Barney Frank needs to follow Charlie Rangel's lead.
07:16 PM on 03/03/2010
Why?

Barney Frank was at "ground zero" of the collapse of Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and the entire mortgage and banking fiasco.

So will we ever see the demise of the likes of :
1) "NMHC - The “National Mortgage Help Center” is not affiliated in any way with any government program. The National Mortgage Help Center is a for profit business"
2) Cash4Gold?
3) Debt elimination services
And the other scams on the prowl for the gullible and uninformed.
That would be protecting the consumer.

I can now ad Barney Frank to my list of heroes for this month, along with Rep. Anthony Weiner

Go Barney.

I'm hopeful that this means that the CFPA or whatever might, just maybe, have some teeth.

Rep. Barney Frank is NOT a Dem Senator as suggested by the title of this story on the main page ... !

Even though Wells Fargo has treated me fairly well, I plan to move my money to a local community bank sometime in the near future. The plain fact is that monstrosities like Chase, Citi, BofA and others ARE too big to fail and in the future without new regulations they'll bring us to the brink again.

Since Congress seems unwilling to reinstate Glass-Steagall or repeal Gramm–Leach–Bliley to prevent bank holding companies from owning other financial companies and since the DOJ appears reluctant to use existing anti-trust law to bring these bloodsucking institutions to heel, it's up to the American people to do it themselves.

unfortunately people are more worried about watching the jersey shore oscar skit for hurt locker...

Noone cares...everyone is broke, but noone wants to stand up and fight back....

WE OWN THIS COUNTRY....but its like your house...if you allow people to come in and wander around and eat your food, but you never put a stop to it, they will just eat you out of your house and your home....

We let lawyers and bankers run our country, which are the two most dishonest professions for the most part.....Why?

well, I did move my money from chase to a credit union and I have never looked back....if people refuse to pay their credit card bills, then the banks will be forced to make changes....but noone wants to "ruin their precious credit".......this country has everyone convinced that you need to have great credit......You really dont, unless you want to buy stuff you cant afford.......

We need to say forget these banks, they hold no power over us and fight back....if the dems don't step up, then get them out...go green or indy

now that doesn't mean replace them with a repub....break up the two party system...why does a congressman from florida, because he is a dem, have to do exactly what pelosi says or face punishment? doesn't he or she represent his or her district, not pelosi's? We need to give independent thought back to the people that represent us.

I can't remember the last time congress actually helped the people with-out an eye to their big campaign doners.

He's not, but whatever the Senate passes on financial regulation, must go through his office in the House Financial Services Committee.

I just got a FOUR PAGE FULLY SMALLTYPED explanation of the new rules on my Chase credit card account which I had closed (I've almost paid off the balance). So instead of legalese they are giving us 4 times as much to read. It took me 30 minutes to get through it (I was determined). Much of it was repetative and probably could have been put on one page. The bank already knows a large number of people won't read the whole thing. Just another trick.

Come on Congress and President Obama. LISTEN UP-WE NEED PROTECTIONS!!. People are being lied to, tricked, cheated, ripped off, defrauded out of their hard earned money. The financial institutions are ruining our good credit ratings just for their greed. My credit rating has dropped 50 points just because of their tactics not because I am a bad credit risk.

Senator Frank-keep up the good work-keep your voice loud and clear in the media-show these shysters for what they are. Please help we the American People.

Sorry-I forgot he was a Representative. I guess I was wishful thinking he was a Senator. Maybe next election.

I've been trying to reason a moral distinction between the Wall Street/banker crowd and, oh, say the Watts or Detroit rioters of years ago. So far I have been unsuccessful.
