    Senator Warren might have had a quiet start to the Senate, but she came out swinging in her debut hearing on the Senate Banking Committee. The former professor and consumer protection advocate asked questions that have been boiling inside of most American's for the longest of times. Here's just one excerpt during her questioning of one of the witnesses on the panel:

    "You know, I just want to note on this. There are district attorneys and U.S. attorneys who are out there every day squeezing ordinary citizens on sometimes very thin grounds. And taking them to trial in order to make an example, as they put it. I'm really concerned that too big to fail has become too big for trial. That just seems wrong to me."

    It is a breath of fresh air finally having a Senator that will ask the Bankers and Regulators pointed questions and demand answers from them. I think we can see why the bankers spent millions upon millions on her opponent, former Senator Scott Brown.
