Obama, with a straight face, criticized efforts in Congress, led by Republicans, to roll back some of the financial rules approved last year. He even tried to defend the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau created by that legislation, against GOP efforts to weaken it.
Obama, again, with a straight face, said some banks are now following the new regulations and are charging consumers more. (Thank you Mr. President) " Does anybody up there ever think these things through before they vote on them? Or was this another of the famous,"pass it so we can see what's in it" bills. " It was a reference to a fee some banks are imposing on the consumers because of the restrictions on debit card fees banks used to charge retailers but now charge consumers, thanks to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.
"It's not necessarily fair to consumers," he said.( I guess rules are rules and since nobody had the foresight to see what was coming the consumer will get soaked again) Thank you, Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Now what is consumer Protection all about?
Obama also said the European Union has to act fast to deal with its debt crisis, but he said he is confident that European leaders are ready to take the necessary steps. The United States leaders screwed it up royally. Thank you, Mr. President and the Consumer Protection Bureau. Will someone tell me who passed a bill setting up this SO CALLED Consumer Protection Financial Bureau?
THE PRESIDENT AND HIS PARTY DID WHAT?
