    •  she can protect the CFPB (17+ / 0-)

      from being neutered by Congress, and that is enough.  The CFPB is doing excellent work and all we need to do is keep Congress off thier backs

      PS if you have ever had a problem with a credit card company, student loan provider, mortgage holder, etc and you HAVEN'T used CFPB's website to file a complaint, I strongly urge you to.  You'll be stunned at how quickly the bank or lender will get back to you to try to fix things

      (had a friend who'd fought with BOA for 18 months over a mortgage, gotten the run-around the entire time, but 20 HOURS after she filed a complaint on the web portal and apologetic BOA VP was calling HER)
