Elizabeth Warren Takes Her Fight For Glass-Steagall To CNBC

Try as they might, the spokespeople for the big banks could not shake Elizabeth Warren's resolve to re-introduce Glass-Steagall.


I do love me some Senator Elizabeth Warren, especially when she stands tall against big banks. In her short time as Senator so far, she has managed to actually move the ball down the field.

CNBC hosts, on the other hand, are slaves to their banker masters, and spend most of their days convincing people who have nothing better to do than move their money around from place to place that Warren's plan to reinstate Glass-Steagall is nothing less than Satan's plan to take over the world.

Senator Warren is magnificent. I loved it when she responded to their skepticism about getting the bill passed by reminding them that if no one fights for something, it has ZERO chance of being passed. She then went on to cite the existence of the CFPB as something everyone thought would be dead in the water, too. Because consumer protection = bad, terrible policy if you're a banker.

Senator Warren's ability not only to communicate complex ideas and history but to also get Republicans on board with her idea is testimony to her people skills. Nowhere are those skills more on display than they are here.

As for those CNBC hosts, I can only suggest they pick themselves up, dust off their backsides, and try being a bit more polite and educated before taking on the senior Senator from the great state of Massachusetts.
