Wall Street is saying Elizabeth Warrens 2020 campaign must be stopped


Wall Street, being an inanimate object, has no voice. The thread title should read "Jim Cramer (paraphrasing anonymous sources) is saying Elizabeth Warren's 2020 campaign must be stopped".
Well now you're just being coy. As you know, the headline isn't talking about the inanimate object of the actual paved street. It's referring to the executives who work there who are a perfect cross section of the ownership class—CEO's, investors, banks, speculators, all of which speak in one remarkably consistent voice—anti-democratic, pro-corporate power. Obviously they want to stop her campaign, not even because she might (but probably won't) win, but because they don't want her spreading all those dangerous ideas about democracy and corporate influence for the next year.

Do you really think Cramer talked to a few oddballs on Wall Street who don't want her campaign to pick up steam?

Leaders in the financial industry are really worried about the possibility of Sen. Elizabeth Warren becoming president, CNBC’s Jim Cramer said Tuesday.

“When you get off the desk and talk to executives, they’re more fearful of her winning,” Cramer said on “Squawk on the Street.” Cramer said he’s hearing a “she’s got to be stopped” mantra bubbling up among executives on Wall Street and elsewhere. CNBC’s David Faber told Cramer on Tuesday’s “Squawk on the Street” that he’s hearing the same rumblings about Wall Street being fearful of a Warren presidency.

“It’s another reason why companies are being implored to do things now ... because come early to mid-2020 if Elizabeth Warren is rolling along, everybody is going to be like, ‘That’s it,’” Faber said.

That does it. I'm voting for Warren.
