In Defense of the CFPB

“These politicized and misleading attacks against the CFPB, orchestrated by the Trump Administration and their allies in Congress, come at the expense of hardworking Americans who have been deceived by companies and would rather not play by the rules,” said Tamara Draut, VP of Policy and Research at Demos. “In the CFPB’s short history, it has returned hundreds of millions of dollars to millions of Americans; Demos is proud to support and defend the CFPB from these meritless attacks. The CFPB’s non-partisan and independent structure is critical to achieving the agency’s core mission–to protect consumers from unfair or deceptive practices and ensure companies are held accountable if they break the law.”
