Smart. Sharp. Funny. Fearless.

Rep. Barney Frank, the veteran Democrat from the liberal Boston suburbs and chief architect in the House of the Wall Street and financial regulation overhaul (“Dodd-Frank”) passed last year,
announced today that he will not run for re-election next fall:

Mr. Frank faced his most competitive re-election contest in decades last year, when Sean Bielat, a Republican and former Marine, put him on the defensive. But Mr. Frank still won a 16th term by about 10 percentage points.

    Mr. Frank is almost single handily responsible for the housing bubble that crashed our economy and he is being praised for an unneeded financial reform law? It is simply another law upon laws and regulations upon regulations that have no meaning when they are not enforced. I’m a small businessman and with protection like Mr. Frank’s, I don’t need enemies.
