Keep our consumer cop on the financial beat

Dear senator,

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau took over as the nation's chief consumer financial regulator just five years ago, following the second-largest financial crisis in our history. Already, it has recovered nearly $12 billion for more than 29 million victims of unfair practices by wrongdoers ranging from big banks to small debt collectors.

We need Congress to allow the CFPB to do its job, not betray American consumers in favor of Wall Street and other financial interests. Please oppose any proposals to change the CFPB's structure, remove its independent funding, or take away any of its powers to protect consumers.
