    they can't pass legislation. so they have chosen a more weaselly route.

    Hence, why so many are objecting to the agency. No agency should be created with regulatory freedom to place citizens under its rules without those rules being passed laws. Thats why oversight is needed for any agency created within the executive. As I said previously, I dont think Dodd/Frank has a leg to stand on, especially with Obama circumventing the wording of the actual law which states that the chairman must be confirmed. Not recess appointed but confirmed.

    WTF are you talking about? Every agency promulgates rules. That's why we have the Administrative Procedures Act.

    We are having fun with this here, but otherwise look for it to be back-burner. Obama may trot it out, but again, who will care ? It doesn't help anyone pay a bill.
    When the agency is finally up and running it will help people pay their bills, by policing predatory lending. It's obvious why the GOP is so dead set against it.

    LOL ...... like anything "Dodd-Frank" is going to help anyone pay a bill. They were the two political cronies most behind the housing bubble for chrissakes.

    Can't make this **** up.

    You seem to make up a lot of useless ad hominem crap, that's for sure.

    Dodd-Frank are fair game. Look up Dodd and Countrywide. Frank and Fannie and his boyfriend, and "no" not his boyfriend's fannie.

    This is frustrating.

    And now the pathetic homophobic prejudice. You're pissing away what little credibility you may have had.

    Why don't you just call me a racist while you are at it ? Kiss my ass, btw. My brother is as gay as a $3 bill. And I have loved him for over 50 years. I have forgotten more about the travails of being gay than you will ever learn.
