Washington is a flurry of news – ongoing negative coverage on the President’s historic meeting with North Korea, Majority Leader McConnell’s decision to cancel the Senate’s August recess due to unprecedented Democratic obstruction of the President’s appointees, and Nancy Pelosi raining on America’s LOW unemployment parade.
Meanwhile, over in the House of Representatives, I’ve been hard at work on the Financial Services Committee to continue delivering relief to Main Street. Getting S.2155, the most significant rollback of the Dodd-Frank Act in nearly a decade (which included my Home Mortgage Disclosure Act) across the finish line was a major accomplishment, but it was just the first step. Last week, the Financial Services Committee unanimously passed a new bill I introduced, the Main Street Growth Act, 56-0. It’s not every day the other side of the aisle agrees with Republicans, but some solutions are so common sense, there’s no question.
