It's On: Elizabeth Warren Vs Wall Street

Posted by Greg Sargent on December 12, 2012 at 3:17 pm

Republicans have long derided Elizabeth Warren for describing herself as an intellectual godmother of Occupy Wall Street. Now the intellectual godmother of Occupy Wall Street is occupying the Senate committee that oversees it.
The Senate Democratic leadership is announcing today that Warren will be given a seat on the Senate Banking Committee. As Forbes put it recently, Warren’s ascent to the Senate alone was “Wall Street’s worst nightmare.” This could make that nightmare a good deal worse.
Warren’s appointment to the Banking Committee was expected; Ryan Grim broke the news some time ago. But today’s announcement will make it official.

This is going to give Warren a choice perch from which to continue to press the crusade for Wall Street oversight and accountability.

1. Their worst nightmare is our dream come true!

I am thrilled that she has this position on the Senate Banking Committee...

She knows her stuff, and she will make good use of it.

2. I would imagine

her tenacity during her campaign is only a mere glimpse we have of
undivided attention she will be directing toward Wall Street!
Thanks for your reply California Peggy!

5. I suspect you're right...

She has already shown us how tenacious she can be.

I am thrilled to see her there in the Senate, working for us.
