Patrick Erin Murphy, D-FL 18th
Mr. MURPHY of Florida. Mr. Speaker, I would like to thank my colleagues and the gentleman from New Jersey for their thoughtful debate on this commonsense improvement to the Volcker Rule.
I appreciate my colleagues on the Democratic side of the aisle always keeping the focus on preventing some of the world's largest banks from subjecting the American people to another financial crisis.
However, I believe this bill strikes the right balance to protect the American people and create jobs. It was reported by the Financial Services Committee with a strong bipartisan 53-3 vote, and I urge my colleagues to support this bill.
I yield back the balance of my time.
