Aren't Republicans despicable when they do this to Americans? That's why we need to get rid of McConnell and all others ASAP. Don't allow them to remove Consumer Protections that we so vitally need.

McConnell trying to sneak a vote gutting major consumer protection rule this week

"Since it seems like Republicans are going to fail, again—on Obamacare repeal this week—they're working on another way to screw the American people. And they're using the cover of Trumpcare to do it, convinced that they can sneak a vote in to nullify a key rule from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau while everyone is watching for a Trumpcare vote."
"Republican leaders are whipping to secure the votes to overturn a rule CFPB finalized in July, which would protect financial companies from class-action lawsuits and deny consumers a day in court. The rule is among the most consequential actions the CFPB has taken since its founding."
“This rush toward a vote in the Senate is a cynical attempt to roll back an important consumer protection before anyone gets straight answers from Equifax and Wells Fargo about the damage they’ve done to the financial lives of millions of Americans,” said Lisa Donner, executive director of Americans for Financial Reform."
