Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
A Stronger America Or A Path To Economic Disaster May 11, 2016
Bob Gibbs, R-OH
"With Dodd-Frank, Democrats deemed it necessary to punish small community banks with burdensome regulations they cannot afford to comply with. Dodd-Frank created a new, unaccountable bureaucracy called the CFPB, which is funded in a way that obscures its transparency and prevents Congress’ direct oversight of the agency. The lack of accountability like that seen with the CFPB and the heavy hand of agencies like the EPA and the IRS have become hallmarks of this administration."
Investor Clarity And Bank Parity Act April 26, 2016
Scott Garrett, R-NJ
"Well, this bill corrects a statutory error made in section 619 of Dodd-Frank, more commonly known as the Volcker Rule. The Volcker Rule limited the ability of bank holding companies or their affiliates to invest in hedge funds or private equity funds, collectively known as covered funds."
America’S Small Business Tax Relief Act Of 2015 April 18, 2016
John Cornyn, R-TX
"People are frightened because they have seen over the last 7 years—even though the President was stopped legislatively after the Affordable Care Act was passed and after Dodd-Frank was passed and then stopped by the electorate giving the Republicans a majority in the House and in 2014 a majority in Senate—that this President will not be stopped by the voters. That is the determination he made, and this Executive order is exhibit 1 because he said: I don’t care what the voters think. I don’t care what the American people think. I don’t care what the Constitution says. I don’t care that what Congress says should be the law of the land. I am going to do it the way I want to do it. Frankly, that is scary stuff when you are talking about the Commander in Chief, the leader of the free world, and the sort of power that goes along with that."
Raising Consolidated Assets Threshold Under Small Bank Holding Company Policy Statement April 14, 2016
David Schweikert, R-AZ
"Mr. Speaker, it is a fairly simple argument. If you want a competitive, robust financial market in our banking world, where institutions have the ability to survive because of the crushing costs that Dodd-Frank has created. This is a simple, simple bill. It is just a chip off the iceberg that is Dodd-Frank."
Financial Stability Oversight Council Reform Act April 14, 2016
Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-FL
"This bill represents another example of death by a thousand cuts from our friends on the other side of the aisle. It is another Republican attack on the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act."
