This bill deregulates some USS banking and financial industry - mortgage lending, consumer credit services, etc - in aspects that have proved troublesome in the past. Essentially, it's a rough measure of corruption in the US Congress - there is little good reason, a mere 10 years after the last financial implosion, to pass this bill. Here's the House vote: http://clerk.house.gov/evs/2018/roll216.xml Now the point here is this: the major US punditry is reporting this as a "bipartisan" measure, a "bipartisan" vote, (https://www.brookings.edu/research/bipartisanship-in-banking-is-back/) and not mentioning the central role of corruption in its writing and passing. And that shows us - if we didn't know - that the major US media are corporate rightwing and Republican biased. What the vote itself actually shows is that there are 33 malleable Democrats in the House, about 20%, and 1 honest Republican, about 0% (rounded to the nearest whole number). And that the media are so desperate for a "both sides" narrative to cover the Republican ass that a bill opposed by 80% of House Democrats and favored by 99+% of House Republicans qualifies as "bipartisan" legislation.
