Sen. Harry Reid’s office just confirmed Elizabeth Warren's position on the Senate Banking Committee starting in January. Elizabeth Warren said following:

"I appreciate the faith that Leader Reid has put in me to take this assignment, and I am looking so forward to playing a role in Congressional oversight over big banks on Wall Street and the banking agencies in Washington. Middle class families need more watchdogs in Washington that will try to hold the big guys accountable and to stop bad deals for the American people. I’m ready to help."

"Of course, fighting for the middle class means more than talk or strongly worded emails. It means across-the-board, consistent accountability for anyone who breaks the law — no matter where they work or who their friends are. And that’s what we’re going to work hard to accomplish."

"I’ve taken on Wall Street banks and other powerful interests for years, and, with your help, I’ll continue to do so for many years to come."

Maybe HSBC and others banks will start to watch what they are doing and look over their backs for Elizabeth.
