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.

The difficulties of pounding elk hide robes on rocks by the stream, the hardship of finding new teepee poles every two or three years ...
Obamas’ fault. That has a nice ring to it.
My heart soars like an Eagle...
walking uphill both ways to school......
Her mouth flows like a babbling brook of buffalo urine on the plains...
It's working for faux Indians who check the box.
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.
You already come up on Google with that one...
Socialism by another name.
High cheekbone lady speakum with forked tongue Kemosabe.
Really!?! Woo hoo!
Middle class, my ass These b******* are destroying it
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.
“walking uphill both ways to school......”
She’ll claim she lived on the top of a high hill and the school was on another high hill therefore............
Middle class. We should stop using any term that includes the word class. It’s a collectivist wedge.
Back then, high schoolers were more knowledgeable than most of today’s college graduates...we also had an industrial base that was located in AMERICA, not China, Vietnam, Japan or Mexico. Princess Fauxahontas should ask a union guy to explain what happened /s
Just goes to show you that in America, even a marxist liar can be elected to Congress, or the White House, or both.
Don’t forget barefoot in the snow in July.
