Again, History Repeats Itself, AgainTiger Beat:
House Republicans on Thursday united to pass a comprehensive bill that would dismantle the landmark banking regulations enacted after the 2008 financial crisis.
The legislation, approved without a single Democratic vote, represents the GOP’s opening salvo in the debate over easing the rules on the financial system, a move sparked by the election of President Donald Trump and Republican control of Congress…
The legislation proposes a significant unwinding of the 2010 Dodd-Frank Act, one of President Barack Obama’s signature achievements, which imposed new regulations across the financial system in the wake of the 2008 meltdown.
So it’s not enough to take away health insurance from tens of millions of Americans to pay for a tax cut, the GOP wants to destroy the economy again, and set free their corporate paymasters to do what they do best: wreck and loot everything.
