STATEMENT: Faulkender Commends Conservatives for Putting the Retirement Savings of American Families First

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Today, the America First Policy Institute (AFPI) released the following statement from Mike Faulkender, Chief Economist at AFPI, applauding the House Financial Services Committee for considering policies that put the retirement savings of hardworking American families above efforts to politicize our retirement markets. The committee meets today to mark up measures to restore fiscal sanity to our financial markets. 

“Stopping the politicization of retirement savings is the number one investor protection issue of our time. Families saving for retirement deserve better than to see their hard-earned retirement savings go toward furthering the same radical left-wing policies they already rejected at the ballot box.

“The comprehensive legislative package the House Financial Services Committee is considering today prioritizes retirement security, limits mandatory disclosure to only information that is imperative for American savers, and holds financial regulators accountable, an excellent first step to real change. Future economic growth depends on market confidence, and investors should trust their investments are going toward their best interests, not a political agenda with which they disagree."
