It's About Time

Someone was asking the bank regulators some hard questions:

When she was campaigning to become the next U.S. senator to represent Massachusetts, Democrat Elizabeth Warren pledged that she would take her tough talk about enforcing Wall Street regulations to Washington and put them into action.

On Thursday, as Senator Warren got the opportunity to question regulators at her first Senate Banking Committee hearing, she bluntly asked "When did you last take... a large financial institution, a Wall Street bank, to trial?"

Here she is in action. Something tells me the regulators weren't ready for this.

I am so glad Elizabeth Warren is in the Senate. We need more like her.
