The Time Is Now to Stand Up for the CFPB


The Time Is Now to Stand Up for the CFPB

Isaiah Poole

Mark Feuer, the Los Angeles City Attorney who helped hold Wells Fargo accountable for creating millions of fake accounts without customers’ knowledge, now warns against efforts by the Trump administration and Congress to dismantle the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.


The bill referred to here is HR10, currently in committee. There are some 24 "related bills" in the House and Senate

ranging from the arcane to the very simple, and including some with illiteracies in their titles ("Reigning in"). You can follow them on the Congress.gov site.

And the CFPB is not remotely all about the Wells Fargo-type bank misdeeds or even getting money back. I celebrate and defend the CFPB for having gotten one big bank (BofA) and 2 stupid little bill collectors off my back.
