Consumer Protection

I’m all about protecting consumers and God knows they need it. But I’m confused… don’t we already have a federal agency whose primary responsibility is consumer protection? AKA: The FTC! Wondering how these two agencies are going to peacefully coexist and whether they’ll play nice in the sandbox together? I’m also curious to see how the increased federal regulation will play out on companies who are already in heavily regulated industries and how regulation from two competing agencies, with essentially the same interests, and their own politically motivated agendas, is going to be dealt with at the corporate level, especially when the regulatory direction from both agencies differs. Should be interesting!
