With little fanfare, and on behalf of their bank constituents, Republican budget negotiators steadfastly required a repeal of the "Swaps Push Out Rule" in the recently passed US budget bill. This provision was a critical component of Dodd Frank designed to get swaps trading out of the federally insured part of large financial institutions and prevent more bank bailouts. Its repeal effectively codifies "too big to fail" instead of preventing it. I hope this Republican slight of hand is brought to the attention of the American public and they are outraged!
