Pence casts tie vote to strip consumer financial protections

Hosted by

Late last night, Vice President Mike Pence broke a tie vote in the Senate, which sent a measure to President Trump eliminating a rule by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau to allow consumers to sue banks.  Democrat Elizabeth Warren was outraged, calling the bill "a giant wet kiss to Wall Street." Jessica Silver-Greenberg covered the vote for the New York Times.
