Tuesday, though, the whole Financial Services Committee met to approve Chairman Hensarling's big wet kiss to his bankster donors, a major dismantling of much of Dodd-Frank that allows banks to avoid regulatory oversight. Hensarling also put in a provision to politicize and neuter the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, bane on Wall Street crooks and crooked congressional conservatives. Maxine Waters, the ranking Democrat on the committee mentioned that “At a time when we learn about Wells Fargo... thank you for bringing this bill forward so we can shine a light on exactly what you’re trying to do in dismantling Dodd-Frank... Democrats will not offer any amendments, and we move to dispense with this political theater."
The Democrats on the committee-- most of whom are corrupt, Wall Street-owned New Dems-- just laughed at the nonsensical bill and followed Waters' lead in declining to offer any amendments, knowing the Republicans intended to pass it on to the full House as is. The only Republican to vote NO was electorally vulnerable Bruce Poliquin (R-ME), normally a reliable sieve for Wall Street interests. Every Democrat-- even Kyrsten Sinema, Jim Himes and John Delaney, the 3 most corrupt New Dems on the committee-- voted NO. The full House is unlikely to take up the bill, which the Senate would just throw out anyway if it passed. One Republican staffer told me McCarthy won't bring it up before the election because it would just "make too many of our members look like tools of the banks." Here's a chart from OpenSecrets.com that shows where the financial sector has put it's biggest bribes this cycle. These are the real "deplorables" ruining our country:
