U.S. Senator Ben Sasse, a member of the Senate Banking and Judiciary Committees, released the following statement after the Supreme Court ruled that the structure of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is unconstitutional. 

“The CFPB acts like an unchecked fourth branch of government, and it’s clear that there’s no such clause for its creation in the Constitution. Today’s decision says that the head of the organization should be removable – which is great, but when I read the Constitution, it’s pretty clear that the CFPB shouldn’t exist to begin with. We should stop letting unaccountable bureaucrats skirt the law of this land."
