house Bill H.R. 1500

Should the Trump Admin’s Changes to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Be Reversed?

Argument in favor

The Trump administration has repeatedly tried to undermine and marginalize the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. This bill would protect the agency from further attacks and ensure it can perform its responsibilities.

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau should be funded and changes made by the Trump administration reversed. The CFPB was an advocate for consumers who had been ripped off by harmful corporate vipers before it was decimated by Mulvaney. Trump and his minions neutralized its effectiveness. Anything that's good for the middle class is fair game for this corrupt bunch of thieves.

For all those who feel this is just “Trump hate” or some kind if revenge, go apply for a now unregulated loan or go ahead and get ripped off by some crooked business. These laws were for consumer protection. If you don’t like it, I suspect you are profiting by deregulation somehow. I see my “representative” voted against it. Mr Republican party-liner. Never misses. It passed, likely will die in the Senate. Enjoy your payday loans, Republicans. And don’t give me any of that Bible stuff. There’s alot more about usury than most of the stuff you worry about.

Argument opposed

Rather than passing a partisan bill to further politicize the CFPB, House Democrats should support bipartisan efforts to reform the agency in the mold of other bipartisan federal commissions.

This is just another attempt by the liberal left to control every possible aspect of the life of a citizen of the USA. I see no place in the Constitution where such an agency is one of the enumerated powers of the federal government and will remind you all that where the Constitution does not give specific power to the federal government, all power remains with the states and we the people. The last thing we need is more federal government interference in our daily lives or our economy.

    Consumer Financial Protection was set up to make sure Big Corp Banks don’t have unfair practices to the consumer without a watchdog. Example is Wells Fargo training their staff to sign up consumers (their customers) with 6 Wells Fargo accounts. Trump and his big rich corporations are free to do whatever they want to hardworking Americans. We need an organization to watch the big greedy corporations so they don’t swindle the consumer out of more money to line the pockets of the executives at the financial organizations. The banking executives need to go to jail. They are greedy and got away with screwing over the American people.

    Every single thing this Administration has done and continues to do is aimed at destroying America. Corporations are not America. It is the job of government to regulate commerce. When it ceases to regulate and begins giving the country away it is time to get rid of the sell-outs and replace them. In my opinion nothing this gang of criminals do should be left standing. Pie in the sky wishful thinking since virtually all of Congress is bought and paid for by the people they are supposed to be regulating, but my belief none the less.

    He is an illegitimate president. How can you fools not see how he’s destroying every protection we had? Midwesterners, how do you like all the tornadoes you’re having? You can thank the ass you voted for for doing absolutely nothing to rein in climate change. Be prepared for things to get much worse. Same with you farmers. One of these days there will be no more money to bail your asses out. We can’t save you from the fool forever! Everything the chief ass has done should be reversed as soon as we impeach him or vote his big, fat ass out! Whichever we can do first!
