The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is supposed to "Restrict unfair, deceptive, or abusive acts or practices" according to its website. Also, they are all about "ensuring that consumers get the information they need to make the financial decisions they believe are best for themselves and their families—that prices are clear up front, that risks are visible, and that nothing is buried in fine print."

Now we come to the Affordable Care Act. Did President Obama use unfair, deceptive or abusive practices when he said, again and again, "If you like your plan you can keep it, period. No one will take it away?"

Is it right that an entire generation, the young, should in effect pay twice the cost of the value of their plans? And isn't it unfair and deceptive to promulgate the idea that this is a square deal for them?

And for one of the most important financial products any American uses, health insurance, the government has caused mass cancellations and has actively failed to let consumers "get the information they need" with the spectacular failure of healthcare.gov.

Private enterprise would be nailed to a cross for the lousy, shoddy practices and sheer bad faith employed in the design and selling of Obamacare.

For goodness sake, can we start to work on reforming the Health Care Reform?

Someone, (like limbaugh or hannity) should start a petition to the CFPB to investigate the ACA, congress and executive branch.

I can't say I'm surprised that the ACA is already a massive failure. 1800F1uckyo!

That's the eternal problem - who watches the watchers?
