Will the federal attitude toward Wall Street evolve?

    She spent too much time on drama on the front end I think, although she certainly made a point!

    No, wait. She made several good points.

    What do you think?

    “The question I really want to ask is about how tough you are; about how much leverage you really have."
    "Tell me a little bit about the last few times you’ve taken the biggest financial institutions on Wall Street all the way to trial.”

    “If a party is unwilling to go to trial either because they’re too timid or they lack resources the consequence is they have a lot less leverage.”

    “If [banks] can break the law and drag in billions in profits and then turn around and settle paying out of those profits, they don’t have that much incentive to follow the law.”

    Senator Warren asked good questions. They didn't want to answer.

    I love how she pointed out that the feds don't have any problem prosecuting individual citizens for much smaller slights...and taking them all the way to jail

    This women is one of the biggest hyppocrites and frauds in the Senate. First off she flat out lied about her phony Native American heritage to get lucrative faculty positions and promotions at universities. She has been accused of plagiarism with her book Pow Wow Chow. She also represented corporate interests as a lawyer that were trying to screw the little guy.

    http://www.nytimes.com/2013/02/17/bu...&smid=tw-share MANY people became rightfully upset about bailouts given to big banks during the mortgage crisis. But it turns out that they are still going on, if more quietly, through the back door. ..Here’s the skinny: Late last Wednesday, the New York Fed said in a court filing that in July it had released Bank of America from all legal claims arising from losses in some mortgage-backed securities the Fed received when the government bailed out the American International Group in 2008. One surprise in the filing, which was part of a case brought by A.I.G., was that the New York Fed let Bank of America off the hook even as A.I.G. was seeking to recover $7 billion in losses on those very mortgage securities. It gets better.
    What did the New York Fed get from Bank of America in this settlement? Some $43 million, it seems, from a small dispute the New York Fed had with the bank on two of the mortgage securities. At the same time, and for no compensation, it released Bank of America from all other legal claims. .....In an interview, Senator Sherrod Brown, Democrat of Ohio, who serves on the Banking Committee, said the New York Fed’s behavior in this case “underscores that the more we learn about these bailouts, gifts and advantages that Wall Street gets, the clearer it becomes that one set of rules applies to the largest megabanks and another set of rules to the smaller financial institutions and the rest of the country.”

    Ms. Warren is the only person to take on this subject so far. Now more comes to light. Sen. Brown has been active also.

    what facts?
    you posted insults and opinions about Elizabeth Warren
    you posted a racist image of Elizabeth Warren
    I didn't call anyone a name...but I did characterize your repeated posts with no agenda other than attack as pathetic...yes I did, because that is my opinion.

    And for someone who calls those who don't agree with you names VERY frequently, you have some pretty thin skin.

    Its a FACT that Elizabeth Warren Claims to be a Cherokee. It is a FACT that other than claiming high cheek bones she cannot show any proof of those claims. It is a FACT that Elizabeth Warren took a slot from a true minority by lying about her ancestry. It is a FACT that her cookbook Pow Wow Chow used recipes that were word for word from other chefs. It is a FACT that Elizabeth Warren wrote a U.S. Supreme Court petition in the 1990s. LTV was reportedly crusading against a Congressional requirement that it pay millions for retirees' health care. It is a FACT that Warren represented Travelers Insurance in its Supreme Court quest to gain immunity from asbestos claims in exchange for creating a fund for victims. So you can claim they are all opinions but you cannot refute any of the above the FACTS.

    Any links, books, or documents proving all the above?

    Is it a fact that Code Pink yawned regarding drone strikes?

    FACT:
    there are many mixed races in this country and their race mixture is not always evident by just looking at them...duh
    nobody has to prove their ethnic roots to the general public, especially when the questions of race are irrelevant to the discussion
    many cookbooks contain recipes that can be found in other cookbooks
    most people have other work history with different goals and objectives than they did before becoming politicians

    again, you have posted primarily opinions and insults of EW...

    whatever...you don't like her, okay...why not let it go?

    The discussion is really about the attitude toward Wall Street and whether or not our congress might actually hold them accountable. The fact that EW brought it up very directly in the committee meeting was the ONLY reason she was part of the discussion.

    The unethical and illegal behavior of the Wall Street Bankers should be investigated and litigated, IMHO.
