Nominate Elizabeth Warren to Protect Main St, Sheriff Wall St!
For years, Professor Elizabeth Warren has been fighting on behalf of consumers and pointing out the need for a federal agency to protect consumers from dangerous financial products.
Now, we're finally going to get those protections through the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, and we need Elizabeth Warren at the helm.
In order to be effective, the CFPB needs to be run by the most experienced, effective, and independent person around, and we think that Elizabeth Warren fits the bill.
The rappers in this Western-style music video agree, and call for "Sheriff Warren" to stand up for consumers!
The banks are fighting hard to make sure Elizabeth Warren doesn't get this job - they are worried that with her in place, the CFPB will actually be able to create change. Don't let the big banks win - ask President Obama to nominate Elizabeth Warren as CFPB director today!
I am glad to see that recent financial reform legislation calls for the creation of a Consumer Financial Protection Bureau which will result in substantial new protections for consumers against the tricks and traps of personal financing that indirectly and otherwise led to the financial crisis. Now, we need the most experienced, effective, and independent person to fill the vital position of the first head of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau - Elizabeth Warren.
Elizabeth Warren was one of the original architects and advocates of the concept of a Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and has shown a steadfast and tireless commitment to protecting consumers.
I call on the President to quickly move to nominate Elizabeth Warren to run the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.
I urge my Senators to ask the administration to nominate Elizabeth Warren for this position.
We need an independent and committed consumer advocate to run this new bureau, and Elizabeth Warren is without question the best candidate for the job.
