    On Friday Trump signed another executive order instructing the Department of Labor to prepare the ground to rescind the “fiduciary rule,” a regulation the Obama administration wrote last year. It requires financial advisers to act in their client’s best interests, just like doctors or lawyers are required to.

    The need for it came about because often those advisers push their clients to buy products that are bad for them but that bring the advisers higher commissions.

    I sense it's getting quieter as the political carnage grows.

    Excellent work, Hardy Boy!

    However, on February 3, 2017, President Trump signed an executive order delaying the rule's implementation by 180 days. This action includes instructions for the DOL to carry out an “economic and legal analysis” on the rule's potential impact.


    Pesky fine print, right?

    So Trump is now delaying the implementation of a rule designed to make investors act in their clients best interest, rather than eliminating it ouright. Trump is still hindering it from taking effect.

    And you do know it still doesn't mean he won't repeal it right? Trump also delayed repealing Obamacare...does this mean Trump now wants to keep it?

    That was so easy, it's sad.

    I'm not his fan-boy; merely a citizen who wishes to see the government returned to the governed.
    Is Trump the guy for that?
    No.
    He does, however, offer tremendous potential with respect to at least gaining some momentum in stopping the juggernaut corruption that the sow has become.

    His EO for delay is with the caveat to consider all aspects of the bill--- legally and financially--- prior to implementation.
    If it turns out a huge win-win for everyone, you'll likely see it implemented.
    If it's good for one but crap for another--- and that 'another' has a legitimate right to expect protection--- you'll see it scrapped.

    Here's what I think they should do with insurance.
    Whatever they enjoy in Congress, we all get.

    What does that even mean?

    I'm guessing you would have been a HUGE cheerleader for Herbert Hoover, too.

    Right after he blew out all the pesky financial regulations... and right before the Great Depression.

    Is that what you all mean when you say "Make America Great Again"?

    As in the "Great" Depression?

    No, buyer beware. Remember the ones taking advantage of others are Americans too.

    Freedom allows for both good and bad. You would rather give up freedom in exchange for perceived security.
