It was reported three days ago that the GOP-led House of Representatives had voted to kill guidance from a consumer protection agency aimed at preventing lenders from charging minority consumers more on car loans — obviously a discriminatory practice. Republicans don’t care, of course; they just want to diminish government regulations. All hail Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., for calling out those who would deny that discrimination takes place in this realm. “This resolution is one part of a widespread Republican effort to make it more difficult to hold financial institutions responsible,” said Waters.
