Elizabeth Warren has announced her candidacy for Edward Kennedy's Senate seat, now held by an former nude male pinup. Warren is a law professor at Harvard. The Republican party wants her pay to stop. Yes, the same party that wants corporations and millionaires to not pay taxes, wants a working woman to lose her income, because she wants to run against a Republican.
Warren knows of the ways of the banksters of Wall Street. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is a new government agency. Elizabeth Warren could have been its first leader. The Senate Republicans would have done anything to block that, because she would have been able, and would have done what the job required. Republicans do not want effective governance. Republicans do not believe in the concept of consumer financial protection. President Obama avoids standing up for real Democrats against Republicans oftentimes.
You can watch and hear her recently on youtube, attacking the lying, absurd, nonsense the Republicans are spewing in their orwellian 'class warfare' :
“I hear all this, you know, ‘Well, this is class warfare, this is whatever. No. There is nobody in this country who got rich on his own — nobody.“You built a factory out there? Good for you. But I want to be clear. You moved your goods to market on the roads the rest of us paid for. You hired workers the rest of us paid to educate. You were safe in your factory because of police-forces and fire-forces that the rest of us paid for. You didn’t have to worry that marauding bands would come and seize everything at your factory — and hire someone to protect against this — because of the work the rest of us did.“Now look, you built a factory and it turned into something terrific, or a great idea. God bless — keep a big hunk of it. But part of the underlying social contract is, you take a hunk of that and pay forward for the next kid who comes along.”
