Elizabeth Warren vs. House GOP, round 3

WASHINGTON (CNNMoney) –– Elizabeth Warren is expected to face another round of tough questioning about the consumer financial protection bureau at a House hearing on Thursday, her third trip to Capitol Hill this year.

House GOP lawmakers want to curb the powers of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) and have called Warren to "finish answering questions" that some lawmakers didn't get a chance to pose to her publicly during a tense May committee hearing.

    Elizabeth Warren is extremely intelligent, smart, fast and with so much class and style, that having to take questions
    from a bunch of ultra right wing. corny, irrelevant old farts from the GOP with no regard or understanding of normal
    people is a total waste of time. Obama, if he ever had any balls in the first place. should have made her a fully
    fledged Secretary. Then again, he should have done a lot of things.

    Please keep at it Republicans, we don't need another Obozo appointee mandating how we live our lives. We need freedom from government and all we get from this inept, incompetent, corrupt, union toady president is more hypocritical restrictions on us.

    Let's face it, the GOP is anti-consumer, and pro business, even if that means that business abuses consumers.

    This is an area, where the GOP look like criminals.

    Regarding the CPB, the fascist Issa said "whether or not the American people can feel comfortable that what was envisioned in Dodd-Frank is indeed what they want"

    We know what we want moron. We don't want Wall St. running like a casino and gambling with OUR money. Wake up and smell the coffee jerk.

    The Rethugs are very afraid of Warren because they don't understand women who actually have a brain and use it. Not only is shebis smart and funny but she actually wantsnto help everyone not just the 2% of the population!
    Warren can run circles around their "girls"

This guys have the shortest memory on earth! is not just the other day they tanked the economy through various un-regulated industries?. But as long as they are loyal to their masters aka lobbyist, they gonna try to screw the middle class in any form. To the Republicans free market means " Rob Peter and Pay Paul the lobbyist at K street!

    The Republicans will never stop trying to deregulate everything to maintain their unfettered Greed they had under Bush.

    Deregulation of about everything is one of the key reasons that we are in this Debacle now.
