If the Republican party is good at one thing, it is being able to manipulate poor and middle class people to vote against their interests.

This latest ad from the an extreme right-wing group portrays regular American citizens being denied the loans they so badly seem to need by the evil and corporate Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. The advertisement’s call to action urges viewers to “Tell Congress: Stop the CFPB.”

To an educated American, a regulatory agency which oversees major loans from monstrous banks is a welcome government intervention after the massive housing bubble and Great Recession of 2008, caused by irresponsible lending by banks who knew they could get away with it, which affected Americans nationwide. Republicans, who are married to too-big-to-fail banks and massive corporations are attempting to manipulate vulnerable Americans with their cheesy attack ads.
