Senator Warren is Wall Streetís worst nightmare

The election is over but that doesnít mean the election drama is over. From Donald Trump demanding a revolution in a now-deleted tweet to the stock market taking a dive, the post-election drama is still going strong. Part of the stock market drama can be tied to the newly elected Senator from Massachusetts, Elizabeth Warren.

Warren, a consumer advocate, was part of the force behind the creation of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and the Dodd-Frank banking reform act. Warrenís voice was strong then and now as a member of the Senate, it is only going to get stronger.

Personally, I think that the CFPB is only going to help the nationís economy as it targets predatory lending and other shady banking practices that helped cause the whole economic mess in the first place. Kudos to Warren for standing up in support of Dodd-Frank and congratulations on her Senate race win.

2. Actually, she was probably more effective as an outside advocate.

Her voice is now 1 of 100 in a bureaucratic hell of backslapping and partisanship.

3. Go Girl !!!

Time to break up the "to big to fail" banks; bring back Glass-Steigel (i am sure i spelled that wrong); and get the banks back to clean , legitimate mortgages again.

We can do this.

6. Looks like the Coke and Hooker Parties May Be Put on Hold

And consumers, borrwers, and investors may actually be treated with some respect instead of being suckered.

7. Or more accurately: worst Wallstreet criminals nightmare

Wallstreet itself would have little to fear, I'd imagine.
