Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) did a little dance on the stage Monday when a voter suggested to Democrats that they back Glass-Steagall banking reforms.
Warren and other top Democratic lawmakers, including Minority leaders Sen. Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) and Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.), appeared at an event in Berryville, Virginia, to launch the party's new "A Better Deal" economic agenda as Democrats try to get back into power on Capitol Hill.
Schumer took questions from the audience after all the Democrats spoke.
"The economy's in terrible shape, but the financial system is doing very well in terms of profits," a woman said. "I wonder why you don't go behind Glass-Steagall in a major way. It was Franklin Roosevelt's first piece of legislation. We're on the verge of a blowout that makes 2008 look minor."
As the woman mentioned Glass-Steagall, Warren did a delighted dance to the amusement of her fellow lawmakers.
Warren has made a reputation for herself as being tough on Wall Street and has long called for the reinstatement of Glass-Steagall and the breaking up of big banks.
