Yeah, Mrs Doubtfire - always good for mild amusement.
On the other, we will see.
I was just talking with an attorney today about (Dodd-Frank) (unrelated issue) and we agreed that it is so complex, we STILL don't know how it will affect so many aspects of our business - 1000 pages of legislation that no doubt were not read in entirety by Congress. The Financial Choice Act dismantles parts of Dodd Frank. It's like Obiecare - will a partialectomy do the trick or make things worse?

Always a fan of less paperwork, but this does leave us open to the same thieves who contributed to the last crash.

So I have mixed feelings on this

Just because the Houses passes anything doesn't mean it will be law. They haven'y passed anything that has become a signifcant law this year.

I was very unhappy with "too big to fail" bank bailouts.  I'm glad this is getting a long overdue overhaul.  Now it just needs to pass the senate, be signed into law and we have to survive the cry-babies and riots over it.
