    What did the Bush administration do in response? Did it reverse course and decide to take action to halt this burgeoning scourge?

    Not only did the Bush administration do nothing to protect consumers, it embarked on an aggressive and unprecedented campaign to prevent states from protecting their residents from the very problems to which the federal government was turning a blind eye

    In 2003, during the height of the predatory lending crisis, the OCC invoked a clause from the 1863 National Bank Act to issue formal opinions preempting all state predatory lending laws, thereby rendering them inoperative


    Eliot Spitzer - Predatory Lenders' Partner in Crime


    Regulators and policymakers enabled this process at virtually every turn. Part of the reason they failed to understand the housing bubble was willful ignorance: they bought into the argument that the market would equilibrate itself. In particular, financial actors and regulatory officials both believed that secondary and tertiary markets could effectively control risk through pricing.

    The thread is about Elizabeth Warren & Hillary Clinton, not the housing bubble. You quoted me but I'm not posting about the housing bubble. Thanks.

    It is her brainchild, which is why I called it "her" CFPB and yes, I know she isn't in charge of it (never said she was).

    I don't know how it will pan out. I only know how I think it will pan out. It was intended to help Americans, and in the end, IMO, it will hurt Americans. That's what I've been posting.

    Not sure why you posted this, MG. I never said the meltdown didn't affect me. It affected everyone with investments & a 401K. That has nothing to do with my post, which was asking the other poster how banks "rode roughshod" over him.

    Regulations don't hurt they big banks they way they are hurting the small banks. The small banks don't have the staff to manage the cost of regulations, which is why so many of them are being swallowed up by the larger banks now. That's what I've been posting about.

    The more smaller banks that close, the harder it's going to be for consumers to get credit, and the more powerful the larger banks are going to get.

    That's fine. But your opinion is not fact.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Elizabeth Warren is trying to protect community banks. Part of the reason community banks are shrinking is because they have to compete with the unregulated practices of mammoth banks.

    Banks were heavily regulated for about 50 years. The smaller banks did well. So why would it be different now?

    Of course it isn't fact. It's an opinion. Did I say anything otherwise?
