Republicans Just Voted To Kill An Obama-era Anti-Corruption Rule

Republicans Just Voted To Kill An Obama-era Anti-Corruption Rule In what will be one of the first bills the new Congress sends to Donald Trump for his signature, Republicans decided to kill a securities disclosure rule that is aimed at curbing corruption at big oil, gas and mining companies.

You know because if a large oil company (like say Exxon Mobil) has to report the payments they make to a foreign government (like say Russia),...

Senator Elizabeth Warren Slams Trump’s Attempt To Weaken Dodd-Frank Financial Regulations

Senator Elizabeth Warren Slams Trump’s Attempt To Weaken Dodd-Frank Financial Regulations Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren on Friday slammed Donald Trump for two executive orders that he signed Friday in an attempt to weaken the Dodd-Frank financial regulations. Trump is specifically going after one Obama-era rule that is meant to protect Americans’ retirement money, the so-called fiduciary rule. Essentially, the fiduciary rule requires that financial advisors act in your best interest when they are offering you products and services rather than just selling you the funds that will get them the highest commission.
