Long before she gained prominence, as a progressive super star, I was a big fan of Elizabeth Warren and was bringing you reports on and video clips of her opposition to Banksters’ illegal and unethical practices. As a result the TBTF banks, which should still be broken up, have been moving heaven and earth trying to keep her off the Senate Banking Committee. Apparently, they have failed!

One of my early recollections of Sen.-Elect Warren was when she spoke truth to power and was heard and even those wanting to protect business accepted her facts as facts--these days that is a major accomplishment and may be something she brings to the committee even though a junior member.

This is the perfect committee for her! I can't wait to see her kick some WallStreet/Bank butt! She is and will be a force with which to be reckoned! One of my happiest moments in the Elections of 2012 was seeing her win!

Oh hip hip hooray! This is the best news. She may be a junior member but her intelligence and powerhouse personality and strength make her a major member in my book! TY Tom

Thanks Tom for posting the great news. Wall Street will be looking over their shoulders now. Thank you Senator Reid for putting her right where she needs to be. Read and joyfully noted.

You don't have to be a big person to have a big heart! Elizabeth Warren will give the Senate Banking Committee a level of expertise and sophistication that it has likely not seen before as evidenced by the whining and shenanigans of Wall Street. I believe they are actually afraid of her. And all that for the most junior senator. I'll bet she will not be the one running out to get coffees. Here are a couple of comments from the article:
Halfcrazy — I might actually have to start watching C-span banking committee coverage now, if for nothing else just to see the criminal ceo's squirm when she questions them.
Don Anderson — This would be very, very cool. After the banking industry sleazebags pulled out all the stops to stonewall Ms. Warren's appointment to direct the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau in 2010 … it would be sweet justice to see her on the Banking Committee, putting them in the hot seat for a change.

Elizabeth Warren is a force to be reckoned with. I think the Republicans are going to regret the fact that they prevented her from being appointed as head of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Justice will be served!
