The Dodd-Frank Act, meant to rein in corporate excesses, has been a failure, according to the House Financial Services Committee

    This might be the only intelligent thing a Republican and especially Hensarling has said in the last few years. I'm pulling for them on this one.

    Thank God someone finally got some sense.

    I was hoping they were trying to repeal the entire act so the mortgage industry could get back on track and end the housing crisis once and for all!

    Look out, maybe common sense is making a come back!

    Dont get your lips wet yet! They will not touch the compensation rules, I would be very surprised if so. For the record, Dodd Frank, DID INDEED "enshrine" too big to fail. Iam backing them up!

    Griff you are part of the problem with your post "This might be the only intelligent thing a Republican and especially Hensarling has said in the last few years. I'm pulling for them on this one."

    The next step is to re-instate the Glass - Steagall Act to rid ourselves of mortgage backed securities, and then return our currency to a "gold standard".

    Now maybe someone could prove the CFPB is a runaway thief with no one to answer to. Surprise-- this isn't what OBAMA said it would be. I still think someone should start impeachment for failure to protect our borders. NAH let's just pay for everyone else's medical, schooling and food while they find a way to limit what broker's make.

    This is exactly what's required to be done post haste because the Dodd-Frank act is a complete failure. It is government heavy-handed control that causes far more problems then it cures. The government wants to think for us and believes that they can make better decisions for us than we can. Big brother elitists thinking that they know what's best for us. Please get out of our lives and our pockets with far less government control. Let the free market be free without government interference....

    Not so fast, just cause Hensarling said "One" thing that's made sense doesn't mean he's always been there. Just heard Elizabeth Warren might put her name in the 2016 Presidential run too she's a Dodd Frank lover...fun is yet to come. Hopefully, Hensarling can stay on his roll.

    I must agree, one of the smartest things a Republican has stated or had intentions to work toward in some time. Usually everything gets tied up in a big argument with no concession or accomplishment. Dodd-Frank is too regulated....to the point of giving smaller financial entities a difficult time in helping the American people with their financial service needs.

    Unfortunately this will be another bill going no where. How is this going to pass the Senate and get a presidential autograph? I do believe the republicans will control both houses after the mid term but will not have the votes to override a veto The only way Dodd Frank will get modified or repealed will be if the republicans can win the white house in 2016.

    DF was like taking a chain saw to a problem, you don't cut the base out.

    Maybe Frank Dodd didn't fix the to big to fail issue but it sure hurt a lot of small business people in the field.
