Elizabeth Warren goes after everyone for not taking banks to court… at all

Can we get more people like Elizabeth Warren in congress, please?

“There is no question that settlements, fines, consent orders, and cease and desist orders are important enforcement tools, and that trials are expensive… But I believe strongly that if a regulator reveals itself to be unwilling to take large financial institutions all the way to trial… the regulator has a lot less leverage in settlement negotiations and will be forced to settle on terms that are much more favorable to the wrongdoer…”

People are excited about Hillary Clinton for 2016. I’m rooting for Warren. Where do I start donating?
