      Hi, everybody. I'm here with Senator Elizabeth Warren, one of our strongest advocates for families and consumers like you.Today, we want to talk about some of the actions we've taken to protect everything you've worked so hard to build. Eight years ago, after some big banks made irresponsible and risky1 bets with your money, we almost slipped into another Great Depression. While the recklessness started on Wall Street, it didn't take long before it led to real pain for folks on Main Street.It would cost millions of our fellow Americans their jobs, homes, and savings2. The financial crisis wasn't an unstoppable act of nature. The whole thing could have been avoided, but we didn' risks that threatened the whole economy.We didn't have strong protections to keep consumers from being cheated by tricks and traps on financial contracts. So when I took office in the darkest days of the crisis, I promised you we wouldn' recover from crisis we'd rebuild our economy on a new foundation to make sure a crisis like that never happens again.And President Obama delivered. He signed into law the toughest Wall Street reforms and strongest consumer protections in generations.Now, me - I'm a pretty tough grader.These new rules are making our financial system more transparent3, getting rid of a lot of fine print,and making sure that if a bank screws up, you have someone to call so you don't get stuck with the bill. These reforms have already made our financial system safer and more resilient.And part of passing those strong consumer protections meant establishing the first-ever Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, based on an idea that Senator Warren came up with before the crisis even began.Every day, the good people at that independent agency crack down on dishonest and deceptive4 five years have gotten refunds5,pay day lenders, debt collectors, and others that tried to rip them off.Before the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, you didn't have a strong ally to turn to if your bank took advantage of you, or you were being harassed6 or charged inappropriate fees. Now you do.The Bureau is also there to help you make better- decisions. Before you take out a mortgage, or a loan for college or a new car, check out the agency's website - CFPB.gov.It can help you sift7 but very important details.Republicans and big banks who opposed these 9 for President promises to dismantle10 all of it. Now look, about the crisis, but working families sure haven't. And we haven't either. And that's why we're not going to let them give Wall Street the ability to threaten our economy all over again.Whether you're a Democrat11, a Republican, or an independent, if you're a hardworking American who plays by the rules, you should expect Wall Street to play by the rules, too. That's what we're fighting for.It's about basic fairness for everyone. And it's about responsibility from everyone.Thanks to leaders like Senator Warren, our country, our economy, and our families are better off. Let's keep it that way. And thanks for being here, Elizabeth. Thanks for having me, Mr. President.Have a great weekend, everybody.
