April 27, 2014 6:41 PM Warren & Springsteen Speak the Same Language

By Martin Longman

It’s a slow news day, so I thought I’d put a little Elizabeth Warren to music:

“I’m worried the power in the financial services industry. I’m worried about the fact that cops were taken off the beat in financial services, and that these guys were allowed to paint a bull’s eye on the backs of American families,” Warren said of banking industry executives. “They crashed the economy, and then they got bailed out.”
“And what bothers me now is they still strut around Washington, they block regulations they don’t want and roll over agencies whenever they can,” Warren added.
She went on to say it will continue to be a central issue for her during her time in the Senate, but wouldn’t say if former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s actions toward banking executives would determine whether or not Warren backs her in 2016.

I know I feel better. How about you?
