Bachus Says Consumer Bureau Proposal Isn’t Attack on Motherhood

U.S. Representative Spencer Bachus, the chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, said his proposal to change the leadership of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is “hardly a radical concept.”

“You’d think I’m attacking motherhood or apple pie,” Bachus, an Alabama Republican, said today as he defended the legislation at an Independent Community Bankers of America conference in Washington.
