Although my focus – and many others’ – was on Trump, I failed to realize that Donald Trump was the least dangerous of the bunch. Republicans in the Houses can wreak havoc – beyond the president’s executive power – and they have. The Repeal of Obamacare is just the beginning; they are now looking at the possibility of dismantling the Dodd Frank act which primary purpose is to “rein in” Wall Street in order to avoid another financial disaster similar to the 2007-2008 meltdown.
Why in the world would you want your elected officials to undo something which shields the country from financial ruins? Here is the gist of what happened during the 2007 Wall Street financial disaster; here is in plain language what it did: your retirement funds were completely depleted, your investments vanished. So, why would you go along with the GOP plan to dismantle the act which protects your investments and your retirement accounts?
Well, if you’re a member of the Intelligent Morons club, you are undoubtedly gullible; you believe your Representatives when they tell you that Dodd Frank places too many regulations on businesses much the same way you believe that Obamacare is bad. Most unfortunately, both the president you voted in office and the Representatives you elected work together to pass legislations, enact policies which are very much against your own interests.
