Fix America’s Rigged Justice System

Senator Elizabeth Warren’s remarks on the Senate floor on February 3, 2016.

Thank you John Reed for posting this on Facebook.

We have one set of laws on the books, but there are two legal systems: One for the rich and powerful, and one for everyone else. It’s not equal justice when a kid gets thrown in jail for stealing a car, while a CEO gets a huge raise when his company steals billions. Want to see the rigged game in action? Tomorrow, the House will be voting on a GOP bill that would make it much harder to investigate and prosecute bank fraud. The American people remember who broke our economy & who made out like bandits – and they didn’t send us here to help the bandits. To anyone in Congress who thinks they can simply talk tough on crime and then vote to make it even harder to crack down on corporate criminals, hear this: I promise you – I promise you – the American people are watching.
