No stranger to the ways of Washington, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) knows a thing or two about the politics of power. As the new chairwoman of the U.S. House Financial Services Committee, Rep. Waters dropped by the CAP Action Fund this week to deliver a speech on what she sees as the chief priorities of her committee—and how she plans to hold both the Trump administration and bad financial actors accountable. She also sat down with CAP Action CEO Neera Tanden to discuss how she sees her committee’s role—especially in the backdrop of an administration ill-prepared to address the challenges facing it—in pushing for stronger consumer protections, tackling the housing crisis, and increasing diversity in the financial sector. This episode includes segments from Rep. Waters’ speech and Q&A.
