    Elizabeth Warren — who hauled in an eye-popping $5.7 million the last three months of 2011 — refused to swear off Wall Street money yesterday, instead claiming that any money she gets from deep-pocketed financiers is coming from those who “want reform.”

    “There are people on Wall Street who actually believe we need better rules, fairer rules,” Warren said last night as she toured small businesses in Davis Square in Somerville

    did she say that with a straight face? :lol:

    Would be a lot of fun to see all the money people who complain about Wall Street, make off of Wall Street.

    A chart that has a person's name, quotes of them whining, then dollar figure in profits next to it.

    I work for a very connected investment firm and have sent Warren a few bucks.

    I'm of the school that can see how one could rail against some of the practices of Wallstreet while simultaneously supporting some of Wallstreet so......*shrug*

    Interesting strategy to bring down Wall Street or force them to change, give them more money and increase their profits.

    Except the "bring down Wallstreet" thing is something you disengenuously applied to her, it's doubtfully something she's actually said.

    Like I said - you can rail against corruption in any sector and still support said sector - it's not really hypocritical if you're not broad brushing.

    “That’s what I stand for."

    Well personally i can't really do that. If i were against banks or wall street I wouldn't give them my money.

    Good thing I'm not.

    To me it sounds like she's using propaganda to get votes, it'll also be neat to see what kind of "donations" she gets and doesn't reject from Wall Street.
