New Elizabeth Warren TV ad: “There’s been no real accountability for the people who broke our economy”

August 18, 2012

A new TV ad by the Elizabeth Warren Senate campaign was just released titled, “Accountability”. Ms. Warren has fought for the middle class which is sadly lacking in today’s politics. The speaker in the ad says Warren, “is not a Wall Street insider, not a Washington insider” then goes on to remind others that the “gutsy” Senate candidate is behind the Consumer Protection Bureau, to help “get straight talk from the banks.”

The ad goes on to say, “Elizabeth Warren has been unsparing in her criticism of the financial sector.” The ad shows Ms. Warren during a speech stating, “There’s been no real accountability for the people who broke our economy.”



FYI: In Iceland, their economy went bust, but actions resulted in rectifying the country’s catastrophic economy –  the Icelandic government was forced to resign and the IMF representatives were kicked out off their country. Iceland’s economy is healing because people were held accountable for their actions. Strange concept, isn’t it?

Donate to Elizabeth Warren here. I did.

    It may be that we’d not correctly identified those persons who lowered the US economic viability. Clearly money was made by firms who purchased labor from oppressive places where labor rates are very low. Actions speak louder than words and those who managed that effort essentially sent trillions of operating costs and profit to support adversarial, communist and oppressive countries. Now the US does not have adequate tax income due to foreign investment tax credits etc.and the lack of domestic manufacturing.. Income numbers support the fact that only those making more than 2 million dollars per year doubled their income in the past eight one half years where the remainder of the americans have stagnated. Does that adequately nominate the real problem?

    Don’t you just LOVE Iceland??? Go Iceland!!! You bad, yeah, you bad.

    Ms. Warren, all I can say to your jawdropping accusations is that

    “There’s been no real accountability for the people who wasted two years on an unpopular, unwanted healthcare law instead of working on improving our crippled economy.” Well…actually there will be some real accountability for those people…in November…when we kick the whole lot of ‘em out of power and put people in who WILL work on the economy.

    So… does this mean that Warren is seeking to hold the likes of Barney Frank and Chris Dodd accountable for “breaking our economy”? After all, those two and many other senate and house Dems did more to break the economy than anyone else.

    It was the Democrat backed Fanny & Freddy fiascos and their heavy-handed manipulation/strangulation of banking and Wall street that caused the collapse. You can plot the downward economic spiral from the moment the dems took congress (Jan.1st, 2007). Before that, we’d been setting records for economic growth and low unemployment.

      Why do you think Republicans AND Dems fear her?

      • M40

        Maybe because she’s a narcissistic tax & spend, nanny-state endorser who can’t seem to shut her trap. She’s smug and convinced that she’s smarter than everyone else in the room, yet every time she open her mouth, her foot falls out. Can you imagine being married to this woman?!? Scary thought.

        Her other big commercial airing here in Mass has her minging and whining about how government should do something about the price of higher education. That would be fine if (a) we could actually AFFORD to subsidize higher learning, and (b) she weren’t making a half million dollars a year as a Harvard professor who almost never teaches any classes.

        • KKL

          I find it amusing that men such as yourself (yes I know you’re male)
          have the nerve to say of a woman with her intelligence and savvy that she talks too much. Shame on you.

    • History and stuff

      Every recession happened while a republican was in office.

      • M40

        Well there was always SOME republican that they could blame. However, if you’ve ever studied even basic civics, you understand that CONGRESS CONTROLS THE PURSE STRINGS.
        Let’s look at the results:

        - Every time the Republicans have controlled congress, we’ve had prosperity in America.
        - Every time the Democrats have controlled congress, we’ve had UNMITIGATED ECONOMIC DISASTER.

        Is this a coincidence? Is it some kind of statistical anomaly? I think not.

        • History and stuff

          Republicans control Congress now.

          • M40

            Really? And what country, and/or planet are you talking about… and what color is the sky in your world?
            Are you really THAT ignorant, or just seriously out of touch? Republicans recently regained the HOUSE, but do not control the senate. Any attempt by republicans to stop the out of control spending spree is met with accusations of ‘racism’, ‘obstructionism’, and other such nonsense.

            Republicans controlled the house and senate through 6 of the Bush years. At the beginning of January, 2007…
            – The DOW Jones closed at 12,621.77
            – The GDP for the previous quarter was 3.5%
            – The Unemployment rate was 4.6%
            – and Republican economic policies SET A RECORD of 52 STRAIGHT MONTHS of JOB GROWTH

            Then came January 3rd, 2007… the day that Democrats took over both the senate and the House of Representatives. Barney Frank took over the House Financial Services Committee and Chris Dodd took over the Senate Banking Committee. The economic meltdown that happened 15 months later was in what part of the economy? BANKING AND FINANCIAL SERVICES!

            Then the democrats dumped 6 TRILLION Dollars of toxic loans from their Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac FIASCO’S into our economy. REMEMBER that Bush asked Congress 17 TIMES to stop Fannie & Freddie – starting in 2001 because it was financially risky for the US economy.

            And now here we are… TEN TRILLION DEEPER IN DEBT. The Dems have spent your future earnings, your children’s future earnings,and your grand-children’s future earnings. Our homes have lost their values, our retirement accounts have been drained, and our money isn’t worth the paper it’s printed on. And where did it all go?!? Right down the Democrat rat-hole.

            And all it took is a hundred million people as ignorant as you to make it happen.

            • History and stuff

              I realize that you’re an angry little feller – and that you were compelled to go republican caps on me but distorting history in order to fit your ideology is not becoming, nor is it conducive to civil discourse. Next thing you’ll be in a hissy fit over is evolution. That never happened either. Your party – the one you feign fiscal conservatism while spending like drunken sailors – they’ve screwed themselves and may not recover for years. You have a great night though.

              • M40

                No actual dispute, hmm? Just assertions that I’m incorrect, angry, having a ‘hissy fit’ etc.

                When liberals run out of facts, logic, and historical precedent they go straight to silly assertions and name calling. That is the indicator that their argument is done.

                PS – The Dem congress spent at a rate 3 times higher than the Republican congress that preceded them, and in fact set records for their outrageous levels of spending. Now that there’s a Republican house calling for fiscal sanity, the Dems are throwing ‘hissy fits’ (to use your term)… and so are you!

                • History and stuff

                  It must be nice to live in a world where the president you voted for is unaccountable for war, distress, devastation, blood spilled and economic chaos. But that’s fine. You can always blame it on the next president.

                  • M40

                    For someone using the name “History and stuff”, you don’t have a very good grasp of history… or ‘stuff’.

                    PS – I didn’t vote for Obama.

            • Ctee

              Uh..well? Was he right? If we’re talking executive branch you’re wrong.
              If you’re talking about congress it’s a wash, or even.
              Generally I believe our economy is controlled by foreign investment mostly althoguh we’re certainly spending more than we have in revenue and we’re all fearful.
              Greed by corporate boards and operators is the cause. Operating profits and tax revenues now are property of other countries. We let the horse out of the barn.
              The government was not effective in restricting this inappropriate investment by greedy, self serving “Americans”.
              I don’t think that you perhaps addressed this person’s response appropriately but you do have a cause for concern. Both parties appear to be more worried about reelection than fixing our economic problems. Therefore they go for campaign funds rather than saving our butts.

              • M40

                If you read my argument (which may rely on a basic understanding of civics), it is that CONGRESS controls the purse strings of the nation and that presidents have very little to do with the economy. If you plot our economic foundations alongside control of congress, the picture becomes very clear.
                – Every time Republicans have controlled congress, we’ve seen economic growth, prosperity and great employment numbers.
                – Every time Democrats have controlled congress, we’ve seen unmitigated economic disasters.

                Is this a giant coincidence? Is it some kind of strange anomaly? I think not. I call it civics 101.

                • Anomaly

                  Wonderful.Then you don’t blame President Obama for the economy then. That’s good to know. We can blame Congress.
