Jeb Hensarling quotes
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.
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.
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.
I do not favor a border tax, let me be clear. I do not wish to equivocate.
Such midnight rulemaking is neither conducive to sound policy nor consistent with the principles of democratic accountability.
The most urgent need we have is to throw a life preserver to community banks that capitalize our small businesses.
I stand ready to help the president in any capacity possible. I've got a great position in public policy today. If he wants to talk to me obviously about serving somewhere else, we'll look at serving somewhere else.
Reform of the Federal Reserve remains a top priority. It has to give the American people a greater accounting of its actions.
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.
I remain troubled that the Fed may have added items to the Stress Test that were conceived, negotiated and approved in closed-door international meetings.
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.
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.
It puts government bureaucrats between consumers and their credit cards and their mortgages.
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.
The bottom line is we want to know how did this take place; why did this take place; who is being held accountable?
As a member of Congress, our business is applying the law. Our business is making sure that the remedies of fines and penalties and, where necessary, criminal prosecution - if the facts warrant - that's the business of government.
I'll tell you this: if I was a shareholder, I would be outraged if there weren't clawbacks.
Hopefully have a more thorough, in-depth hearing and start getting some answers to the American people because theft is theft, fraud is fraud.
We're probably only in the third inning. There's lots more to go here and we're only starting investigation now.
Here's something we both agree with, and that is Dodd-Frank is impeding economic growth. I think he well received the message. I think he was interested in the policy.
Those on the left who gave us Dodd-Frank believe in the principle that human nature is self-destructive and that people - except themselves, of course - are fundamentally ignorant.
Not unlike many Republicans, I've certainly had my disagreements with Donald Trump. But at least one thing is I know – he's working on a very solid tax plan and he also realizes that Dodd-Frank has hurt working Americans and that it's broken its promises.
