The systematic dismantling of government protections in favor of corporate interests is the most underrated scandal of the Trump Era (is this what his supporters wanted??). Mulvaney is going to do to the CFPB what Scott Pruitt has done to the EPA.

But at this point, we're getting into political ideology. Some people 'legitimately' believe that the free market should be able to loot the environment, and that banks should be able to engage in predatory business practices -- that the consumer and environmental agencies should just be quiet or be dismantled.

Too bad this discussion can't be had, or is greatly overshadowed by Trump's daily antics of racism, bigotry, and bombastic lie-sprees. It's almost as if he's creating a distraction while government is being dismantled.
