Elizabeth Warren quotes

I never thought I'd have to start using a modifier for 'facts.feedback

I'll be honest. I think it is crazy that we are considering confirming a lifetime Trump nominee to the Supreme Court at a moment when the president's campaign is under the cloud of an active, ongoing FBI counterintelligence investigation that could result in indictments and appeals that will go all the way to the Supreme Court so that Trump's nominee could be the deciding vote on whether Trump or his supporters broke the law and will be held accountable. That is nuts.feedback

So some of you know, I was a teacher, researcher, and was doing work about what was happening to America's middle class. This was several years back. One guy with bright white hair … got into it. It was like nobody else was in the room. And that was sort of the start of it with Bernie Sanders.feedback

Instead of creating jobs or raising wages, they're trying to make it easier for companies that get big-time, taxpayer-funded government contracts to steal wages from their employees and injure their workers without admitting responsibility.feedback

Serious wrongdoing could go unpunished. If President Trump wanted to make sure that the SEC would have a hard time in going after his Wall Street friends, it seems to me you would be the perfect SEC chair.feedback

The American Dream has come under attack as corporations chase quick profits at the expense of their workers.feedback

These draconian cuts will hobble your ability to run core parts of the agency, including the divisions that investigate and enforce the federal health and safety standards that keep workers safe on the job and the federal wage and hour laws that ensure that workers are paid fairly.feedback

Dr. Carson's answers weren't perfect. But at his hearing, he committed to track and report on conflicts of interest at the agency.

If Dr. Carson doesn't follow through on his commitments, I will be the very first person he hears from – loudly and clearly and frequently.feedback

Mr. Ross has extensive ties to Russia. He plans to keep making money from his major oil shipping companies while working as Commerce Secretary. He's made billions off the backs of struggling home owners. He is practically a cartoon stereotype of a Wall Street fat cat.feedback

None of these people are criminals. None of these people are threats. They're students at some of the world's top universities.feedback

Mr. Mnuchin is the ultimate Wall Street insider. From the moment he graduated from college until today, he has worked at a big bank or a hedge fund. If Wall Street threatens to blow up the economy again, does anyone seriously expect Mr. Mnuchin to get tough with his old buddies and tell them to knock it off?feedback

This is about Coretta Scott King's letter. And that's all this is about. And Mitch McConnell didn't want me to read that letter. He stopped me. And so I went out and read the letter anyway and posted it on a live feed.feedback

I've been red-carded on Senator Sessions. I'm out of the game on Senator Sessions. I hope everyone reads the letter.feedback

The Republicans took away my right to read this letter on the floor - so I'm right outside, reading it now.feedback

I'm reading a letter from Coretta Scott King to the Judiciary Committee from 1986 that was admitted into the record. I'm simply reading what she wrote about what the nomination of Jeff Sessions to be a federal court judge meant and what it would mean in history for her.feedback

Washington works great for the rich and powerful who can hire armies of lawyers and lobbyists, but it is not working very well for everyone else. America's once-solid middle class is on the ropes, and now Donald Trump and his administration seem determined to deliver the knockout punch. At this perilous moment in our country's history, it's time to fight back – and I'm looking for more people to join me.feedback

Donald Trump talked a big game about Wall Street during his campaign – but as president, we're finding out whose side he's really on. Today, after literally standing alongside big bank and hedge fund CEOs, he announced two orders – one that will make it easier for investment advisors to cheat you out of your retirement savings, and another that will put two former Goldman Sachs executives in charge of gutting the rules that protect you from financial fraud and another economic meltdown.feedback

Donald Trump talked a big game about Wall Street during his campaign – but as president, we're finding out whose side he's really on. The Wall Street bankers and lobbyists whose greed and recklessness nearly destroyed this country may be toasting each other with champagne, but the American people have not forgotten the 2008 financial crisis – and they will not forget what happened today.feedback

President Trump had the chance to select a consensus nominee to the Supreme Court. To the surprise of absolutely nobody, he failed that test.

This is not just a stockbroker…this is someone who buys stock at your direction.feedback

The only way for President-elect Trump to truly eliminate conflicts-of-interest is to divest his financial interests by placing them in a blind trust.

He won – and now Latinos and Muslim-American children are worried about what will happen to their families. LGBT couples are worried that their marriages could be dissolved by a Trump-Pence Supreme Court. Women are worried that their access to desperately needed health services will disappear.feedback

Donald Trump won the Presidency under a Republican flag. But Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan and the Republicans in Congress – and their way of doing business – were rejected. Rejected by their own primary voters, rejected during the campaign, and rejected in Tuesday's election.feedback

That is Democrats' first job in this new era: We will stand up to bigotry. No compromises ever on this one.feedback

The Justice Department has rewarded Mylan by imposing a fine that is about $65 million less than the amount Mylan made by defrauding Medicare and Medicaid. In addition, you permitted Mylan to avoid admission of wrongdoing, collected no additional penalties under the False Claims Act, and blocked other actions against the company that would have required greater accountability.feedback

To summarize, if terms of the agreement announced by Mylan are correct, Mylan wrongly classified EpiPen to maximize its Medicaid revenue and did not change this classification despite being expressly told by CMS that it was wrong.feedback

Wells Fargo might want to push the blame for the consequences of its fraudulent actions onto low-level employees, but the Department of Labor should stand up for workers.feedback

That said, I accept full responsibility for all unethical sales practices in our retail banking business, and I am fully committed to doing everything possible to fix this issue, strengthen our culture, and take the necessary actions to restore our customers' trust.

The only way that Wall Street will change is if executives face jail time when they preside over massive frauds. Until then it will be business as usual, and at giant banks like Wells Fargo, that seems to mean cheating as many customers, investors and employees as they possibly can.feedback

There is a serious problem with senior management at Wells Fargo.feedback

I think people all across this country understand what's broken about this economy, what's broken about this country, that we now have a Washington that works for those who can hire armies of lobbyists and lawyers but its not working for the rest of America. The problem is that Donald Trump will just take us in the wrong direction.feedback
