Republicants Are At It Again, Making A Dirty Word Out of CFPA

The Republicants are at it again. Trying their damndest to make a dirty word out of CFPA (Consumer Financial Protection Agency). Their mantra is the same ole, same ole from the Party of NO.

"Not good for Business, Not good for profits… NOT GOOD FOR AMERICA... F**K THE PEOPLE, ENOUGH SAID... !"

Why there are any Americans who still identify with this party is beyond me. The other day Chris Mathews of Hard Ball asked one of these Republicants this question.

What have the Republicans done for America lately? Or in the past couple decades?

That's what Chris Matthews pressed Republican strategist Todd Harris about during Hardball on Wednesday.

Matthews repeatedly asked for examples, while citing negative examples like Bush-era spending bills, Katrina, Iraq, and Afghanistan. Harris tried to keep the focus on the 2010 elections and expressed hope that Democrats would keep going after Bush so the GOP could stay on message about being a balance against the current Democratic leadership.

Matthews suggested one answer, which Harris latched onto. "The Bush administration kept the country safe," said the guest.

"Except the one big day," the host shot back.

"YouTube is watching," he told Harris. "You're the Republican consultant. One of the best in the country. Tell me what the Republican party has done for this country in the last ten to 20 years."

Harris stayed silent.

"Thank you," Matthews said to his recurring GOP guest as he closed the segment. "We'll have you back with the answer."

Even a Republicant strategist could not give a straight answer to WHAT HAS THE REPUBLICANT PARTY DONE FOR AMERICA?

GOP, Warning of a 'New EPA', Oppose Independent CFPA

by Ryan Grim

Senate Republicans are determined to prevent the creation of an
independent Consumer Financial Protection Agency because they
consider it as threatening as their current arch-nemesis
regulator: the Environmental Protection Agency.

Consumer advocates, meanwhile, say the CFPA must have strong,
independent authority to craft and enforce rules. Anything less,
they argue, would be too much of a concession to banks that have
gotten enough already.

"From the Republican point of view, the idea of a separate
agency is still anathema," said Sen. Robert Bennett of Utah,
a senior Republican on the banking committee. An independent
agency, he said, can go too far in the direction of tight
regulation without taking into account the effect of the rules it
creates on business and the economy. He said he's seen it happen before.

"Can you say EPA?" he asked, lifting his eyebrows. The
Republican Party has regretted for years that President Richard
Nixon made the EPA independent.

There's been some movement: Republicans who once pushed for total
elimination of the CFPA are now ready to back a compromise
solution that would make the CFPA subservient to a larger
financial regulatory agency, whose leadership could modify or
eliminate any protections deemed hurtful to business. MORE HERE

Now watch Rachel Maddow with her intelligent guest Elizabeth Warren... Remarkable!
