    If Lizzy [Elizabeth] Warden is truly opposed to Wall Street money, then shouldn’t she reject the DSCC’s money? Otherwise she is just using the DSCC to funnel in Wall Street money.

    It's just fine with me if she uses their money to set the creeps straight.

    What part of that money is being funneled to her is from Wall Street sources?

    Perhaps none.

    You don't understand do you? The Wall Street donors will expect something in return!

    Why do you think G.E. executives run Obamas Economic Council? They donated heavily to his campaign and expect to run the show!

    Turn the TV off! WAKE UP!

    The money came from the democratic senatorial campaign committee who accepts Wall Street donations, I think it unlikely any bank or brokerage house contributed directly to her campaign.

    Warren's beliefs regarding how markets should function runs counter to everything Wall Street currently stand for:

    "I come to Washington as a genuine believer in markets and a genuine believer that the purpose of regulating the consumer credit market is to make that market work for buyers and sellers alike: a level playing field where the best products at the best prices win.

    "When it works, the market is an ally to consumers.

    "And, when it works, the market rewards those lenders who offer the best value to their customers."

    The Economics and Politics of Elizabeth Warren « The Baseline Scenario

    In the 8:25 video posted by Occupied, Warren reveals she's a Law Professor teaching contract law at Harvard who can't understand the text of her own credit card contract. She points out the fact that credit card contracts began 40 years ago as single page documents and how they've expanded to forty times that length today.

    Anyone seriously doubting who Wall Street wants to win in Massachusetts next November is probably still looking for WMD in Iraq, too.

    Matt Taibbi's view is that finance capitalism has become too complex for traditional politicians to deal with. His solution is for a new breed of experts to take over.
