August looks set to be the month of Mad Max. The derivatives diva is a bit irritated that lobbyists are starting to win the battle against the proposed Consumer Financial Protection Agency by targeting politicians who rely on Rolling Stone to teach them about the evils at GS.
"We think they've hired three lobbyists for each one of us," Rep. Maxine Waters said at the rally, adding that lobbyists were "running up and down these halls" persuading lawmakers who don't work primarily on financial matters.
As a result, Maxie has vowed that she will be ramping up her speaking engagements around the country next month. She will be spreading the message that only through the CFPA will people rest easy knowing that the woman previously famous for threatening to nationalize the US petroleum industry has their back when it comes to preventing unsuitable investment proposals.
