Elizabeth Warren: It's Bank Lobbyists vs. American Families In Fight For Financial Reform

Elizabeth Warren appeared on "Real Time With Bill Maher" Friday evening to discuss financial reform.

Warren, the chair of the Congressional Oversight Panel for TARP, explained that banks and their lobbyists are hammering Congress and fighting against the interests of American families by blocking financial reform. The problems are obvious and the solutions are too, but for some reason, we can't seem to get the two together, Warren said.

She admitted that during her first appearance on Maher's show six months ago, she believed that the country was on "the brink" of financial reform. Maher promptly asked her what she smoked before that show.
