“They [many Democrats and consumer groups] want to take consumer protection away from banking regulators and consolidate it in a new, independent agency with the power to write and enforce rules….

The video, running on Funnyordie.com, was created with Americans for Financial Reform, which represents more than 200 consumer groups and unions that have coalesced to fight for financial reform. (For a list see links.sfgate.com/ZJIQ.)

Opposing an independent consumer protection agency are industry heavyweights including the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, American Bankers Association and Financial Services Roundtable.

Some smaller business groups, such as the U.S. women’s and U.S. Hispanic chambers of commerce have aligned with consumer groups to support the new agency.”
