EXPORT-IMPORT BANK - RYAN YOUNG


Senate Advances Ex-Im Bank
 

Reauthorization votes are typically dull affairs. But this year’s fight over the Export-Import Bank’s reauthorization is anything but. On Sunday, the Senate voted 67-26 to advance a plan to reauthorize the Export-Import Bank, expired since the end of June. For most of its history, the Export-Import Bank has directed most of its benefits to a handful of large, politically connected firms. In other words, its main function is to dispense corporate welfare. > Read more about the Ex-Im Bank

HIGHWAY BILL - MARC SCRIBNER


Highway Bill Bailout and Spending Schemes Put America’s Roads and Bridges at Risk

 

With the federal highway bill set to expire at the end of July and the highway fund itself projected to run multi-billion dollar deficits in the years ahead, CEI transportation policy expert Marc Scribner warns against ill-considered plans to increase the regressive federal fuel tax or else shift the highway cost burden away from people who actually use the roadways. > Read more

NHDP - John Kasich visits NH on Fifth Anniversary of Wall Street Reform 

 

 

 

Concord, N.H. –  Today is the fifth anniversary of the Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act becoming law. The law is working to make our banking system safer, protecting us from another financial crisis and holding Wall Street accountable.

But John Kasich, a former Wall Street alum, probably won’t talk about Wall Street reform while on the trail in New Hampshire this week. He thinks the Wall Street reform bill went overboard,” and wants to let Wall Street start writing the rules again.

Kasich isn’t the only one. Jeb Bush opposed Wall Street reform, Marco Rubio called it  “disastrous,” and Rand Paul called the consumer protections “exactly the wrong thing,” and even pushed to repeal efforts to rein in Wall Street.

“John Kasich said himself that he had a 'fantastic time' working for a Wall Street firm in the middle of the global financial crisis, but Granite Staters didn’t have a fantastic when the Wall Street crash that our economy at risk,” said Ray Buckley, New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair.  “Kasich’s support for Wall Street over consumer protections is just like his record in Ohio - elevating the interests of the few over middle class families just like every other GOP candidate.”

DODD FRANK ANNIVERSARY

DODD-FRANK HARMS MAIN STREET - IAIN MURRAY 


Dodd-Frank’s Dire Legacy: The Durbin Amendment

 

This week is the fifth anniversary of the passage of the Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, better known as Dodd-Frank.  It has harmed consumers by reducing choice in financial services and failed to solve the problems it was purported to solve, as I outline in my new paper, How Dodd Frank Harms Main Street. One of the worst examples of this stems from the Durbin Amendment, a last minute addition to the bill that gives the Federal Reserve the power to cap interchange fees  charged by debit and credit card networks. > Read more
