In his first major speech as president, President Donald Trump offered some of the most powerful economic and fiscal proposals in the country’s history.
But what you may not know is that the speech was also the most political.
The speech was one of the first to call for the repeal of the 2010 Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, which passed with huge bipartisan support and helped to push the nation into the deepest recession since the Great Depression.
The legislation created a commission to recommend changes to the law, including a plan to phase out all mortgage insurance subsidies.
The president said he wanted to repeal the law and make America “more equal.”
Trump’s speech, and the president’s subsequent remarks on the campaign trail, are among the most influential political speeches of the last 40 years.
While the speech itself has been widely seen as the final act of the presidency, there’s one major omission from Trump’s remarks: he left out a key piece of his economic agenda: repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act.
Here’s what you need to know about the president and the repeal bill that’s coming.
