Senator Gregg was part of a panel on CNBC covering the newly passed senate financial reform bill. What follows is 4 minutes and 17 seconds that you will want to hear. Sen. Gregg covers the problems with this bill including Freddie and Fannie not being addressed, the creation of the Freddie and Fannie debacle by Congress, and the Bureau of Consumer Protection.
…and the failure to take on Freddie and Fannie is almost malfeasance of a criminal level by the Congress, I mean the fact that we would leave on the table, well it’s like having a room, not having an elephant in it, but having the entire herd in it and saying the herd doesn’t exist.
…because this is not about lending for the purposes of having strong credit and good credit going out, it’s about lending to accomplish social justice purpose. That’s what the consumer agency is all about. This is a massive expansion on the agenda of the left in the area of domestic industrial policy.
