Elizabeth Warren vs. House Republicans, round 2

WASHINGTON (CNNMoney) - White House adviser Elizabeth Warren's reward for dealing with a cantankerous House committee last week: Another even longer day with many of the same congressmen.

House Oversight Committee chair Darrell Issa asked Warren to come back for more questioning after the tense hearing, which ended abruptly when Warren left due to a previously scheduled event in her capacity setting up the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB).

    McHenry was proven to be full of sheeet by emails that were released about the scheduling of the hearing. Won't see those on CNN or any other "liberal" ""news" media outlet trying to perpetuate the controversy though.

    Consumer Protection Bureau? Oh, no. Republicans cannot allow something like that to come to life. I think it should. We need something to offset the Corporation Protection Bureau, a.k.a. The Republican Party. Coming to the table with the pre-condition that any and every nominee selected to head this revamped agency is below bad politics.
    For those of you out there who feel that Obama and Democrats have not done anything to offer a solution for Medicare, allow me to refresh your memories. Republicans spent the entire year of 2010 pointing out to us how the Affordable Care Act would change Medicare (Democrats said it would keep it solvent by cutting $500B over a decade) into something horrible that they had named 'ObamaCare'. The Ryan Plan offered an alternative Medicare solution in the form of a budget that does not balance for 40 years or more. Democrats do not need to offer an alternative to the Ryan Plan that is sinking the Republican Party. That would be offering Republicans a life line out of their mess.

    Republican men are afraid of honest, strong, women. In fact, they hate all women, that's why they want to take away women's rights to choose for themselves how to live their lives.

    I hate republicans.

    The juxtaposition of Jaberwocky Barbie to Warren is truly, TRULY a telling exercise.

    FINALLY, a story that has nothing to do with that imbecilic moron from AK!!!!!!!!!!!!! Can anyone stop the freaking' madness???
    That being said, Elizabeth Warren DOES WANT to work for the little people and the milddle class. She is witty, smart, highly educated and she IS THE ONE THAT NEEDS ATTENTION because she is trying to do something productive for us, the vanishing middle class.
    We need more strong with REAL ideas that will help not divide the country.
    I have not commented to one single story about that retard from AK (and cnn has become ad nauseum about her again). I am sick and tired or reading, seeing and, if we can't mute the TV fast enough, hear that screeching half brain dead bozo.
    We all know how much she is hated and disliked. Maybe not paying attention to another story about her will make the madness stop once and for all!!!!!!

    No, let Obama and his merry band of liberals put even more regulation on the mortgage and banking industry. Make loans so expensive and cumbersome to get that only the wealthy can afford to buy a home. That is what she is doing if you can't realize the impact of further regulation. When you look back at the results of the Obama Administration, see who really benefits. Who is getting rich now? Wall Street and the bankers. Thanks, Obama.

    They're terrified of her. If they were concerned about America like she is instead of their uber wealthy owners who care only about themselves, she wouldn't scare them so much. GO Elizabeth Warren!!

    I develop more and more respect every day for the Washington Democratic Spin Machine. These guys are not rookies. They are professionals, the best we have ever seen. My point is that they have regular citizens across the country screaming for higher taxes and more regulation on loans. Who is benefiting? Wall Street and Pennsylvania Avenue. But the people on Main Street are doing all of the work. This is precious and I take my hat off to the brilliant DNC!
