Roll back: Repealing the worst of Dodd-Frank
New Hampshire Union-Leader, by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 3/12/2018 5:17:57 AM

After the housing bubble burst, Democrats found themselves in control of Congress and the White House. So they crafted legislation they claimed would ensure this problem never happened again. In passing the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, Democrats created a whole new set of problems. By imposing a massive load of new regulations on banks, supposedly for the purpose of cracking down on risky behavior by those "too big to fail," Congress made life much harder on small and mid-sized banks. Contrary to popular belief, large corporations love regulations. They have the resources to keep lawyers and compliance departments on

It´s about time. The left caused the melt down in the first place. Remember Franklin Raines? Cook the books at Fanny & Freddie then retire with a $90mm performance bonus. How about Acorn and Barney Frank along with other nefarious characters blackmailing banks to accept sub-prime loans they would never take on voluntarily. "Everyone has the right to own a home"

Then after all that, the same people who caused the whole problem become the heroes to the rescue with Dodd Frank to make sure it wont happen again. Of course Dodd Frank only caused more damage.

Is there something wrong about this scenario?

Dodd-Frank is do do that can be hung on the neck of E. Warren. She is a staunch defender of something the dems created that is SO BAD that, in the time of Trump #Resistence, 17 dem Senators joined in unwinding it. With the CFPB leadership having been flushed, Warren doesn´t have much positive to talk about.

Well, she is a native American, right? Oh, but the tribes don´t think so and she refuses to take a public DNA Test (you can be pretty sure she flunked a secret one). Too bad.

Maybe she can go back to Harvard and set up her teepee there. They let her do it once and bragged about their "native American" faculty member. But she never took advantage of her unproven "heritage", right? Ooops.

Well, she certainly is in the mold of BO; a Leftist of dubious accomplishment, a big mouth, and enormous self regard. We sure need another BO, don´t we? We´ll just have to wait about about 20 years while we clean up the mess that he left behind. Meanwhile we´ll have a bunch of new things to think about; The Ethics in Justice Act, The Ethics in Intelligence Act, The Ethics in Tax Administration Act, The Ethics in Environmental Quality Administration Act, The Clintoon Ethics in Charitable Organizations Act, and probably a few more.

MAGA. Winning in so many ways.

I spend about 20 hours a year completing "Conflict Minerals" documents, which is also a part of this law, and I´ve got it easy. We don´t use any steel with conflict minerals in them, but if you do, you need an entire legal / compliance desk to work through the "stuff".

Sadly, most of the small local banks are gone, thanks to Dodd Frank.

My bank was an independent bank, bought out several years ago by another similar sized bank and now another bank in a neighboring state. I guess less than 100 branches count as a small bank nowadays.

Some friends of mine ran a small community bank in a nearby town. The cost of regulation under Dodd Frank was so high and the ability to "meet" the requirements -- although a very profitable bank and in an area that was booming -- led them to sell the bank to another bank about their size in a nearby metro area.

In the mean time, since QE benefits for the big five is waning, the parts of Dodd-Frank being "fixed" will spread the now 21 trillion dollar debt to the remaining smaller banks.

Every law the uni-Party Congress passes has corporate donor payback written all over it, starting with the failed attempt at Hillarycare to enrich "Big Pharma" in the Age of Bubba to every single thing done under Idi Obama. Payoffs to major industries, whether Goldman-Sachs, AIG, or Citibank the "Senator PAC Highway" isn´t far away from the legislation.

Dodd-Frank did one thing well. It gave the Kenyan fraud something with which to brag that he fixed a mess that he inherited from George w. Bush. Naturally he didn´t mention that the entire mess was created by democrats to allow blacks and hispanics to buy homes and then send them into foreclosure, thus turning the real estate industy on its back.

YES, #9. Sarbanes-Oxley has been an unconstitutional pain in my butt since 1985. Daniel Patrick Moynihan outdid himself with that massive screwing of independent, self-employed engineers and computer programmers. The extra work and record keeping by business is a crime in itself and the outright government-imposed theft is staggering.

We need to work on the medical industry next. The regulations and insurance companies are making primary care non viable and primary care physicians are leaving in droves, being "replaced" by walk in, Fast Pace clinics that are not doing primary care, but cherry picking the easy visits while the PCPs take on the more cumbersome geriatric, chronically ill, and difficult to manage patients at a loss.

Who poisoned Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia? Rex Tillerson thinks he knows. Tillerson, in one of his last statements as secretary of State, said that Novichok, the banned and highly poisonous nerve agent that hospitalized the Skripals on March 4, “clearly came from Russia.” “[T]his is a substance that is known to us and does not exist widely . . . It is only in the hands of a very, very limited number of parties,” he said on his return flight from Africa to Washington. British prime minister Theresa May thinks she knows, too.

The late pundit Robert Novak used to say that government officials can choose to be either “a source or a target.” In other words, leak information to reporters and you can count on flattering coverage and protection from them. An added bonus to leaking, as former Intelligence Director Jim Clapper discovered, is that the network to which you are leaking will turn you into a paid contributor. According to Congressman Jim Jordan, speaking to Fox News, “Clapper was actually the guy leaking information” to CNN about the presidential briefing on the Steele dossier that served as the pretext for the

The city of Los Angeles has been barred from enforcing the vast majority of its gang injunctions, which applied restrictions on gang associations that authorities have long credited with reducing crime. The ruling Thursday by U.S. District Judge Virginia A. Phillips, an appointee of former President Bill Clinton, agreed with the American Civil Liberties Union that the injunctions were likely to be unconstitutionally broad, and affect people who did not have adequate opportunity to challenge them in court. The gang injunctions are civil court orders that have applied to nearly 9,000 people and 79 gang sets since 2000, the Los Angeles Times

An illegal immigrant from Guatemala was sentenced to seven months in jail late last month for paying human smugglers to bring his 16-year-old brother-in-law into the U.S., in what officials say is one of the first cases to punish a relative for enticing a family member to make the dangerous trek north. Miguel Pacheco-Lopez admitted he paid $6,100 to “coyotes,” as the smugglers are called, to bring his wife’s brother into the U.S. last year. He expected the teen — identified in court documents by the initials S.M. — to pay the majority of the money back at 8 percent interest. The

Over the course of our national immigration debate -- speaking of which, has anyone noticed that the DACA deadline expired without Congressional action? -- border hawks are sometimes scolded for highlighting examples of violent crimes committed by illegal immigrants. I tend to agree that judging groups of people by their worst elements is an unfair practice that can cross into toxic demagoguery and scapegoating. It´s true, for example, that immigrants commit fewer crimes on a percentage basis than natural-born Americans, though the same truth doesn´t apply to illegal immigrants. But we shouldn´t airbrush tough truths, either. Part of the conversation

On March 18, the popular leader of Russia, Vladimir Putin, will be reelected to another six-year term as president. This is both a plain statement of fact and a complete falsehood. In American political parlance, this statement can be taken literally, but not seriously. The conundrum is due to the weakness of language and how we allow even the simplest words to be manipulated and distorted. That simple sentence about Putin and the Russian presidential election on March 18 is wrong in every possible way aside from the date and Putin’s name. Before we unpack the many fictions in that

The recommendation from the FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility is likely to add fuel to the political fire surrounding former deputy director Andrew McCabe, who abruptly stepped down from his post earlier this year but technically remained an FBI employee.

McCabe did not meet with Sessions, who was traveling Thursday, but with other senior officials, including Scott Schools, the most senior career attorney in the department. He arrived around 1 p.m. and departed four hours later. The decision could be consequential for McCabe´s financial future, as if he is fired, he could lose significant retirement benefits. The

Why do those who criticize Donald Trump for not being a "traditional" president fawn over President Obama not being a "traditional" post-presidential citizen? I would say Michelle and Barack Obama are back in the news, but they´ve never left the news since the 22nd Amendment mercifully exiled them from the Oval Office last year. When President Clinton took the oath of office in 1992, President George H.W. Bush went away. When President George W.
