Dear Mr. President:
I shall be brief. If you do not appoint Elizabeth Warren to head the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection it will be widely seen as a betrayal of the middle class and likely abandonment of hope for real economic reform.
There is far too much compromise in today's political atmosphere and it is neither buying the good will of the opposition nor the confidence of the electorate.
I urge you to appoint the one person we feel confident will represent the vast majority of the people of the United States. This nation has become a corporatocracy and we need a strong signal that you really mean to do something about it.
Half measures are not enough.
