Richard Cordray should have never been working on the public dime in the first place

Nov. 15, 2017, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement reacting to the resignation of Consumer Financial Protection Bureau director Richard Cordray:

“Victory! Americans for Limited Government named Richard Cordray as one of Washington, D.C.’s worst Obama holdover zombies and now he’s gone. Richard Cordray should have never been working on the public dime in the first place, but I’m pleased that he will soon no longer be able to wreak regulatory havoc on the American people and the economy. The Trump Administration needs to not only find a suitable replacement for Cordray who will put consumer protection over self-promotion, but immediately put a freeze on all harmful CFPB issued regulations. I call on Congress to finish the job by continuing to use the Congressional Review Act to undo the incredible damage the rogue CFPB has already inflected on taxpayers and the economy.”
