Thursday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) made an appearance to promote her new book “A Fighting Chance.” Co-host Joe Scarborough asked the freshman senator about her complaints that since 2008 Wall Street big banks had gotten “38 percent” larger and more corrupt and pointed out the White House, the Senate and for a short time the House as well were controlled by Democrats.
Partial transcript as follows:
SCARBOROUGH: Republicans went along with it, Democrats went along with it. Most viewers would think, OK — you elect this hope and change Democrat, you’ve got for a while a filibuster-proof Senate, you’ve got a massive Democratic advantage in the House of Representatives,… for a while. And yet the big banks just kept getting bigger. It’s enough for Americans to think there’s just not a big difference between the two parties when it comes to standing up to Wall Street. Is that fair?
WARREN: So look, this is how I look at this. I’ve never made any secret out of my disagreements with both administrations in how much they gave in to the big financial institutions and how much they helped them during this crisis.
