Last quote by Jeb Hensarling

It is encouraging to have a president who is listening to the concerns of community bankers who have been buried under an avalanche of burdensome regulations as a result of Dodd-Frank. We are losing, on average, a community financial institution a day because of the sheer size, weight and complexity of these regulations that prevent community banks from serving their customers.feedback

We have set up, basically, a dictator. We would be derelict in our duty if we didn't do something about it. And Senator Cruz's plan is certainly a valid plan, and that is simply get rid of it and start over.

And so it has got to either be done away with [or] it's got to be functionally reformed and taken care of.feedback

We must be vigilant to ensure that our central bankers do not one day become our central planners. There is zero evidence that zero interest rates and a bloated Fed balance sheet lead to a healthy economy.feedback

After eight years there is zero evidence that zero interest rates and a bloated Fed balance sheet lead to a healthy economy. Clearly, American have a newfound expectation that our economy will grow healthier with different policies coming out of Washington.feedback

The senate can achieve this with a simple majority vote.feedback

Dodd-Frank broke all its promises. I certainly hope to do my part on Capitol Hill to return us to a healthy economy and unclog the arteries of lending.feedback

Too many small businesses, too many entrepreneurs can't find lending because of the sheer weight, volume and control of Dodd-Frank. Dodd-Frank clogs the arteries of capitalism in our system. It hurts working people. It hurts consumers. It needs to go.feedback

It seems the Obama administration's parting gift to hardworking taxpayers is to put them at greater risk of footing the bill for yet another bailout. Just three years ago the taxpayers had to spend $1.7 billion to bail out the FHA. Lowering premiums to below market rates now only puts the FHA in a more precarious financial condition.feedback

I prefer carrots over sticks and I prefer tax reform over taxes. What we need to do is make America the most attractive place to site a business, to grow a business, to create a business.feedback

I would strongly urge you to respect the results of last week's election and resist the temptation to finalize any regulations, including Dodd-Frank ... regulations.feedback

It's nice to be mentioned, and I certainly want to help our new president make America stronger and more prosperous, but serving in his Cabinet is not something I've indicated an interest in and it's not something I am pursuing.feedback

But I'm not anticipating the telephone call. It is not something I've indicated interest in. It is not something I am pursuing. ... I think I'm in a pretty good position now to advance the cause.feedback

It puts government bureaucrats between consumers and their credit cards and their mortgages.feedback

I think under our speaker Paul Ryan, Republicans have put forward the most detailed plan for economic growth, for personal freedom, for constitutional government. I think I'd start off and go home and drink a cold beer if the election didn't go my way. And then once we get past that, we're never going to ... end trying to find some common ground.feedback

The bottom line is we want to know how did this take place; why did this take place; who is being held accountable?feedback
