Headlines from the day’s newspapers were read and telephone lines were open for viewer comments on the question: “Your Thoughts on Wall Street?” That week was the fifth anniversary of President Obama signing the Dodd-Frank Financial Reform and Consumer Protection Act on July 21, 2010. The law was an effort to more closely regulate Wall Street in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis. A video clip was shown of former Representative Barney Frank (D-MA), one of the primary authors of the law, speaking about it July 20, 2015, and House Financial Services Committee Chair Jeb Hensarling (R-TX) on July 21, 2015. Also, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was shown speaking about her proposed tax system the previous day.

The program concluded with a video clip of House Appropriations Committee Chair Harold Rogers (R-KY) being interviewed July 23, 2015, for “Newsmakers.” close
