Securities and Exchange Commissioner Daniel Gallagher blasted the Dodd-Frank financial reform bill in a speech to the United States Chamber of Commerce Wednesday afternoon.
“It’s a perfect example of not letting a good crisis go to waste,” Gallagher said. The president signed Dodd-Frank on July 21, 2010. Democrats Sen. Chris Dodd (Conn.) and Rep. Barney Frank (Mass.) have since retired from Congress.
My, what a surprise! Aren’t you surprised? I’m sure surprised.
“The act is a model of the new paradigm of legislation,” he said. “A good concept, in this case regulatory reform, overwhelmed by a grab bag of wish list items.”
Sounds like most legislation these days.
