You all know what a big fan I am of protections for we little guys/gals. Wall Street, thanks to the GOP, have had their Mr. Toad's Wild Ride at our expense. Well, stepping up to the front of the line to protect us from further abuses and hopefully further bailouts, are two unlikely allies. Not that either alone wouldn't be of great marquee value but when old school meets new school, you've really got something quite formidable. Perennial wild card, Sen. John McCain and consumer protection expert, Sen. Elizabeth Warren have begun their mission -- the new Glass-Steagall Act. Not too long ago, I wrote about it as well as posted Senator Warren's kind response.
So it was with great relish that I heard that she had taken on the talking heads over at CNBC recently and gave them a schooling. So much so that CNBC demanded YouTube take down the video of Senator Warren's smack-down on SQUAWK BOX claiming it was violating copyright.By the time the video was removed, it had already gone viral. The damage was done. Here's a HuffPo report on it.
Now, if you want to see the entire banned segment, you can. CNBC has reversed itself after it's public shaming and the video is back up on YouTube. We have it here for your listening and viewing pleasure.
Senator Warren has never been better. Please enjoy:
AUTHOR'S NOTE: Laffy did a wonderful piece on Senator Warren yesterday. Please check it out here if you haven't seen it yet. We have a true fighter for us up in Senate.
