    This should be very interesting to watch how it plays out.

    It is part of the oppose anything Obama backs. After all the article says that Republicans like Cordray. Now do you think Cordray will be sympathetic with Republican ideas seeing how they have opposed him .... even though they like him?

    Slight problem...

    Congress is not in recess.

    "Republicans note that the U.S. Constitution stipulates that the House and Senate cannot adjourn for longer than three days without the consent of the other body – agreed to by a concurrent adjournment resolution. Neither chamber has passed an adjournment resolution, and instead both have been holding pro-forma sessions every three days."

    Just another unconstitutional power grab by Obama.
