Elizabeth Warren

Elizabeth Warren from Credo
Consumers can find no better honest and enthusiastic advocate than Elizabeth Warren.  She is an articulate and clear thinking spokesperson against the dirty tricks and shenanigans being pulled by wall street and the banks.  Four years ago she put forward the idea for a new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.  She has pushed tirelessly for this new agency.  But the republicans do not want her to head it, and have repeatedly tried to dumpster the agency.  Al Franken wrote,: "Since the president appointed Elizabeth Warren to set up the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau she has proven she can stand up to Wall Street.  Now, it's time for a permanent leader to be appointed and, because Republican senators have vowed to block anyone, it's up to President Obama to use his constitutional power to bypass Republicans and make a recess appointment."

Now the Republicans have decided to make  personal attacks on Ms. Warren.  This clip of Chairman Patrick McHenry, R (NC-10) displays an almost unbelievable lack of respect and rudeness.  In essence calling Ms. Warren a liar is completely uncalled for. 

Here is congressman Congressman McHenry's fan page on facebook, Comments anyone?
