About "Reform Dodd-Frank (NEG)"
The Financial CHOICE Act of 2017 seeks to drastically alter and scale back Dodd-Frank, a massive bill that provided significant financial reforms after the financial crisis in 2008. The affirmative case argues that although Dodd-Frank’s intentions were good, the actual effects were harmful to both consumers and companies, and their plan tries to fix D-F’s problems. This brief argues that the protections Dodd-Frank provided, while not perfect, are still better than the alternative of repealing them. Dodd-Frank has helped, not hurt, consumers and small banks. Furthermore, the two areas the affirmative case focuses on (the CFPB and the Volcker Rule) are critical protections for consumers and must not be weakened.
