first_imgNAFCU Vice President of Legislative Affairs Brad Thaler yesterday shared additional thoughts on the draft “Financial CHOICE Act” with its author, House Financial Services Committee Chairman Jeb Hensarling, R-Texas, emphasizing the need for a positive regulatory environment for credit unions.Thaler prefaced his comments with an overview of the elements NAFCU believes are necessary for such an environment. Among these, he noted, are the ability to pursue healthy fields of membership that are not limited by outdated laws or regulatory red tape; capital requirements that are appropriate to risk and not “one size fits all”; and an independent federal regulator that can address the challenges of the industry.Thaler thanked Chairman Hensarling for his leadership on providing relief to credit unions and expressed NAFCU’s strong support for the proposed repeal of the Dodd-Frank Act’s Durbin amendment. He also noted the association’s support for many of the regulatory relief measures found in the discussion draft.NAFCU’s support for CFPB reforms was noted, as Thaler reiterated that NAFCU was the only credit union trade association to oppose subjecting credit unions to CFPB authority under Dodd-Frank, and the association maintains that CFPB has the authority – and should be using that authority – to exempt credit unions from regulations aimed at bad actors. continue reading » 1SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionCongress wants to create jobs by cutting taxes. But who should get the biggest cuts?Republicans prefer to stimulate the supply side (investors and corporations), while Democrats favor directing most of the cuts to the demand side (consumers). I suggest that we can choose between these options by examining the current state of the economy.Supply side: The stock market is booming, and investors are buying equities at unusually high price/earnings ratios, which suggests there is lots of hot money out there chasing too few opportunities. Furthermore, corporations are sitting on large piles of cash. So, it would seem that the supply side is not hurting for money.Demand side: It’s reported that consumers have accumulated historically large debts, in credit cards and second mortgages, to maintain their lifestyles. This suggests a lack of resources on the demand side. If consumers were given large tax cuts, they would spend the money rapidly, increasing demand for products and services and providing an impetus for businesses to grow. So, why are Republicans focused on the supply side, as in the Reagan and “W” Bush administrations? Probably because investors and corporations are their biggest donors.Bruce PomeroyDuanesburgMore from The Daily Gazette:Foss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusLocal movie theater operators react to green lightEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homeslast_img read more
