Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is Big Brother incarnate [Letter]

The federal Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection has no congressional oversight, is supposed to be 10 times larger than the already corrupt IRS, and has no budget ("Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is doing its job," Nov. 9).

This organization powers itself on the fines that it levies. If it needs more money it finds ways to fine more private-sector entities. Under the guise of protection, the CFPB will become Big Brother.

You say this is good? This is going to do far more damage than good to Americans.

Government getting bigger is never the answer. Wake up and smell the communism!
