This video of Elizabeth Warren roasting a bank regulator who refused to regulate banks has been viewed over a million times since yesterday afternoon. The regulator's failure has been cited as a "prime example" of the hands-off regulatory approach that led to the economic collapse in 2008.
If all Democrats were like Elizabeth Warren, people would think of Republicans the way they think of muskets and cotton gins -- things they've read about but never actually seen outside of a museum.
Republicans tried to use this hearing to show that regulating banks costs too much. Elizabeth Warren turned that on its head, opening her questions saying, "I want to focus on the other side of the equation, and that is the cost to American families of failing to regulate."
