We have become used to both parties focusing on battling each other rather than working together. This week we had some good news from Congress.
The Dodd-Frank bill was enacted after the financial meltdown. Regulatory reform was obviously needed but it went too far. One of the biggest problems was the paperwork burden on small community banks. A bill to correct this was passed and signed by President Trump. A number of Democrats voted for it.
Unfortunately, I believe that any cooperation between the parties will rarely happen. We deserve better.
