“I’m the only one on this stage that has gotten anything really big done,” Biden said, citing his history of passing legislation such as the Violence Against Women Act during his time in the Senate.

Warren retorted that she had established the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), which she proposed in 2007.

Biden responded by citing his part in the Obama administration’s establishment of the CFPB, telling Warren, “I went on the floor and got you votes” for the program, creating a notably tense exchange between the two.

“I am deeply grateful to President Obama, who fought so hard to make sure that agency was passed into law, and I am deeply grateful to every single person who fought for it and who helped pass it into law,” Warren said.


“You did a hell of a job in your job,” Biden responded, prompting Warren to thank him.

Sanders, meanwhile, countered by pointing to legislation spearheaded by Biden that he has frequently pilloried, including the North American Free Trade Agreement, the 1990s crime bill and the Iraq War.

“You got the disastrous war in Iraq done. You got a bankruptcy bill that’s hurting middle class Americans all over the country,” Sanders said.
