In an interview with Huffington Post, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) discussed her relationship with President Barack Obama, criticizing his administration for being too cozy with Wall Street while praising him for the establishment of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. "I've made no secret about my disagreements with the administration's policies, particularly as they relate to the largest financial institutions," Warren said. "[T]he president chose his economic team, and when there was only so much time and so much money to go around, his economic team chose Wall Street instead of American families who were in trouble. But I also give full credit to the president. If President Obama had not been in the White House, we would never have gotten the consumer agency through. He stood up for it, he fought for it, and he made sure that even when those on his own team might have been willing to throw that agency under the bus, that the consumer agency was something that stayed part of the financial reforms and stayed strong."
