Credit unions didn't need the CFPB when it was created and don't need it now. We have a board that has handled consumer issues in an exceptional manner.

If the CFPB is necessary then let it function against those institutions that are unfair to the consumer or cost the tax payers money. I would love to see, just once, what the real cost is to run the CFPB … direct cost down to equipment, real estate, labor, benefits, pencils and pens, and the cost of related agencies that have impact due to the existence of the CFPB.
