It has been years since this  video was posted, and they still haven't had a huge bank on trial.

If I robbed a bank, I'd go to prison for years, my assets would be seized, and my life would be in ruin. But the banks get to rob us whenever they want with no fear of consequential retaliation?

Not only that, even if you compare big and smaller banks the difference is quiet obvious. A local bank NEVER gets bayled out or good deals, it simply goes bankrupt and the responsible person maybe goes to jail.

Why bring wall street corporations to trial when you can save tax payer money with a settlement and adjustment to policies/laws? I don't accept her claim of government is too timid to pursue big corps and that's just political hype for her and why unsettle financial sectors with big trails for political gains. Common liberals don't understand basical concepts like you need people to have jobs in order to pay taxes and not using taxes to create jobs to tax. Ethics is important but at some point you need to understand economic growth does require government to not hinder it.

Oh man. For a second there I actually thought you finally understood what my argument has been this entire time! I should have known better. You go right back to blaming the right. Let me make sure I am following you. Your argument is "Well they are both bad. But in my opinion one is way worse so I fully support the less bad one'? Would you agree that you are a "Lesser of Two Evils" voter? If not what would YOU call it? This isn't a sports game where you hate both teams but want one to lose because that would give the team you actually want to win a better chance at the championship. .  This is the well being of an entire nation and the well being for generations to come.

Yes, of course one party is far worse than the other.  It's not about fully supporting the Democratic Party, it's about making the party conform to what we want as progressives.   I don't hate the Democratic Party, I just realize it needs a lot more work.  I can name you countless accomplishments by the party over the last 70 years.  The same can't be said about the Republican party. What do you think of Senator Bernie Sanders?

Maybe so, but she is against auditing the biggest bank. The Fed.  That's all you need to know.
Report spam or abuse
+Sancho z I think we might be addressing two different things. You're commenting on how she's asking the fed why they aren't holding banks accountable. I'm more talking about the Fed itself - a private insitution that decides how much money the US will print and ultimately who the US debt is owed to. I want her, or anyone else, to go after them.

DAs squeezing ordinary citizens? Which is more important - the banks operating within the boundaries of the law [if they weren't, your party's skill at squeezing would have indicted them long ago] or the citizens being unnecessarily squeezed? I recognize this diatribe for what it is, Ms Warren, it's grandstanding to catch votes. The scandal is that you're getting away with it.

After 5 bullshit years with Obama at the helm, you would think Americans would learn the lesson that talk is cheap. Elizabeth Warren is a big talker (liar). She should stick to classrooms full of affirmative action students and leave the politics to true Americans who don't lie about their heritage.

I noticed they still would not answer her question directly just spout some other shit out like oh my "previous predecessor asked for additional authority".  When she was just asking when or how many times have they gotten to an actual hearing or court room to deal with the laws they had broken.

Yes, and "oh, we can give out penalties; we have some very tough penalties".  In other words, you wouldn't Dare take them to trial.   What a bunch of toads....

We need more politicians like that, she is a blessing, and sheds light on the evident issues
Report spam or abuse
I love the tough talk.  It sounds great, but face it, nothing ever changes!  To this day there are still no big banks being taken to court.   ---1. The banks factor in how much in "settlements" or litigation they can afford to pay and still make obscene profits by breaking the law. ---2. The corporations lobby lawmakers to pass bills that provide for penalties, settlements, and litigation that look impressive, but still allow them to profit from breaking the law. ---3. The bill passes, and Elizabeth Warren or other sponsors of the bill call it a success, because there are more penalties or prosecutions of corporations (not individuals). ---4. Nothing changes.  The agencies end up doing exactly what the criminals paid for, which has all been factored into their dedication to profit by breaking the law.

Elizabeth "Eazy-E" Warren I loved her before she was a senator. She's the only person on capital hill actually asking direct and common sense questions! I love it when the bankers or the Fed tries to spin her around forgetting that she knows banking and economics like the back of her hand.  The end of this video is basically the Senator shitting on all the "banking watch dogs" and the "justice" system.

She's fantastic!  This is the first time ever -- EVER -- that I've seen or heard anyone in D.C. actually, seriously, intelligently call the regulators out on their BS "enforcement" efforts against corrupt banks, especially "too big to fail" banks.  And, she established, on the record, that our "regulators" have not brought a single, solitary corrupt bank to trial -- keeping their fraud, and enforcement negotiations, nice and cozy behind closed doors.
