About "Reform Dodd-Frank (AFF)"
Sometimes a cure is worse than the disease.
After the financial crisis that rocked the U.S. from around 2007-2009, Congress was determined to prevent such a thing from every happening again. Its solution was the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, or Dodd-Frank as it is better known. Unfortunately, Congress’ expectations for this bill did not match reality. Not only is Dodd-Frank not an effective solution to the causes of the previous financial crisis, but it introduced many new regulations that are unnecessary and burdensome both for banks and for American citizens. If Congress is serious about protecting the American people, it would repeal and reform significant provisions in Dodd-Frank through passing the Financial CHOICE Act of 2017, a bill that passed the House of Representatives but never became law.
Because Dodd-Frank is a massive bill with hundreds of pages and a sweeping number of reforms, there are far too many points to put into one case. This case included some of the simplest and strongest arguments in the 1AC and categorized them as justifications. However, there are many more areas of Dodd-Frank you could focus on, some of which are included in the 2A evidence. To maximize the research, the 2AC should focus both on extending the points in the 1AC as well as presenting new areas of Dodd-Frank that will be reformed through the plan.
