Friday when Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) spoke at Netroots Nation, a progressive convention for online activists, she stuck her usual populist tone, arguing, “the game is rigged” in Washington against the little guy and in favor of big banks.
The Massachusetts lawmaker said big banks “swagger through Washington–blocking reforms in pushing around agencies” so they will not be held accountable for their misdeeds.
She said, “a kid gets caught with a few ounces of pot and goes to jail but a big bank laundered drug money and no one gets arrested,” because she claimed their “Republican friends in Congress” give in to the banks’ lobbyists and “protect every loophole and every privilege” for the “too big to fail” financial institutions.
Warren concluded, “We don’t win every time, but we’re learning to win. We’re learning to win, and we will keep winning. We will fight and we will win.”
