Elizabeth Warren to House Democrats: Kill the “cromnibus”

The House is about to vote on a budget deal, a deal negotiated behind closed doors that slips in a provision that would let derivatives traders on Wall Street gamble with taxpayer money and get bailed out by the government when their risky bets threaten to blow up our financial system.

— Senator Elizabeth Warren, urging House Democrats to put the Republican-engineered and rider-laden “cromnibus” bill on ice.
