This Explains Why Data Shows A Liberal Hollywood Actress Is Out Polling Mitch McConnell
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) is at it again. He sent a letter to President Barack Obama vowing to again block Richard Cordray or any CFPB nominee until Congress can pass a bill taking control of the agency.
“As supporters of strong and effective consumer protections, we write to you to reaffirm our concerns over the transparency and accountability of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB),” the letter reads. “Accordingly, we will continue to oppose the consideration of any nominee, regardless of party affiliation, to be the CFPB director until key structural changes are made to ensure accountability and transparency at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.”
Republicans insist the CFBP replace the director with a board, subject CFPB to the congressional appropriations process and establish “a safety check” for financial regulators who oversee those aspects of financial institutions.
A group of GOP Senators led by Sen. Jerry Moran (R-Kansas) have also introduced legislation in the U.S. Senate to defund the CFPB because the GOP claims they “like Cordray fine” but they insist this is a debate is over politics due to President Obama’s recess appointment of Cordray whose nomination they fought for months before the President made the recess appointment.
That’s right, Mitch McConnell is using his status as Minority Leader to block Cordray until the Senate and House Republicans can gut funding and the enforcement abilities of the CFPB in favor of their deep pocket contributors.
And he wonders why actress Ashley Judd is ahead of him in polling data.
