People praised Porter’s unrelenting line of questioning.
You are an incredible asset to the House. Thank you for your hard work and razor-sharp, fact-based questioning!

During the financial crisis, Chase took over multiple failed banks along with billions of dollars of loans, which Dimon assured in a memo wasn’t out of greed:
“Counter to what most people think, many of the extreme actions we took were not done to make a profit; they were done to support our country and the financial system.”
But many were skeptical after hearing his answers to Porter.

Maybe #JamieDimon should try a month living on this women's salary. He makes $31 million a year and is severely out of touch

If Representatives like Porter keep holding billionaires like Dimon accountable for the conditions of their employees, maybe they and the boards of these banks will take more consideration when deciding how much they need to live.
