Posted By Common Sense Wednesday, December 06 2017 at 1:34 PM People would probably feel like some felt when BHO planted political operatives in the IRS.... Posted By andkel Wednesday, December 06 2017 at 10:05 AM Hmmm. How would people feel if DJT planted political operatives in the IRS to oversee audits? There is a reason why some government functions are traditionally handled by a meritocracy and not political hacks, though Richard Nixon might disagree. Posted By ProudAmericanBanker Wednesday, December 06 2017 at 9:13 AM So now Senator Warren is wishing she had agreed to a bi-partisan board. Did she really believe Republicans would never win the White House? News flash: the world ain’t flat, everything comes around. Posted By RLW Wednesday, December 06 2017 at 9:11 AM The CFPB was created and staffed not as an independent governmental agency, but as a political organization with a specific liberal agenda. Several articles/interviews from former CFPB staff have clearly established this fact. Therefore, to fix the inherent political bias that currently exists in the agency's staff, new political appointees must be inserted into the agency at all levels. Mulvaney is absolutely doing the right thing. Posted By Pourquoi Wednesday, December 06 2017 at 9:09 AM Pairing up "political" individuals with "professionals" is admittedly odd, but a necessary measure to take the reins in an agency deliberately structured to be unaccountable, and clearly staffed from inception with management and employees with a certain political point of view. Authority in any organization is supposed to flow from leadership down. Unfortunately, those on the Left seem to have forgotten that "...elections have consequences." And "independent" does not mean "omnipotent." Posted By truecommunitybanker Wednesday, December 06 2017 at 8:29 AM Glad he's shaking up this out of control monster.
