Description:

Today, Joint Economic Committee Democrats launched the seventh episode of “Opportunity Agenda,” a podcast that furthers the conversation on how to build an economic future where all American families have a fair shot at getting ahead. Episode 7, “Examining What’s at Stake With the CFPB,” looks at the actions that the Trump administration have taken at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) that are harming consumers, instead of protecting them as the agency is charged to do. The podcast comes ahead of today’s Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs hearing on the president’s nominee for CFPB director, Kathy Kraninger.
