We’re marking an anniversary of sorts today. Two years ago, President Obama signed the sweeping Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act into law. The law was intended to end the kind of practices that provoked the financial crisis back in 2008.

But two years on, many of the new rules and regulations have yet to be enacted. According to The Boston Globe, just 120 of the law’s nearly 400 regulations are actually in effect.

U.S. Rep. Barney Frank, who represents the 4th Congressional District, joins Radio Boston to talk about the law.

    Frank has built his career and “personal” life on the misery of
    twelve million Americans who now face foreclosure

    Gay/Marxist Agenda Barney Frank represents 
    is cultural warfare.

    so-called “marriage” is a publicity stunt.

    Frank’s only regret is that he didn’t rip off
    enough from middle-class taxpayers.

    philosophy is from the “we’ll get ours” school of thought.

    There is nothing warm and fuzzy about a
    crooked Marxist who created the real estate housing mess and whose goal was to disenfranchise
    the American middle class.

    He used the letter of the law to fast-forward
    banking foreclosures through shady mortgage companies.  And now he is hiding behind the letter of the
    law to save his own skin and obscure how he has profited.

    Massachusetts voters are sick of the Champagne
    Socialism Frank represents.  As a
    representative, Frank refers to his constituents as “nobodies” who are “pieces
    of furniture.”

    The twelve million Americans who are facing
    foreclosure want to know when Frank is going to be convicted.

    Frank had the guts to visit the people whose homes he has put into foreclosure,
    they would SPIT on him.
