Elizabeth Warren: "Just moments ago, I received a call from Sen. Harry Reidís office, confirming my

position on the Senate Banking Committee in January.

Email I just received.

I appreciate the faith that Leader Reid has put in me to take this assignment, and I am looking so forward to playing a role in Congressional oversight over big banks on Wall Street and the banking agencies in Washington. Middle class families need more watchdogs in Washington that will try to hold the big guys accountable and to stop bad deals for the American people. Iím ready to help.


Over the years, your faith in my work has strengthened me. You donated to my election campaign, you made phone calls to help identify volunteers and get out the vote in Massachusetts, and you pushed hard again and again to put wind in my sails in every way imaginable so that I could take on the big guys.

Against the odds, you helped give me a real shot at winning.

Youíve been there for me since the beginning, and Iím so grateful. This is how real change happens Ė we do it together.

Of course, fighting for the middle class means more than talk or strongly worded emails. It means across-the-board, consistent accountability for anyone who breaks the law ó no matter where they work or who their friends are. And thatís what weíre going to work hard to accomplish.


Iíve taken on Wall Street banks and other powerful interests for years, and, with your help, Iíll continue to do so for many years to come.

Thank you for being a part of this, and keep fighting!

Elizabeth

It's going to take a lot of time and effort to right this ship, but I believe that Warren is the right person for the job.

Hearings, anyone?

16. This is the highest return......

I've ever gotten for a $25 investment (contribution). I feel better just knowing she'll be in there fighting for the 99% and the banksters will not sleep well tonight.

31. All those many days on the pavement and phones for Warren were

worth it when she got elected. This appointment is icing on a very sweet cake.



(Happy almost one year birthday on DU, btw, Captain)

21. In the 80's branch banking was illegal in Colorado.

Let's federalize that law.

22. That can't be right...

DUers were outraged that Warren wasn't going to be picked.

Surely, they weren't outraged for nothing, were they?

34. Yeah, I got that one, too. FANTASTIC!!!!!!! The email asked to say Thank-You to Harry Reid for

naming her to that committee.

I feel like this is a victory that belongs to ALL of us! EVERY ONE OF US who worked for her, gave money to her campaign, wrote letters, emails, tweets, etc. It's OUR victory, too! And a victory for ANYONE who's been on the wrong end of a transaction with their bank or their broker And onward - as that effect ripples outward through the general consumer population.
