Acting Consumer Financial Protection Bureau director Mick Mulvaney has told Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., that he doesn’t plan on responding to her questions about the agency, and said it’s her fault that he is not required to answer.

Mulvaney, a conservative who was an outspoken critic of the bureau during his time as a congressman, told Warren in a letter sent Wednesday that the structure of the agency, which she helped design, shields him from accountability.

“I encourage you to consider the possibility that the frustration you are experiencing now, and that which I had a few years back, are both inevitable consequences of the fact that the Dodd-Frank… Act insulates the Bureau from virtually any accountability to the American people through their elected representatives…

    Double-edged swords always seem to surprise Progs.
    It’s like they think the rules should change when the other team has the ball.
    Heck, they go into bad-sport mode if the other team actually gets the ball.

    Of course, the usual suspects were outraged by the truth.

    And the stupidity of the progs knows no bounds. I looked through the comments on the original article and the leftists were outraged at the actions of Mulvaney instead of understanding the point he was trying to make about the bureau.
