Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) said on The Daily Show last night that big corporations have made it so that laws protect the “tender fannies of the rich and the powerful.”
“Powerful corporations, rich people, have figured out that if you can bend the government to help you just a little bit, it’s a tremendous payoff,” said Sen. Warren. “And if you can bend it to help you just a little bit more, and a little bit more, the playing field just gets more and more tilted, and the rich and powerful just do better and better.”
Warren also said that lobbyists in Washington, DC “make sure that the tender fannies of the rich and the powerful are always carefully protected in every rule that’s written, in every conversation, in every discussion.”
