Republicans are blocking a vote to confirm Richard Cordray as director of The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau? Is there some reason they don't want the CFPB to be able to do their job?

Oh really?? And what of the Demo-Rats constant stonewalling of President Bush's judicial nominees??
Lifetime appointees vs. someone who will serve another 15 months perhaps? Is protecting consumers controversial? I know Bush's judges were.

It's extremely controviersial when said czar is going to completely collapse the financial sector. And Bush's judges were not controversial, But to a Leftninny, any Conservative is "controversial"

How about some factual information about the Republican's actions...instead of a campaign commercial?

Knock yourself out.
Okay, but you could have found out the answer to your question quite easily...instead of posting your video.

McConnell said on the Senate floor that Republicans will not back off their demands for structural changes at the agency.

Republicans have demanded that the agency's leadership be changed to a board instead of a single director, the agency's budget be subject to congressional approval, and other financial regulators have a greater say in the agency's oversight of banks.

"We'll insist on serious reforms to bring accountability and transparency to the agency before we consider any nominee to run it," McConnell said.

White House spokesman Jay Carney said the Senate should and would confirm Cordray.

The agency will open its doors Thursday, the one-year anniversary of Obama's signing of the Dodd-Frank financial oversight law.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, a business lobby group, said Cordray would have too much power in his new job.

"The CFPB's structure makes its director one of the most unaccountable officials Washington has ever seen," David Hirschmann, president and CEO of the Chamber's Center for Capital Markets Competitiveness, said in a statement.

"The director is the only Senate-confirmed position at this new federal agency, putting unprecedented powers to regulate a large part of our economy in the hands of a single individual with virtually no checks and balances."

Yeah, but I posted a video instead. Don't like leave.

You could have posted your response like an adult. Instead of whining about the OP.
