The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has been invaluable to me in my personal life. 5 years ago I was assaulted in my apartment and it destroyed my credit because I was hospitalized for over 7 months. Without having the help of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau I would still have no credit. The fact that our government if you want to call it that through this President is trying to destroy something that protects us from predatory lending and big Bank is just absolutely mind-boggling.
It is shameful that we have a government that is currently an office that believes that it can lie to its people and get away with it. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the brainchild of Elizabeth Warren, is here to help individuals and not hurt them. It is a necessary tool and I hope you will do everything in your power to keep it strong and active.
You get the most bang for your time in your Federal Representatives. You can reach them at this number (202) 224-3121, just input your zip code and it will take you to the correct offices. I have read that this is more effective than sending a physical letter or emailing them through their websites. They certainly do not look at their Twitter or Facebook feeds for input from their constituents. It is our civic and moral duty in this time of trump to fight every one of these atrocities that he’s committing against the American people with every single bit of effort we have. If you don’t know what the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau does here is there website and you can see how important they are in our everyday lives. The person that was appointed as the interim Chief has mated his one priority to destroy the agency. This is how our current occupier of the White House does things. Look who we put in charge of the EPA, the FDA and so on and so on and so on.
