One thought on “I can’t believe we have to fight the fiduciary standard thing again….”

  1. Why did the Obama administration wait till the last minute to do these things? Same for the overtime rule. If these things are important then you don't wait around till the last minute to do them for the very reason we see now. These are things he should have done on his first day in office. Executive orders. I guess that whole "democrats growing a spine" thing will have to wait at least 4 more years?
