There are two open positions on the Senate Banking Committee. Elizabeth Warren would be the logical choice for this important position.
She is intelligent and honest. She is very experienced with banking matters. People believe that she would do the right thing, and the country would feel more secure about the economy with her on the committee. Big banks are trying to squash the possibility of this appointment because she advocates for a return to Glass-Steagall banking regulations.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid assigns these positions. His Washington phone is (202) 224-3542.
