I support S. 205 ("A bill to replace the Director of the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection with a") because...I believe a quorum of members, rather than one chairman, can represent the best solution to a potentially contentious position and the roles it manages.

I oppose S. 205: Responsible Consumer Financial Protection Regulations Act of 2013 because...no one ever built a statue to a committee. If we, as American citizens, deserve the rights and protection of such a group that group should be headed by an individual and not some committee made up from special interest groups. No committee in Washington gets anything done, they just talk and argue. One person who watches and gives the commands. Who is also ultimately responsible for the decisions being made is much better and more American than any committee.

I oppose S. 205 ("A bill to replace the Director of the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection with a") because the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection is a taxpayer dollar rathole that should be abolished. Really, what has this crooked "bureau" ever achieved on behalf of legitimate, working tax payers? Every Democrat and Republican member of the senate should direct ALL attention to a senate budget, not this inconsequential garbage

I oppose S. 205 ("A bill to replace the Director of the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection with a") because one person has handled it forever. Do not want GOP taking over.

I oppose S. 205 ("A bill to replace the Director of the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection with a") because this bureau is a waste of Tax Payer Dollars. Replacing one position with 5 is even more insane. Eliminate the whole bureau and Dodd-Frank!

Eliminates the Consumer Financial Protection Fund and the requirement that the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System transfer funds to the CFPB from the combined earnings of the Federal Reserve System. Authorizes appropriations for FY2013-FY2014. Directs the CFPB, in prescribing a rule under the federal consumer financial laws, to consider the rule's impact on the financial safety or soundness of an insured depository institution.
