Democrat’s ‘A Better Deal’ Press Conference Highlights Party’s Divide

Sen. Schumer wasn’t too happy when he got asked about Glass–Steagall legislation, but Sen. Waren could hardly contain her excitement.

Democrats unveiled “A Better Deal” on Monday, and the press conference that followed the event highlighted how the party is still divided on issues dealing with Wall Street reform.

A woman who attended Monday’s event asked Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) why “A Better Deal” didn’t include new Glass–Steagall legislation.

Schumer seemed annoyed by the woman’s question, but Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), who was standing behind Schumer, could hardly contain her excitement.

“We are going to talk about some of the issues dealing with Wall Street and short termism and all these things in future months. Today we unveiled these three issues,” Schumer responded as Warren danced a brief jig behind him.
