Elizabeth Warren: Political Stalemate Won't Mean More Or Less Government, Just 'Bad Government'

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) issued a warning to Republicans about "bad government" on the Senate floor Monday.

“I am new to the Senate, but I don’t understand why this body accepts a system where this kind of political stalemate won’t end in more government or less government but just in bad government –- government that lacks the consistency, clarity and predictability that honest businesses and hard-working families need to plan a future,” Warren said.

Warren also chastised Republicans for holding up the confirmation of Richard Cordray as director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, saying she doesn't understand why they'd let him "get stuck in this nonsense."
