Dodd Frank has been great for big banks. Under Dodd Frank, big banks have gotten even bigger and smaller local banks have been crushed under regulations and the fact that compliance with 19,000 regulations is both expensive and time consuming.

This comment sums up the feeling of the entire article:

“Sean Ormond, President of First New Mexico Bank of Silver City has an idea on how to jump start the economies of New Mexico rural communities and those throughout the nation: exempt community banks from the Dodd Frank Act and its tsunami of new regulations.”
