Skip to comments.The Middle Class Squeeze: Can The Populist Elizabeth Warren Champion The Little Guy With Big Gov't?

Who will prove the champion of the little guy and gal? Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) on deck for her partys presidential nomination should Hillary Rodham Clinton bow out has become the political leader of choice for those who advocate Big Government as that champion.
This columnist is skeptical about Big Government improving the lives of the citizens. Yet there is a case to be made for Warren. She is, at very least, a magnificently worthy adversary for advocates of limited government and deserves to be taken seriously.
America has had a decade of lousy job creation and wage stagnation under both parties. Since President Nixon ended the Bretton Woods international gold-exchange standard, America has struggled through 40+ years of middle income households treading water and workers losing ground. Compounding wage stagnation, now, is a rising cost of living (masked by artifacts of the CPI algorithm yet nonetheless real).
In a recent poll conducted by the national polling firm QEV 41% of Ohio voters said that the greatest impact on them and their families is the rising cost of living. Thats more than the combined total of those who considered the lack of job opportunity (24%) or wages not going up (13%). These sentiments are consistent with other poll results and are representative of widespread sentiment.
Call it the middle class squeeze. As a result of the middle class squeeze, we natives are restless.
We little guys and gals really would welcome someone in the capital championing our interests. Who might that be?

“Champion the little guy”
LMFAO This lyin elitist affirmative action’d beyotch is helping destroy the middle class
How about the little guy and gal? I've told my kids, the key to success is hidden under the alarm clock.
Only things that an save the middle class at this point are gas dropping back under two bucks, Obamacare being gutted and corporate taxes getting cut in half.
Nothing else can save us.
Looking at her nose diving book sales on Amazon.com....methinks Elizabeth Warren is going nowhere...politically, except with the left-wing lunatics!!! Looked at it yesterday....and it was #70 on the bestseller list, and dropping like a heavy anchor thrown into the sea!!! Probably worse today!!!
“Populist” Elizabeth Warren?! Any nitwit, so demented as to think that this vile, overt communist is a “populist”, should be institutionalized immediately.
Yeah, that’s the ticket.
"See how colorful, shinning and glorious are the Empress' New Clothes!"
(WHAT IS THIS GUY SMOKIN'?)
Not in the same sentence, please.
What a laugh, big government for the little guy, hahahah.
But in truth he is your Loser Uncle who is 54 Years Old, lives in his '92 beat up Chevy, who knocked up the pastor's daughter years ago, can't hold a job, and his home-away is a jail cell.
Guess “Populist” sounds better than “Communist” .
The more relevant question is “can the moron Warren find her ass with both hands?”
I am willing to spot her not just both hands, but a map, a compass, a global positioning system, and a seeing-eye-dog, as well. But it would be in vain, as she would still only come up with an epic, double face-palm worthy " FAIL "...
