The Democrat Party is the party of big, controlling, obtrusive government. They want to grow government at the expense of the individual at all costs, and therefore it’s no wonder that all bureaucracies overwhelmingly tend to direct their political donations to progressive leftist Democrats who will grow their anti-freedom agencies, lining the pockets of leech-like bureaucrats on the backs of the American taxpayer.
But one government agency, created by the Obama Regime in order to take over the financial industry and squish small banks out of business to reward Obama’s big Wall Street bank contributors who are the only banks that can afford the massive compliance departments necessary to navigate the unnecessary red tape, stand out as being the most partisan of all.
As the Washington Free Beacon reported on Wednesday, employees of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) donated 100 percent of their political contributions to politicians who are members of the Democrat Party:
The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is the most partisan agency in the federal government in terms of donations to candidates, according to campaign finance data.
Employees at the CFPB, which was created by the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, contributed nearly $50,000 during the 2016 campaign with all of that money going to aid Hillary Clinton or her rival, the insurgent socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., VT). Agency employees made more than 300 donations during the campaign. Not one went to a Republican candidate.
Rep. Sean Duffy (R., Wis.), a frequent critic of the agency, said that it is no surprise that the agency would contribute to the Democratic campaign. Republicans have tried to reduce the scope of the bureau’s broad regulatory power since Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.), one of the most liberal lawmakers in the country, oversaw its creation.“CFPB employees fell over each other to give money to Hillary because she supported CFPB’s desire to remain in the shadows and unaccountable to the American people,” Duffy said. “No one is shocked that Washington bureaucrats would donate to the candidate who promised to maintain and expand onerous Dodd-Frank regulations that crush our community banks and local credit unions.”
Not shockingly, the government bureau did not return a request for comment from the Washington Free Beacon about the donations. So goes the circle of government. Government employees turn over a portion of their paycheck to grow…government, which in turn passes policies that grow…government — rinse and repeat.
Fortunately, President-elect Donald Trump said that he would dismantle Dodd-Frank, the gargantuan 2,300-page law that created the ill-named Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, or CFPB, a campaign promise that he must keep.
It’s no wonder that the wealthiest three counties in America are suburbs of Washington, D.C., the center of our federal government. Do you think that is a coincidence?
