Congressman Arrington Talks CFPB and Possible AT&T-Time Warner Merger
Monday on KFYO Mornings, Congressman Jodey Arrington joined Matt Martin and Rob Snyder to talk about recent events in the news such as the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the Dodd Frank Act, the possible AT&T-Time Warner merger, and Net Neutrality.
When asked about the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the congressman expressed the problems with it and the Dodd Frank Act in general, saying, "The problem with it, other than that it's a big expansion of the government, is that its unaccountable," he went on to say, "This is a constitutional abomination. It ought to be abolished."
Congressman Arrington also spoke on the federal judge reviewing the possible AT&T-Time Warner merger, and the risks that would come with such a deal. Arrington had this to say, "I think they should look at it just like the Monsanto-Bayer Crop and other conglomerations consolidating assets in an industry that already has too few players competing for consumer business. I think it's appropriate for these reviews to take place."
