Conservative group to run television ads attacking CFPB

The Wall Street Journal reports:

Most Americans have probably never heard of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Many will learn about it on Tuesday night when millions tune in to watch the next Republican presidential debate.

The American Action Network, a right-leaning advocacy group that has spent heavily to elect Republicans, plans to blanket the Fox Business airwaves during the debate, which is co-sponsored by The Wall Street Journal, with a new ad criticizing the agency created in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis.

According to the article, the ad will run seven times during the debate and all week on Washington, DC cable stations. "The whole campaign has a $500,000 price tag and could be the opening salvo of a much broader fight over the impact of regulations on everyday Americans."
