The CFPA: How a crusade to protect consumers lost its steam – washingtonpost.com

I’m shocked at how much big money is going into this. And these f*****s are throwing ads up on my site, too. Go ahead and click on one of the CFPA ads if you want to see some really intense astroturf (that’s fake grassroots) marketing.

At a time when the country is deeply divided over the proper role of government, what is Capitol Hill's appetite for a new, independent agency with broad power to police the financial industry and protect consumers from the risky lending practices that contributed so much to the financial crash of 2008?

It looks like they misled some people, and planted others. Altogether, it’s quite impressive. I like how they completely avoid mentioning what CFPA stands for (Consumer Financial Protection Agency).
