Murray pounds Wall Street

TACOMA — Wall Street played “Russian roulette” with the nation’s future and shouldn’t be allowed to do it again, Sen. Patty Murray told a cheering crowd of about 1,000 here.

“I vowed on my watch Main Street will never again be left holding the bag by Wall Street,” she said.

Vice President Joe Biden continued the theme, saying big money is pouring into the state to defeat Democrats because some people are frightened that “we’re beginning reassert the right of the middle class, to have a middle class.”

People are underestimating Democrats nationally, writing their politica obituaries too soon, Biden said.

“They said the Huskies couldn’t beat USC  on Saturday, but they did,” said Biden, who was sporting a purple UW hat.
