Sen. Gregg Worries That Elizabeth Warren May Use Her New Post To (Gasp!) Promote Social Justice!


Shakesville's Melissa McEwan made a great catch when Sen. Judd Gregg opened his mouth and said what he actually believes about the proper role of Elizabeth Warren at the new consumer protection agency:

Senator Judd Gregg (R-Eprobate)—who once upon a time (until he withdrew) was Obama's nominee for Commerce Secretary (lol)—is Very Concerned about Elizabeth Warren using her position in a new consumer protection agency to promote social justice.

Gregg, the ranking member of the Senate Budget Committee and a senior member of the Banking Committee, expressed dismay at President Obama's decision to tap Warren as a key "adviser" to help set up the new Consumer Financial Protection Agency established in the Wall Street reform bill.

..."My concern is that she would use the agency for the purpose of promoting social justice," Gregg said on ABC's "Top Line" webcast.


The Republican Party: Officially Against Social Justice.

And what does Gregg think that Warren should be using the CONSUMER PROTECTION bureau to do?

The agency, Gregg said, should promote improving access to credit, as well as other financial services.
