House GOP backs bill to undo much of Dodd-Frank

U.S. Congressman Mac Thornberry (R-Clarendon) voted today in support of H.R 10, the "Financial CHOICE Act," that passed by a vote of 233-186.

While across Capitol Hill on Thursday the Senate was drawing attention for its hearing with James Comey, the fired Federal Bureau of Investigation director, the House passed a bill to roll back some of the strongest Wall Street regulations from the financial crisis.

"The bill even specifically exempts payday and vehicle title lenders - notorious for springing devastating debt traps for their already vulnerable customers - from any regulation", added Yana Miles, senior legislative counsel for the Center for Responsible Lending.

With the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director openly calling the president a lawless liar, it would be easy for liberals to forget to save some contempt for the rest of the Republican Party. "They are setting the stage for Wall Street to run amok and cause another financial crisis", Waters said in a statement on Thursday. The law created a myriad of regulatory agencies with vague rules that have been fleshed out by unelected regulators, which during the Obama era tended to be hostile to private business. This database lets the agency identify patterns of abuse and allows the public to learn more information about companies - so limiting its use is risky for consumers. With the bill's passage, the fight for regulatory reform now shifts to the Senate.

"We will replace bailout with bankruptcy".

Republicans argue that regulations under Dodd-Frank have throttled the banking industry and made it hard for small business and individuals to receive loans. "Do not let them do it again". "What we have actually seen since 2014, is a steady but modest increase in lending, including to communities of color".

According to the House Committee on Financial Services, we lose one community bank or credit union per day. It would no longer be able to write major rules regulating consumer financial companies, such as debt collectors, without getting approval from Congress. "It will destroy our only consumer financial protection agency", Lynch said.

The vote was along party lines except for one Republican, Rep. Walter Jones of North Carolina, who voted against the bill. The Dodd-Frank provision championed by former Federal Reserve Chairman Paul Volcker is meant to keep banks from taking gambles that could lead to a government bailout.
