Elizabeth Warren on Class Warfare
This clip of Elizabeth Warren on the campaign trail in Massachusetts is making the rounds on the internet and for good reason. First-time candidates don’t usually articulate a progressive economic message quite this well.
For those who can’t watch clips online, Warren, after explaining some of the reasons for the nation’s deep fiscal hole, pointed to a more sensible approach to economic policy in general. “I hear all this, you know, ‘Well, this is class warfare, this is whatever,’” she said. “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.” end quote
Doesn’t she make sense? Isn’t she what America was built on directly by hard working Americans who are sick and tired of the faked sound bytes coming out of Washington? She is speaking to the hearts and minds of the independent, democrat and left leaning right from the blue collar worker to the white collar businesses that are built on fairness and equality.
Elizabeth Warren lays it out there and people are responding to her basic sensibility, intelligence and she hits the nail on the head every time. She’s want the people are starving for and she can delivery the goods.
Warren isn’t necessarily a big Obama supporter, not entirely and Wall Street are afraid of her, big time. Those good plus signs are what makes her even more appealing to the electorate.
She appeals to those democrats who are not enthralled with the democrats handling of the financial reform bill which left huge loopholes for the big banks to swim through.
Warren appeals to the sense of -The Sensible in all of Us.
This is why Wall Street Shrivels Up whenever Elizabeth Warren Speaks
