Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Pro-Growth Budgeting Act Of 2013 April 4, 2014
Tim Walberg, R-MI
"Before Congress even considers passing another legislative overhaul like the Dodd-Frank or stimulus or the President’s health care law, let’s understand exactly how these thousand-page bills will impact our economy and potentially result in lost jobs and lost futures."
Protecting Volunteer Firefighters And Emergency Responders Act Of 2014 April 3, 2014
John Thune, R-SD
"In 2010 Congress enacted Dodd-Frank. It hasn’t fixed too big to fail, but in one respect it has succeeded in creating jobs. It is estimated that more than 30,000 employees will be required to file the paperwork associated with the $18 billion in Dodd-Frank compliance costs for our financial sector."
Infrastructure Development March 27, 2014
Peter DeFazio, D-OR
"If we fully implemented Dodd-Frank and reined in some of the commodities speculators, it wouldn’t be quite so volatile. But the point is, if we took a tiny fraction of the way they jack it up when you are driving to work every week and invested it, your friends, your neighbors would go to work, your commutes would be better, there would be less damage to your car, the country would be more efficient, and we would lose less jobs overseas."
Reducing Regulatory Burden March 13, 2014
James Lankford, R-OK
"Many banks in America now, after the Dodd-Frank regulations were passed just 5 years ago, when those regulations were passed—or that law was passed and the regulations are now promulgated, banks will tell you, all over the country—small banks, family-owned banks in small rural communities, medium-sized banks, banks that had nothing to do with the meltdown that happened in our economy in 2008 and 2009—these community banks will tell you many of them have a regulator sitting there full time now."
The Budget March 5, 2014
Orrin Hatch, R-UT
"We have seen the failed stimulus, ObamaCare, and initiatives such as Dodd-Frank, all of which have expanded the size and scope of the Federal Government without laying any foundation for economic growth."
