Elizabeth Warren Details Middle-Class Struggles, Political Fights in New Book
ABC News ^ | April 21, 2014 | By ARLETTE SAENZ

Posted on 04/21/2014 4:13:43 PM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., has served in the U.S. Senate for less than two years, but her message of economic populism and boosting the middle class has catapulted her to stardom with Democrats nationwide.

In her new book, "A Fighting Chance," Warren reflects on growing up in a middle-class family in Oklahoma and shares how that upbringing shaped her mission to help struggling middle-class families.

“I wrote this book out of gratitude. I am the daughter of someone who ended up as a maintenance man, a woman who worked a minimum-wage job at Sears. And I ended up in the United States Senate because I grew up in an America that was investing in kids, that was building a strong middle class,” she said. “We're not doing that anymore. And Washington isn't working for families. It's working for big corporations. It's working for billionaires, not for families. And so this is just the continuation of my work. I wrote 'A Fighting Chance' because that's what I want every kid to have.”

Hard to believe she was a Republican for most of her life. It seems the Republicans who turn to Democrats are the absolute worst......Warren, Hillary, Teresa Kerry, Christ and so many others.

There is a reason, tracing to motivation.

A Democrat who becomes a Republican usually does so for the sake of principle.

A Republican who becomes a Democrat usually does so in the pursuit of power.

Middle class. We should stop using any term that includes the word class. It’s a collectivist wedge.

What ever shall we do without government to keep us safe from fictitious bad people (in exchange, of course, for our rights and property)?

Think of the most ignorant person you have ever met—male, female, any age, and they will pale next to Warren.

She must hire people to bash her in the head with a stupid hammer every day, just to get going in the morning.

Well, Senators do need staffs I guess.

I thought it was illegal to write a book while holding office. If I remember Hillary was paid for her book up front because she was going to the senate. They paid her, then she took office, then she wrote the book so that made it all legal.

Never criticize squaw until you walk a mile in her mocassins, and

No pitch Ti-pi near Buffalo Pi-Pi

I would have doubts she wrote any of this and may have just rehashed some previous writings given her history of plagiarism may well have copied other parts.
