Elizabeth Warren Prepares to Punish the U.S. Economy and Investors with Her Misnamed "Stop Wall Street Looting Act"

As the U.S. economy shows sudden weakness, American consumers understandably express increasing anxiety.  A troubling new Gallup survey reports that economic confidence has now declined to lows unsurpassed since the early days of the Covid pandemic in 2020.

Undeterred by that accumulating weakness and alarm, however, Senator Elizabeth Warren (D - Massachusetts) appears restless to strike yet another dangerous hammer blow by re-introducing her misnamed "Stop Wall Street Looting Act."

A Northwest Florida man was arrested a day after he robbed a bank at gunpoint.
 
Jorman Sampaio, 26, walked into the Union State Bank carrying a silver handgun.  After making the employees get on the floor, Sampaio left with about $6,000.  On his way out the door, he dropped a surgical-style glove on the bank floor.  While the investigators combed the scene, a man found a wallet in the street near the bank.
 
Investigators used the image from Sampaio’s ID card to create a photo lineup, from which employees identified him with relative certainty to be the bank robber.  When lawmen executed a search warrant at his home, they found a surgical glove consistent with the one found at the bank, a silver semi-automatic handgun and cash.
 
Sampaio was booked into the county jail.
