The Hill Reports on the GOP's Continuing Effort to Cripple the CFPB

Here. Eleven proposed bills this time. It creates an interesting contrast with the just issued CFPB's Supervisory Highlights report, which reports, for example, that the CFPB found that one collection firm violated debt collection laws approximately 17,000 times and a creditor has been selling debts on which consumers were no longer liable. And those are only two examples from one law covered in the report; there are plenty of others. If the Republican House members get their way, what would stop those violations of the law from continuing?
