VIDEO. Elizabeth Warren Stumps A Bunch Of Bank Regulators

This lady has "The Right Stuff" to bring up a vital question which no one has had the intestinal fortitude to "bring up" being WHY ARE THESE BANKS NEVER TRIED IN A COURT OF LAW? Seems as though it is simpler to "bribe the investigators" pay big fines rather than get to the danged TRUTH! [VKD]

"In it, Warren replies to the charge that asking the rich to pay more taxes is "class warfare," pointing out that no one grew rich in America without depending on infrastructure paid for by the rest of society, stating:[42][43]

There is nobody in this country who got rich on his own. Nobody. ... You moved your goods to market on the roads the rest of us paid for; you hired workers the rest of us paid to educate; you were safe in your factory because of police forces and fire forces that the rest of us paid for. You didn't have to worry that marauding bands would come and seize everything at your factory, and hire someone to protect against this, because of the work the rest of us did. Now look, you built a factory and it turned into something terrific, or a great idea. God bless. Keep a big hunk of it. But part of the underlying social contract is, you take a hunk of that and pay forward for the next kid who comes along."

"According to Warren, "People feel like the system is rigged against them. And here's the painful part: They're right. The system is rigged." Warren said that Wall Street CEOs "wrecked our economy and destroyed millions of jobs" and that they "still strut around congress, no shame, demanding favors, and acting like we should thank them.""


Of course now she's criticizing bankers, ultra righties are trying to co-opt her:

From comments:

"Though I do not agree with everything she says and/or does...I feel there is certainly room for us to build alliances with folks like Warren. "

Not likely. If Warren can see through the wealthy's "class war" whining, she can see through a cynical "alliance" with the far racist right. Only people who will be fooled are inexperienced naive leftists.

An Absolute Perfect Progressive 20.Feb.2013 11:26

Warren is a picture perfect progressive candidate. She is a liar and fake Native American who scammed the system to gain entrance to Haaarvaaard by claiming to be Native American. A claim that she can not back up with any documented evidence. In fact the evidence shows that she is Caucasian as were her parents.

She was stumped herself when asked about her lies and abuse of minority programs to gain perks she was not eligible for during her election, but progressives think that a liar like her is just so fucking wonderful.

She is a reprehensible person, cloaked in white privilege, who took places reserved for minority students, yet here she is being hero worshiped by the clueless.
