Cory Booker not happy with Wall Street giveaway.

Cory Booker is not very happy with the Wall Street giveaway tucked inside a $1.1 trillion bill to fund most of the federal government for a year. The provision provides taxpayer subsidies to risky financial derivatives by allowing banks to trade them from subsidiaries insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.

"This is wrong," Booker said. "I'm outraged. I am frustrated that we are not on the floor debating this and instead are having this put into a bill that everyone says must pass." Watch more of Senator Booker's comments on the Wall Street giveaway below:
