    Rolling back of the CFPB is exactly what's needed Mr. Barr. Elections have consequences. Congress is rolling back your DFA and hopefully reversing the damage it created.

    The world is going to end crowd never ceases to amaze me. All perceived problems can always be solved by more regulation, more government intervention and more direct or indirect taxes. The CFPB is an example of all three and Congress created it.

    "It's bad enough that the administration is rolling back enforcement at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Congress does not need to join in the parade." When I saw this pull quote it was not necessary to spend much time with the rest of the article. For those of us in the banking trenches, rolling back the unbridled and capricious enforcement efforts of the CFPB is exactly what is needed and Congress is certainly needed to undo the damage inflicted by a previous congress.

    Michael Barr begins his piece by damning the Crapo bill with faint praise. Then he proceeds to play the "Chicken Little" card to scare the reader into thinking that passing this very modest little reform bill will somehow bring down the banking system of the United States. What a load of horse hockey! There is NOTHING in this common sense bill that is going to bring down the banking and economic system of the United States. Stop the lunatic hype please. This bill is a Main Street bill people!!
