+Shane Dial Careful. He may tell you that "You Lost". Obviously he is the judge, jury, and single minded moron on such proceedings.

Is Stovie still bitching and crying over this thread ?   The boy is too afraid to debate a legitimate issue.

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?
Report spam or abuse
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.

WOW. Warren for president!

Maybe so, but she is against auditing the biggest bank. The Fed.  That's all you need to know.

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.

squeezing every day citizens on thin petty grounds. yeah! that's me. 
Report spam or abuse
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.

There's no such thing as, "Too big to fail."  Any organization that approaches that status should be broken up before it drags the country down with it during its inevitable eventual failure.

Idiots on here defending big banks, I'm baffled about people's stupidity regulate those idiots so they don't keep breaking the law

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.
Report spam or abuse
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....

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.

'We have not had to do it to achieve our supervisory goals' >insane echoing cackle< Follow up question - Can you define what those supervisory goals are? Anticipated answer: To settle and not bring major financial institutions to a full trial....or no answer at all.

Its a revolving door between the SEC and the big banks committing fraud.  The SEC officials get a job with a big salary with these big banks after they leave the SEC.  Its like a bribe. That's why they don't take to trail any of the banks - their future employers.

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.

This woman is right, this system put in place in 1933 has worked then they fucked it up and we had bank problems. Fixing something that isn't broke usually means padding their own pockets that is why they want to circumvent the system and just use all our Money we have in the bank to invest so that they lose NOTHING and if their investments fail we lose everything.  Thank god for this woman!

The bank regulators don't take the large financial institutions to trial because they actually have to prove wrongdoing, not just make a factually devoid political speech pandering to hippies who would rather hear banks are to blame for them not paying the mortgage they agreed to.

We have learned that a Senator doesn't make a good president.  We must elect a person who has actually run a state, and has experience in governing.  What this woman is doing is politics, plain and simple. She is a much a lying fraud as Obama..... and look at the mess he has created in our country. We can't afford anymore senators.

+ladylordess Sorry what? Iraq destroyed all it's WMD's after the first Gulf War. IT WAS FALSE INFORMATION, we and the world were told that Iraq presented a clear and present danger, with a current WMD program and stockpiles of weapons. Iraq presented no danger and there were no WMD's. We never found shit. I still remember that little piece of shit of Donald Rumsfeld, saying when asked about the WMD's that we knew exactly where they were, somewhere North, South, East, West of Baghdad. The monumental horseshit, lies and dishonesty could be staked as high the high heavens.

To big to fail = to big to trial = to big to jail = pay off / own of the right people. It is "amazing" that the Central Banks can afford to give themselves billions in bonus' every year but need to be "subsidized" with tax payer money and they also know how to write off their taxes so they pay less than a middle wage earner. Elizabeth Warren know what she is asking and what the answers are going to be. She cannot do it alone. It seems she is about the only one in Washington with balls anymore but she needs help since everyone is playing politics with their answers.

She would make a great president! I'd vote for her any day! I've been watching her for a while now, and I don't think she could be bought off! And she would really fight for the 99% of americans . Hillary Rodham Clinton, well, she's bought, sold and paid for, just like her husband, and Lyndon B. Johnson, Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, ***Ronald Reagan, *George H. W. Bush, *George W. Bush, and ***Barack Obama. We need a real change, Mrs Elizabeth Warren, is a very smart lady, that really seems to care about the average american, and not just the super rich! She would make a great president, but those greedy bastards, would probably kill her, for the changes she would make.
