Video: Colbert Interviews Elizabeth Warren on Financial Reform

By Ryan Rodrick Beiler 5-06-2010

Stephen Colbert does the second best interview in recent memory with economist, passionate advocate for consumer protection, and veteran Sunday school teacher Elizabeth Warren. Second best, that is, to Sojourners' interview with her for our April magazine cover story. Key quote from Colbert's interview:

Colbert: Why do we need reform? Why do we need to regulate the banks? Don't we have bank regulators now? ... Why do we have to wear a belt with our suspenders? We already have one set of regulators.

Warren: Actually right now, we don't have any pants on.
