Quotes

...imagine they can work in conjunction with each other and I think that's part of the challenge is trying to piece together everything," Jun said. "I don't know if this is something that will be seamless, but I'm sure the CFPB will consult with state regulators who may be closer to what's going on."
...It's not quite "Hold on, I need to do some insider trading with Bud Fox" old, but it's pretty old. Zach Carter: "He is one of the most powerful people in Washington.

The kind teenagers in the late 1990s deployed to tell their parents that no, they weren't partying at Jeff's house when they were, in fact, partying at Jeff's house. 'I bought 10 of them in case they run out,' says Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y ) , laughing and extending the black phone across the table to be examined. It starts to buzz in his hand, the LED display flashing excitedly. 'It's Harry.' He flips the phone open and we go offoff the record." [ HuffPost ]
