Jim Hightower says: Elizabeth Warren is natural pick for new consumer bureau

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.

So tell the powers that be: Appoint Warren now!
