If Republicans hate the current makeup of the CFPB, they don’t appear to share a hatred for Director Rich Cordray. Press reports suggest that there is little or no personal animus against the current Director, but those warm and fuzzy feelings do not equate to a thumbs up vote on the Senate floor. "I will compliment you," said Oklahoma Republican Tom Coburn to Rich Cordray. "I think you've done a wonderful job so far." The issue is , of course, the CFPB's autonomy. Republicans intend to block a confirmation vote unless changes are made to the CFPB's structure and the bureau is subject to the Congressional appropriations process. Adding fuel to the fire, Senator Elizabeth Warren, who told the press that any move against Cordray and the CFPB was bad for consumers. "The American people,” she said, “deserve a Congress that worries less about helping big banks, and more about helping regular people who have been cheated on mortgages, on credit cards, on student loans and on credit reports."
