Financial Reform

Trump signed another fun executive order! Remember that law that said it was illegal for your financial advisor to give you advice that was contrary to your best interests? Neither did I. Seems like a law that should be unnecessary… but not really. If there’s a regulation that helps regular people you can believe its days are numbered.

David Dayen explains further in The Intercept, some of which was covered in a story the other day.

The idea that anyone, even the craven authoritarians who support Trump, can still say with a straight face that he has the interests of regular people at heart is just bonkers. The guy hasn’t paid taxes in we-don’t-know-how-long but that makes him “smart.”
