The CHOICE Act is WRONG for Americans and the economy

A bill being considered by the House, the Financial CHOICE Act, or more-aptly called “WRONG CHOICE Act” (H.R. 10) would eviscerate post Great Recession safeguards, including most of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, putting the U.S. economy and taxpayers in the same perilous position as prior to the financial crisis.

Dodd-Frank passed in the wake of the devastating financial crisis that cost 8.7 million jobs, $19 trillion in wealth and almost 10 million homes, putting into place consumer and financial stability safeguards to check Wall Street of its greed and to protect consumers. The Financial CHOICE Act (H.R. 10), would eviscerate these safeguards, including the consumer watchdog agency, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, putting the U.S. economy and taxpayers in danger of another financial collapse.
