Regulations choke and hinder the private sector. This bipartisan legislation contains numerous commonsense solutions that improve the regulatory environment for startups, investors, and financial firms that will spur job creation and economic growth. Get the bloated federal government out of matters of the private sector.

👍🏻S - 488 - The JOBS Act 3.0 👎🏻 I’m in strong support of the bill S 488 — the JOBS and Investor Confidence Act of 2018 or JOBS Act 3.0 — would aim to ease regulations for startups, investors, and financial institutions. It’d serve as the legislative vehicle for more than 30 individual bills aimed at many of which passed the House with bipartisan support earlier this Congress. The package, as announced in a release Monday, reflects an agreement between House Financial Services Committee Chairman Jeb Hensarling, R-Texas, and Ranking Member Maxine Waters, D-Calif., and includes 32 measures previously approved by the House or the Financial Services Committee, many with strong bipartisan support. This bipartisan legislation contains numerous commonsense solutions that improve the regulatory environment for startups, investors, and financial firms that will spur job creation and economic growth. 7*16*18 .....

Argument opposed

While many of these bills may be worthwhile, the House shouldn’t bundle them together for the Senate’s consideration. They should be considered individually even if it takes the Senate more time to do so.

Nope. This sounds like what we had prior to the recessions and prior to the former Dodd-Frank law. Obviously, Congress doesn’t remember history.

Gutting regulations doesn’t help create jobs! It helps corporations bully employees, make even more money that will be stashed in off shore accounts to avoid taxes, and destroy the environment!!!

Calling this a jobs act is absurd. I don’t think most of these bills will help create any jobs. Some of these bills look good, but others are not and they should not all be bundled into a single piece of legislation. Separate them out and consider them all separately.

    As soon as I see something referred to as a "Jobs Bill", I immediately suspect something sneaky is underway. Particularly when the word "jobs" doesn't appear anywhere else in the bill. So let's be honest. these are bills loosening regulations and mostly benefitting big investors and business. Might jobs result? Perhaps. Are these jobs going to be in the USA? That is not clear. It is also not clear to what extent provisions are included that may raise risk for naive investors. What is the definition of a startup? Can a huge corporation start a subsidiary that it defines as a startup that can then avoid regulation the larger corporation is subject to? What benefits accrue to the investors? I'm sick of bills that benefit corporations and rich investors and that have poison pills hidden in them that hurt the average worker. I'd want to see more detail than this to approve. And I'd love to see a bill that actually addresses jobs from the perspective of workers for a change. That would really be novel!

    If you want to create jobs, a higher minimum wage, eliminating anti poaching rules, and improve benefits across the board. Deregulation doesn’t create jobs, it makes the wealthy wealthier. That’s it. It doesn’t trickle down, folks. Even the Reagan advisor who helped create the economic model admitted its a scam.

    Representatives and Senators- While many of these bills are good, several of them are not. Specifically, exempting some financial institutions from Dodd-Frank Stress Tests. In the current economy, I believe that deregulation is risky and endangers our long term economic health. This kind of deregulation historically leads to economic depression. Please consider the bills separately to make wise decisions.

    There are several reasons why I cannot support this legislation. First and foremost, you cannot even tell the taxpayers how much it is going to cost us! Which is pretty sad since half of this legislation has already passed through the house! Second, your bundling of legislation has cost the law-abiding American citizen to compromise their constitutional rights in the past many of times. Third, you didn’t have them bundled in the house therefore, you shouldn’t expect the senate to have to deal with them like that either! So, much for “for the people, by the people”!!!!!!

    New, bad laws shouldn’t be enacted simply because they were part of a package deal. There’s good and bad in here, and we should take the time to get rid of the bad. This affects people’s lives. Take the time.

    Naw, man. We’ve done plenty to help the bankers and investors. We need to help workers. We cannot help workers by removing the regulations that protect them.

    Each provision should be voted on separately. Looks like corporate welfare to me. No more passes for employers to abuse employees.
