    Obama (finally) appoints Consumer Finance Protection Chief

    Against the wishes of the Republicans, Pres. Obama finally filled the vacant seat of Chief of Consumer Finance Protection Bureau.

    WASHINGTON --President Barack Obama will announce from Shaker Heights, Ohio today that he is using his power to bypass the Senate and installing former Ohio Attorney General Richard Cordray as director of the Consumer Finance Protection Bureau.

    Partial text of President Obama's prepared remarks for today:

    "Every day that Richard waits to be confirmed is another day when millions of Americans are left unprotected," the president will say. "Without a director in place, the consumer watchdog agency we've set up is left without the tools it needs to prevent dishonest mortgage brokers, payday lenders and debt collectors from taking advantage of consumers. That's inexcusable. It's wrong. And I refuse to take 'no' for an answer.

    -----------------------------------------

    Sounds good to me.... Thank You Mr. Obama.... The Big Banks weild enough power as is over the working people in this country.

    I don't see the point in this. We have consumer protection laws in place now that we don't enforce.

    We have insider trading and fraud laws in place now that we rarely ever enforce.

    This is just another layer of bureaucracy that will impose additional requirements that cost time and money onto my business, but accomplish very little if anything in regards to protecting the average citizen.

    More of just spending $100 to save $0.50.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!
