FEATURING NOMI PRINS – Thirty-three House Democrats joined Republicans in late May 2018 to pass a bill that chipped away at the Dodd-Frank financial regulations. The bill frees small and medium sized banks from the regulations that were put into place to prevent future recessions. Critics warn that the bill is the beginning of the end of Dodd-Frank and makes future recessions like the 2008 crash more likely.
