    Sure I did. Many times. And there are links from non-partisan sources that are along the same line I've been posting about.

    The regulations can be handled by the big banks. They can afford them, and they are staffed for them. They are also the ones (if you recall) who were making bad loans...intentionally.

    The community banks historically didn't make bad loans. Yet they are now overburdened with regs they can't manage, aren't staffed for, have to make very large capital investments in software & consulting to handle, etc. There are also very strict burdens on them as far as capital ratios which enable them to lend money. Those ratios are close to unrealistic, and as a result, they will even more than ever stop lending. That will hurt consumers and small businesses.

    They will collapse even more, and become targets of large banks. That is also not good for consumers and most especially not small businesses.

    That's what I've said repeatedly in this thread.

    Tell you how many what? Banks went under in the 1940s? I showed you how many banks were around 30 years ago versus now. I'd like to do the research for you on banks that collapsed during the Depression, but I don't have any interest in that myself because it has nothing to do with Elizabeth Warren and the CFPB.

    You said community banks were doing fine the last 50 years, MG. I showed you that your statement was not accurate.

    And, from your link, here is the devil in Warren's stated position on that, right out of what some would call liberal la-la land:

    Any housing-finance legislation should include an explicit government guarantee and solve servicer and trustee problems for modifying mortgages, Warren said. The new system shouldn’t increase advantages for large banks, which would exacerbate the problem of lenders being deemed too big to fail, and the U.S. guarantee must serve the entire primary market, she said.

    I am not finding anywhere that she is suggesting that people should save their money and wait until they can afford a home before they buy one. I can applaud better verification on ability to pay, if I could just shake the idea that she interprets 'ability to pay' meaning determining whether they qualify for federal guarantees. Seems to me that her idea for regulation reform is to make sure the 'risky loans' are fully backed by the federal government.

    If I am shown to be wrong about that, I'll fess up that I was wrong. But I have seen nothing in Warren's general point of view or philosophy that gives me much confidence that she means anything else.
    That's because she didn't. Warren, like a true Progressive, refuses to make the borrowers have any responsibility for their actions. In her mind, it's everyone else's fault.

    That link is to QM/ATR which I've mentioned a few times in this thread. QM/ATR is going to drive an enormous percentage of community banks & credit unions out of the lending business. They can't handle it, and not because they were ever making risky loans to begin with, but because of what's involved in the documentation, underwriting etc. of loans now. So I hope people are happy when they can only go to Bank of America, Chase, and the other big banks to get a mortgage, because that is what is going to happen in the end.

    Warren is helping the big banks and that's why they love her.

And if you don't feel you have to pretend, all the better.

    I think i speak for everyone when I say that I always welcome insight from someone with first-hand knowledge on a subject, even when I disagree with him. I'm always happy when Turtledude brings something informative (and concisely) about law into a thread, and I think I can count the number of things we agree on on the fingers of one hand. So that's all I'm asking for here. As it stands, your manner of bringing specifics to this discussion is vague and obscure (such as your frequent use of acronym-dumping), almost bordering on being evasive.
    Did I miss your definition of "independent banks"? If you want me to answer any of your posts, I'll ask you one more time to define what you put out there in a post. You are avoiding it to a degree I've never seen anyone avoid being asked what a post they made means. With all due respect, kindly don't accuse me of being evasive. I've answered every question I've been asked. You've ignored the same question repeatedly.

    Please let me know what you meant when you said "independent bank" and I'll be more than happy to keep posting in this thread to you.

    Okay, you think people are stupid. We disagree. I don't think everyone is stupid.

    What percentage of people, would you guesstimate, are stupid.

    Upgrade "bordering on evasive" to "full-on evasive." Your fixation on one word in an attempt to avoid bringing any concrete insight is transparent as hell, but this is what I've come to recognize from your posting style since you've begun here: bring nothing, be as condescending as you possibly can to everyone in the room, and then leave the room no better (and measurably worse) than you found it. For the most part I try to behave on this site as I would if I were using my real name, and I simply can't believe you behave in real life as you do here. You'd be an instant social pariah.

    So you can't define what you said, which leads me to the obvious - you don't even know what you said. Have a great Father's Day, Cardinal!
