"Senate Banking Committee Chairman Christopher Dodd is considering scrapping the idea of creating a Consumer Financial Protection Agency... Mr. Dodd's offer is conditional, however: Republicans must agree to create a beefed-up consumer-protection division within another federal agency"
You mean these agencies?
"U.S. Bank Examiners Faulted for Oversight at Failed Lenders"
Remember Senator Dodd was the one who introduced the Depositor Protection Act of 2009 that essentially gave $500 billion to the currently insolvent FDIC?
Banks are about to hand out $145 billion to their employees this year.
Look up TLGP and you will see where that $145 billion is coming from.
So much for protecting depositors, huh?
