Statements about Financial Regulation

A Republican housing finance reform bill "would eliminate a person’s ability to obtain 15- and 30-year mortgages."

The federal Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is "collecting financial information, monitoring financial information of millions of Americans" without their knowledge and "storing it for up to 10 years."  

Says U.S. Senate opponent Eric Hovde "supported billions in stimulus for high-speed rail"  and "billions more to bail out banks."

The Dodd-Frank financial-reform law’s hundreds of new rules will force small banks and credit unions to burn up "an estimated 2,260,631 labor hours just for compliance."

The payday loan industry "does not exist in a state like Minnesota."
