“Wall Street isn’t going to change its ways until Washington gets serious about strong oversight and real accountability – no special deals.”

Warren is calling for a new version of the Glass-Steagall Act, the law passed after the stock market crashed in 1929 to keep high-risk banking separate from more traditional banking. It was repealed in 1999.
