Elizabeth Warren Endorses Bernie Sanders’ Wall Street Plan
IBT – US Sen. Elizabeth Warren, one of the nation’s strongest proponents of financial reform, praised Bernie Sanders’ plan to hold Wall Street accountable Wednesday in a move that could rally support for his struggling presidential campaign. The Massachusetts Democrat has not endorsed a presidential candidate in the 2016 contest, but her support for Sanders as he and Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton fight over who can best tackle Wall Street reforms will likely be viewed favorably by his campaign.
“I’m glad @BernieSanders is out there fighting to hold big banks accountable, make our economy safer, & stop the GOP from rigging the system,” Warren tweeted of Sanders’ Wall Street plan, which he announced in a speech in New York City Tuesday. She also wrote: “11 big banks are still so risky that if any one started to fail, they’d need a gov bailout or risk taking down the economy — again,” and then added in a series of tweets supporting Sanders, “We need to level the playing field and end too big to fail.”
