New York (CNNMoney) – One of the toughest critics of Wall Street will soon be policing it.
Massachusetts Senator-elect Elizabeth Warren has been tapped to take a seat on the Senate Banking Committee, the Senate Democrats' steering committee announced Wednesday.
It's about time someone was named to this Committe that has the guts to police them. The banking industry ran amuck during the Bush years with a committee that was nothing more than a rubber stamp for them. Just look where that got us!
Warren put up a hard fight, but she got there and she is exactly where she belongs. Keep up the fight.
Now this is what I call policing and Wall Street will hate it but quess what the new sheriffs in town and republicans you too have been put on notice,straighten out or hang it up!!
All the pubbers on that committee who so brutally fought against her to head the CFPA will now have to deal with her as an equal. Harry and Obama are still chuckling over this one. In DC, this is called payback.
That should cut Obama off from his donors, for certain.
Precisely what is needed: a no-nonsense lady on the SBC kicking butts and taking down names.
Everybody has a price...
About time. Great appointment for Warren.
This makes sense to me because she knows what is going in the banking industry. Why wouldn't she be there? If the banking industry doesn't want her there, then there is a reason to have her there.
Thank God she's New York's problem.
Good. The people need a voice, not a puppet on a string. she'll do good for the people.
I am glad she won the Senate race in Massachusetts. I'll be even happier oif she gets appointed to the banking committee and others she is more than qualified and will make things happen for the good of the nation as whole theu commonsense activity.
Go get 'em, Senator Warren!!!!!!!!!!!
That brings commitment and guarantees the protection of investors in the capital and money market.
