act was a dog, and the Gramm-Leach Bliley Act was a horse, the Dodd-Frank bill that just passed is a steroid chewing, Hulk-Gamma-Radiation, iron pumping monstrosity of a Blue Whale
Heck, even if you added the previous overhauls together, it is only 1/7th the size of this Dodd-Frank bill.
