Bloomberg News has the story Elizabeth Warren Said to Head to Senate Banking Committee.
U.S. Senator-elect Elizabeth Warren, the Harvard University law professor and critic of Wall Street, is poised to join the Senate Banking Committee after she’s sworn into office in January.
Two Democratic aides briefed on the matter said Senate leaders intend to assign Warren to the Banking Committee, although a final decision on committee assignments won’t be made until the new session of Congress convenes.
Let’s hope that this really comes to pass. According to the article:
“We certainly plan to reach out to Senator-Elect Warren,” said James Ballentine, executive vice president of congressional relations and political affairs at the American Bankers Association.
If the American Bankers Association is taking this report seriously, maybe they have given up trying to block this assignment. I hope you weren’t drinking anything when you read that last sentence. If you were, you might want to wipe your computer screen.
