Without so much as a “Mea culpa!” here’s Elizabeth Warren on President Goldman-Sachs:
In an interview in Salon, Warren, who has said she doesn’t plan to seek the 2016 presidential nomination, said fellow Democrats including President Obama have not done enough to help consumers.
On President Obama: Warren praised Obama for the creation of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, a federal agency aimed at enforcing consumer protection laws.
But she told Salon that “there has not been nearly enough change” in the wake of the U.S. financial crisis.
“He picked his economic team and when the going got tough, his economic team picked Wall Street. …They protected Wall Street. Not families who were losing their homes. Not people who lost their jobs. Not young people who were struggling to get an education. And it happened over and over and over.”
Warren hits hard, but don’t you get the idea that the Democratic anti-Obama positioning for 2016 has barely begun?
