Jim Hightower makes an eloquent case today for why Harvard law professor Elizabeth Warren should head the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.
Hightower, a national radio commentator, writer, speaker and Public Citizen board member, writes:
[i]t’s time that we found someone who won’t kiss bankers’ butts, but rather kick bankers’ butts. … the CFPB can be an independent, aggressive force to battle banker scams and rip-offs on behalf of ordinary Americans. However, it will only be that if an extraordinarily knowledgeable, feisty fighter who is unafraid to confront the banksters is put in charge.
