Letter to the Editor: We need the Consumer Finance Protection Board


Since its creation, the Consumer Finance Protection Board (CFPB) has returned about $12 billion  to consumers. Yet, the president of the United States and Republicans want to get rid of it.

They just hate giving any money back to the folks they have defrauded, and they hate that there is a government agency set up to catch them defrauding us. Isn’t that what the government is supposed to do? Protect us? Not just from foreign attacks but from corporate attacks?

If we allow this president and the Republicans to get rid of the CFPB, we will have given up on getting our money’s worth anywhere in this country. How does that make America great again?
