    As someone banking with Wells Fargo, I have no plans to move my accounts elsewhere. They did something stupid and are now paying for it.

    If the government was unable to create regulations, or chose to eliminate the regulations, we’d all be in big trouble. All of the financial institutions would take advantage of the “free-market” method.

    Don’t forget what happened in 1929.

    See this is why the Republicans want to get rid of the Consumer Protection Agency. It keeps catching business and banks with their hand in the cookie jar. They want to be able to burn and pillage at will.

    And we’ll go back to “let the buyer beware” with no repercussion to the seller.

    Boy, have you ever got things backwards. First, Wells Fargo is not paying for anything, You, the customer, is paying for everything. The fines, the golden parachutes, the million dollar take home pays, the bonuses (boni?), everything.
    Second, government was a lot better in managing excesses in banking and industry until Saint Ronney loosened every possible regulation. Ever since then, the rich got richer, the rest lost.

    Regan has been gone for over a quarter of century, there has been two Democratic Presidents since then and Obama has been creating regulations, over 80 thousand pages in 2015 alone. If you need to blame this on Regan, than yeah, you got special needs. Sorry you’re wrong.

    You are right about the customers, they are paying for it, in lower interest in savings and IRA accounts and then higher interest rates in loans.

    If only we could get rid of regulations on the banks, then we could get back to lining the rich’s pockets with the few crumbs the poor have left. This is the Right-wing utopia. Let the rich funnel up all the money and let the poor pull themselves up by their boot straps, all their whining is bad for business.

    Some deterrent! Three days profits in fines won’t stop any amount of corruption. Only forfeiture and prison on the part of the guilty will do that – if enforced. As Robert Peel (eponym of the “bobbies”) said, it is not the severity, but certainty of punishment that deters crime.

    Great comment. That’s the trouble with the super rich. They can commit almost any crime and they know they can buy their way out cheap.

    Dumped Wells Fargo several decades ago, then B of A, because the took ultimate advantage of the advantages to them from the changes the REAGAN administration made in banking REGULATIONS, not “laws”.

    You’ll notice there are no comments from Republicans/Fox “news” viewers or any of the so-called ‘conservatives’ expressing outrage over Wells Fargo’s illegal activities.


    It’s their belief that their WOO WOO chant at Trump rallies invalidates all of Elizabeth Warren’s charges against Trump and her charges against Wells Fargo.

    I’m for “Hell’s Farrago.”

    But should Sen. Warren end up in Hell to answer for her sins, see this Q and A.
