Senator Warren Urges Action to End Too Big to Fail

WASHINGTON, DC - In remarks to Americans for Financial Reform and the Roosevelt Institute today, United States Senator Elizabeth Warren discussed the actions Congress needs to take to end Too Big to Fail and help prevent future financial crises.

"We should not accept a financial system that allows the biggest banks to emerge from a crisis in record-setting shape while working Americans continue to struggle," said Senator Warren in her speech today. "And we should not accept a regulatory system that is so besieged by lobbyists for the big banks that it takes years to deliver rules and then the rules that are delivered are often watered-down and ineffective.

"What we need is a system that puts an end to the boom and bust cycle.  A system that recognizes we don't grow this country from the financial sector; we grow this country from the middle class."
