FIGHTING WORDS: Maxine Waters Warns Wall Street, Outlines Agenda as Committee Chair

Originally published at:

Firebrand Congresswoman Maxine Waters slammed Wall Street and other sectors of the financial industry Wednesday; outlining her bold agenda as she takes control of the House Financial Services Committee.

Waters was speaking at the Center for American Progress Action Fund in the nation’s capital when she blamed “Large Wall Street banks” for the American financial collapse of 2008.

“The crisis was a result of Wall Street running amok,” said the California legislator. “Large Wall Street banks are not subject to anybody and do great damage to our economy.”

“The CEOs of the banks now are saying, ‘What can we do to stop Maxine Waters because if she gets in she’s going to give us a bad time?’” said Waters before her election last November. “I have not forgotten that you undermined our communities. I have not forgotten that you sold us those exotic products, had us sign on the dotted line for junk.”
