Waters: Republicans Continue Attacks on Consumers
Washington, DC, June 14, 2016
Today, Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-CA), Ranking Member of the House Financial Services Committee, issued the following statement on House Republicans’ so-called regulatory reform agenda:
“House Republicans are once again making it clear that they do not care. Last week, they showed America that they don’t care about people living in poverty by releasing a fake poverty agenda that would punish and blame the poor instead of investing in critical resources like housing. This week, they are focusing their disregard on America’s consumers. They’ve released a deregulatory platform that would dismantle the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau that was created by the Dodd-Frank Act to give consumers the kind of protections they didn’t have before.
