Don’t Let Mick Mulvaney Undermine the CFPB

Show Your Support for Strong CFPB Enforcement Tools to Hold Bad Actors Accountable

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) was created to hold financial companies accountable for illegal actions and to make consumer voices heard.

But the temporary head of the agency, Mick Mulvaney, has made it clear that he favors Big Banks over ripped-off consumers. He's seeking to blunt the tools — formally known as civil investigative demands — which are used by the CFPB to investigate financial corporations accused of abusing their customers.

Mulvaney is having the CFPB collect feedback from the "public" about these demands, but the people most likely to know what a "civil investigative demand" is are the lawyers, lobbyists and executives at the very financial companies that could be investigated by the CFPB.

We believe Mulvaney wants to use their feedback as an excuse to handcuff the CFPB and prevent it from doing its job.

That's where you come in.

Add your voice and explain why you believe the CFPB should be able to use all of the tools available to it, in order to protect consumers.
