While the bubbly and brilliant 69-year-old professor is a darling of
Democrats, Warren has become the scourge of conservative Republicans,
who question her panel’s exploration of more-liberal approaches such as
nationalization and bank liquidation.
Financial services lobbyists, who’ve long disliked Warren for
highlighting predatory lending and abusive credit card fees, argue that
she’s using her post to push her own, anti-industry agenda.
“A number of people wonder if this is the new Warren commission or the
congressional oversight panel,” said Wayne Abernathy, executive
director for financial institutions policy at the American Bankers
Association. “It’s looking more like the former than the latter.”
I have seen Warren in interviews and she strikes me as sincere and very intelligent. I think she's been tough on the Obama Administration, too, so I'm not sure where the Republicans are coming from on this one. I guess they will complain about anything. It beats working hard for solutions, I suppose.
