President Barack Obama came to New York City today to take on Wall Street, urging the passage of legislation he says would curb the risky practices that pushed the U.S. economy into its worst recession in decades.  The president said that while he believes in the power of the free market, "a free market was never meant to be a free license to take whatever you can get, however you can get it." So tonight, we ask: Is President Obama doing enough to reform the financial industry? Or do you expect more business as usual, even if Main Street ultimately pays the price. Tell us what you think. Embedded below is Jake Tapper's "World News" report on Obama's tough talk.
