Warren Lashes Out at GOP Debate Ad Showing Her as 'Commie Dictator'

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) is upset with a commercial that ran during the GOP presidential debate that made her look like a "commie."

The ad advocating a stop to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is from the American Action Network, started by former Sen. Norm Coleman (R-Minn.) and former Nixon and George H.W. Bush aide Fred Malek. The think-tank side of the nonprofit is run by former Congressional Budget Office director Doug Holtz-Eakin.

The faces of Warren and CFPB director Richard Cordray on red party banners overlook a utilitarian room of robotic workers rubber-stamping applications.

The AAN said it "visualizes the consequences of CFPB’s reckless regulations issued under the guise of protecting consumers."

“It’s time to start a national conversation about the 500 major regulations issued under this administration, especially through the unaccountable CFPB,” said AAN president Mike Shields upon the ad's release today. “Elizabeth Warren’s CFPB is unilaterally handing down regulations that ultimately hurt the people they claim to be helping, particularly middle- and lower-income Americans trying to get ahead in a terrible economy."

"We want voters to know the truth about this rogue agency and to call on national leaders and Congress to stop the CFPB.”

Warren had a different opinion.
