    Elizabeth Warren to Dems: Kill the bill

    Elizabeth Warren to Dems: Kill the bill - Seung Min Kim - POLITICO

    “Now, the House of Representatives is about to show us the worst of government for the rich and powerful,” she continued. “The House is about to vote on a budget deal, a deal negotiated behind closed doors that slips in a provision that would let derivatives traders on Wall Street gamble with taxpayer money and get bailed out by the government when their risky bets threaten to blow up our financial system.”[COLOR=#000000][FONT=proxima-nova]She acknowledged that bipartisan House and Senate negotiators have worked “long and hard” on the spending bill, and that Senate leadership “deserve great credit for preventing the House from carrying out some of their more aggressive … fantasies about dismantling even more pieces of financial reform.”
    I expect both left and right to fight against this type of economic nonsense that allows the worst players to raid the American taxpayers.
    A man without fear is a fool, a man that succumbs to his fear is a coward and a brave man acknowledges fear yet presses on.

    Re: Elizabeth Warren to Dems: Kill the bill

    wall street, in backroom negotiations, tells our lawmakers to again allow the taxpayers to underwrite the gamble with derivatives
    a resumption of privatizing the potentially massive profits and socializing the massive potential losses
    this illustrates why Elizabeth Warren (and Bernie Sanders) should be the on democratic ticket in 2016
    otherwise we will continue to have the best government money can buy
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it

    Someone had a suggestion last week, that maybe politicians should have to ware body cameras,
    with the content available for public viewing.
    If it is good for the cops, why not the politicians?

    Unless those measures are needed to pass PPACA, then guaranteed profit and socialized losses become acceptable.

    Why should I believe what Warren says? Half truths and lies are common.
