As has been mentioned before, I'm not sure what is not understood about this being the CONSUMER FINANCIAL Protection Bureau. Would the same people who complain about the Bureau's authority would find it acceptable to limit the Department of Justice's ability to take on anything other than murder cases? To take away the FDA's authority to regulate anything other than food? To restrict the FCC from monitoring anything except radio broadcasting? If government agencies did not have jurisdiction over the fields their very name includes, we would have a million agencies and a whole new host of complaints.
