Did Rep. Kevin Cramer have amnesia when he cast his vote for the Financial Choice Act of 2017, the rollback of Dodd Frank? Dodd Frank was enacted to correct the problems that resulted in the 2008 meltdown. Cramer displayed his willingness to put the Trump agenda ahead of what's best for the financial well-being of his constituents.

Cramer's vote was the wrong choice. It allows financial advisors to return to the practice of putting their profit ahead of what's best for your financial well being. That practice resulted in drastic losses of your hard earned money invested in 401ks and other retirement plans.

Also, banks will be able to return to the bad loan practices which led to their bailout. Should hard working taxpayers be responsible for future bailouts? No CEO was held accountable for their risky behavior.

Does Cramer have the ability to start putting what's best for the hard-working folks of North Dakota ahead of the big financial institutions?
