Elizabeth Warren Wants To Ruin A Bunch Of Rich Folks' Vacations

The Massachusetts senator wants to end the practice of providing plush perks that incentivize bad behavior.

So, that happened. This week, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) embarrassed Wall Street again, this time with a new report detailing the extent to which bad financial advisors get lavish vacations as a reward for steering clients into terrible investments.

At the rate she's going, America may not have a grifter sector of the economy left in which these people can make money. 

Meanwhile, Congress has been so agreeable lately, getting a budget agreement and a new speaker of the House in short, peaceable order. And Speaker Paul Ryan could not be happier, now that his sweetheart deal has gotten even sweeter. Finally, the third GOP debate is in the books. 'Twas a Bush beatdown, by and large -- but was Rubio the big winner? Not so fast, Marco.

"So, That Happened" hosts Jason Linkins, Zach Carter and Arthur Delaney are joined this week by HuffPost reporters Marina Fang, Shahien Nasiripour and Lauren Weber.
