The article focuses on U.S. Representative Scott Garrett, who would become chairman of the House Financial Services Committee should the Republican party win a majority in the 2010 elections. Garrett discusses his legislative agenda, which includes dissolution of the government-sponsored enterprises Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and the abolition of a financial consumer protection bureau. Garrett admits his proposals are unlikely to become law due to opposition from President Barack Obama.
