Clinton's plans to defend Dodd-Frank may have just gotten a little less likely

Hillary Clinton has promised to thwart Republican attempts to repeal or weaken Dodd-Frank. But will a government watchdog’s new revelations about her State Department emails hurt her presidential hopes?

    Nobody is going to do anything about Dodd Frank or cfpb, so everyone should just get over it. The repubs who hate these guidelines have run the house and senate for years now and made zero headway into fixing something that needs fixed. They prefer to sit on their butts and talk about emails, Benghazi, Bill's indiscretions, or Obamacare. If repubs have no desire to work on real problems, I don't expect anyone else will lead the discussion.

    CFPB is an agency with NO accountability, unlimited budgets, free to make their own rules, demand millions in dollars for rule violations they don't even understand, audit companies with a plan to shake them down to the core, snubs their noses at the judicial system, and eliminated thousands of Americans from buying homes. The CFPB has added millions of dollars for compliance that has increased the cost to buy homes by thousands of dollars for each homeowner and WE let this agency exist. What has happened to this Country? Why have we allowed so many power hungry, non-business government thugs, revenue stealing bureaucrats take our financial system hostage. it's reminding me what occurred in Germany in the 1930's. We need to stop this insanity, we need the market to function properly without the FEAR of a out of control CFPB.

    Hey Griff,

    Repubs had congress majority since November 2014 it really hasn't been years. Prior to November 2014 the Dems controlled the senate so this is the first time in 8 years Repubs owned both. Also keep in mind you need the presidents approval on any bill to become law. Right now Obama will veto any bill Repubs propose so until we get a new president we won't have Dodd Frank reform.

    Repub's have done nothing because they do not have the Dem. votes to override a veto. The former Speaker of the house appears to have been a drunk. The Pres. knows nothing of how to resolve conflict through compromise and is making law through executive fiat. Hillary is having trouble beating a socialist. What will happen when she comes up against a capital pragmatist? Wait until Trump gets in and then action will be taken.

    I am writing in support of EJ in response to "Griff". I am not sure what "Griff" does for a living but if it was related to helping the American consumer purchase a home he should be ashamed of himself. I think it is highly more likely he is one of the individuals we have to navigate, who add's countless hundred's of dollars more costs to every transaction and who's benefit to anyone but his own self-interest is ZERO.

    The CFPB is as crooked as the Democratic female candidate running for President who has sworn to defend Dodd-Frank. If there was truly justice she would be more concerned with keeping herself, and her partner in crime from spending the rest of their days in Federal prison. Their abuse of public office for their own personal enrichment goes back further than the White Water housing development. This woman has lied, cheated and stolen for so long...she actually believes her own lies. The one that really upset me was the stolen valor. Talking about sniper fire over her head in Bosnia. If it is too dangerous for the President, you send the first lady....really. What's that up in the sky? Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it is Super Hillary to save the day, and her dynamic daughter Chelsea running under sniper fire...I just want to vomit. To have her in charge of our military men and women.....NO WAY!
