One of our favorite consumer advocates, Elizabeth Warren, joins Jon Stewart on The Daily Show January 26, 2010. Mrs. Warren, who appeared in the documentary Maxed Out and is currently the Chair of the Congressional Oversight Panel for TARP, discusses the seriousness of the current economic crisis, the steps that need to be taken to put America on the right track, and the arrogance and dislocation of the financial industry from mainstream America.
“It is simple. This is America’s middle class. We’ve hacked at it, and chipped at it, and pulled on it for thirty years now. And now there’s no more to do. Either we fix this problem going forward or the game really is over.”
Mrs. Warren is one of the few people in America that we’d trust with representing the people because she actually cares about the debilitating effects of economic policies on the middle and working class in this country.
