Elizabeth Warren rips into GOP, NRA By: Patrick Reis March 14, 2013 09:07 AM EDT
Sen. Elizabeth Warren planted a liberal flag on Thursday, pushing the governments right to regulate as she ripped Republicans, the National Rifle Association and anyone else who would stand in its way.
In a wide-ranging speech to the Consumer Federation of America, Warren defended federal regulations as essential for safe consumers and a healthy economy. And at a time when cutting red tape is a key plank of Republicans plan for economic growth, Warren argued that regulations were a success story in America.
Its thanks to federal agencies that no one has to worry that those white pills are baking soda instead of antibiotics or that the paint on the babys crib is laced with lead, Warren said, according to a copy of her prepared remarks.
She singled out financial products and touted the work of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, a fledgling financial watchdog created by the 2010 Dodd-Frank overhaul of financial regulations.
This agency is about making consumer credit clear no more hiding tricks and traps in a thicket of fine print. It is about letting consumers see the deal and not worrying about the things they cant see, Warren said.
Warren hammered Republicans over their vow to block Richard Cordray, Obamas nominee to lead the CFPB, from being confirmed. A filibuster-proof bloc of Republicans are demanding changes to the agencys structure and budgeting process before theyll confirm any director, saying the changes are needed for proper oversight of the new agency.

Will any republican step up and demolish this lightweight?
The phony “white woman of color” needs to lighten up with her commie BS. There are still a lot of Americans who believe in freedom and liberty still living in this country and we aren’t giving up our freedom. The phony balony Warren can KMA!
Sorry, my error.
I pray for a day when people like Warren are forcibly expatriated. People like her are a terminal cancer upon this once great nation.
Wonder if she lathered up with some war paint and a headdress to make her attack.
Did she get out of her teepee and do the traditional Indian Dance before she went on this little rampage
Oh, they love "Dances with Commies" on the far left websites like DU. In fact there is serious talk (on those websites) about running her for president in 2016. (Hillary Clinton is too "conservative" for them.)
Leftest scumbag alert for later.....
Wow. A scathing tomahawk assault from Sitting Bull!
You would think someone with high cheekbones wouldn’t love the government so much . . .
I get my rights straight from God. You want to take them, you’ll have to kill me.
Ug, she speak with heap big mouth full of sh*t.
My tribe call her, dances with jackasses.
This purported woman is really quite a poltroon.
A shining example of the majority of Massoftwocraps. They are beyond hope at this point.
