Among Doug Kass' 15 surprises for 2013 will be new Senator Elizabeth Warren spearheading the introduction of a financial transaction tax. Combined with weak capital markets, reduced M&A activity, and narrow net interest margins, its makes the XLF and GS sells.

    If the Tea Party wants to do some good they should focus on stopping E.Warren's harebrained ideas...

    Not impressed with this particular representative of the best and the brightest, eh bbro? Well, the Tea Party didn't elect that and unfortunately she's in the RINO-dominated Senate.

    Mr. bbro. (Speaking for the Tea Party)

     

    E. Warren has no ideas. Therefore it's hard to "focus" on them.

     

    We acknowledge that her grandmother had high cheekbones (although some of us still want documentary evidence).

     

    We even concede that she is a Native American (as I am and so do I suspect you is bbro (real Native Americans know the slang).

     

    But this is pure agitprop: "Among Doug Kass' 15 surprises for 2013 will be new Senator Elizabeth Warren spearheading the introduction of a financial transaction tax..."

    I remember many Tea Party members were voted out in November, just a handful left for the late night comedy writers.

    Agree on the "agitprop" comment. Even if it did pass the full Senate (not a sure thing), it would never pass the House. Harebrained legislative proposals are a dime a dozen [transaction tax legislation gets reintroduced every other year] and don't merit being included as a 2013 surprise.

    Look into the CFPB Tschurin, Warren has already circumvented the legislative process.
