(Washington D.C.) – House Democratic Caucus Chairman Joe Crowley (D-NY) issued the following statement after Republicans voted to dismantle consumer protections:

“Republicans are once again putting corporate special interests above working Americans. The GOP claimed that today’s vote was about reducing paperwork and red-tape. In reality, it was about making it easier for Wall Street to increase their profits on the backs of hard-working consumers. This is simply unacceptable. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is a vital resource, and its role as the safeguard of the American consumer should not just be protected but strengthened.”
