The Hill reports:
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) trolled Chase Bank after the bank’s attempt at sharing personal finance advice on Twitter was met with backlash. Chase’s original tweet, which has since been deleted, was criticized for appearing to mock people for spending money on things like coffee, food and taxis. In response, Warren sent a tweet mocking Chase in part by pointing out that the bank received a bailout after the financial crash.

.@Chase: why aren’t customers saving money?
Taxpayers: we lost our jobs/homes/savings but gave you a $25b bailout
Workers: employers don’t pay living wages
Economists: rising costs + stagnant wages = 0 savings
Chase: guess we’ll never know
