Democrats (HEART) Elizabeth Warren

Washington (CNNMoney) - House Democrats are calling on President Obama to appoint Elizabeth Warren to run the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau during the next Senate recess.

Eighty-nine House Democrats have sent the president a letter dismissing a Senate Republican threat to block any nomination of a director to the new consumer bureau. They urged the president to "nominate Professor Warren as the CFPB's first director anyway," the letter released Thursday stated.

    There is no legitimate reason to block ANY and every nominee.

    And this is why the GOPer will keep preventing the Senate from entering recess. Just watch. They and their corporate masters are TERRIFIED of Warren and the idea that consumers might gain a louder voice in the corporate-bought bureaucratic din that isn't beholden to Goldman or some other giant player in the "all your governments are bleong to us" game....who is actually legitimately fighting to see that we are protected from all the unscrupulous, usurious, almost fraudulent practices they use to suck us dry and that EVERYONE knows they are doing. Read the fine print, GOP: go to hell.

    Why are the Republicans so against this woman? Could it be that she is untanished and would be an unyeilding proponent of consumers and not big business...? ummmm

    Let them mount the filibuster first, then make the recess appointment.

    The story should have said "Eighty-nine FLAMING LIBERAL House Democrats". The rest of the Democrats and the Republicans know that Warren is radioactive.
