DRAFT WARREN FOR 2016!

OUT WITH THE OLD ARISTOCRACY AND IN WITH THE NEW GROW THE MIDDLE CLASS TO END POVERTY IN AMERICA!

The FOUR things the GOP can’t stand about SENAT0R EIizabeth Warren (D-MA)

# 1 She’s Honest.

# 2 She’s Smart

# 3 She’s a WOMAN!!!

# 4 She is TOUGH!

From the Book “A FIGHTING CHANCE” by Elizabeth Warren 2014

MIDDLE CLASS FUTURE = “Here’s the hard truth: America isn’t building that kind of future any longer.”

“There’s been a lot of freeloading, but the freeloading has been by the biggest financial institutions who got bailed out by the American taxpayers, who broke the law and were never held responsible….Here’s the key part — nobody went to jail for any part of this. The only people in America today who go to jail are regular folks. Big financial institutions get out there, they launder drug money, they violate the law, and still no one is held accountable. I think that’s fundamentally wrong.”

 — Senator Elizabeth Warren

“Today the game is rigged-rigged to work for those who have money and power. Big corporations hire armies of lobbyists to get billion-dollar loopholes into the tax system and persuade their friends in Congress to support laws that keep the playing field tilted in their favor. Meanwhile, hardworking families are told that they’ll just have to live with smaller dreams for their children.”

“Over the past generation, America’s determination to give every kid access to affordable college or technical training has faded. The basic infrastructure that helps us build thriving businesses and jobs-the roads, bridges, and power grids-has crumbled. The scientific and medical research that has sparked miraculous cures and inventions from the Internet to nanotechnology is starved for funding, and the research pipeline is shrinking. The optimism that defines us as a people has been beaten and bruised….It doesn’t have to be this way.”

“I am determined-fiercely determined-to do everything I can to help us once again be the America that creates opportunities for anyone who works hard and plays by the rules. An America of accountability and fair play. An America that builds a future for not just some of our children but for all of our children. An America where everyone gets what I got: a fighting chance.”

“a single, deeper threat: America’s middle class is under attack. Worse, it’s not under attack by some unstoppable force of nature. It’s in trouble because the game is deliberately rigged.”

“This book tells a very public story about fraud and bailouts and elections….It’s also a story about losing, learning, and getting stronger along the way. It’s a story about what’s worth fighting for, and how sometimes, even when we fight against very powerful opponents, we can win.”

“I’m from the Elizabeth Warren wing of the party.” = Same progressives who voted for Barack Obama in 2008 and are determined to find a 2016 contender to run.

Warren = “a strand of pearls short of looking like the head of the PTA.”

FACT: Politics = A necessary evil

WARREN = Meteoric rise in the Democratic Party

WARREN = “America’s middle class is under attack.” + “The game is deliberately rigged” + “Politics so often felt dirty to me.” = Central to the Democratic Party AND addressing income inequality + anti-Wall Street sentiment that helped elect Bill de Blasio as the mayor of NYC

Warren = “Before the 2012 campaign, the most fund-raising experience she had was a “ferocious effort” to help her daughter’s Brownie troop sell cookies.” = Her campaign went on to raise $42 million, setting a 2012 Senate fund-­raising record. = Mostly from small donations.

Warren = A leading expert in debates about predatory lending practices and bankruptcy legislation = A thorn in the financial industry’s side.

WARREN = Idea some banks are too big to fail = “allows the megabanks to operate like drunks on a wild weekend in Vegas.” Unlike American families who fall behind on their debts who are usually “desperately ashamed of their situation” bankers express NO REMORSE!

Warren = Middle Class = Saddled with health care costs or tricked into taking out subprime mortgages with egregious terms hidden in the fine print. = Her 1st book in 2003, “The Two-Income Trap: Why Middle-Class Parents Are Going Broke.” = Met with Hillary Clinton in 1998 to discuss bankruptcy protections for struggling middle-class families. = Criticize Clinton’s coziness to Wall Street as a New York senator.

WARREN = Nagged Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner to buckle his seatbelt

WARREN = Humble goofiness + Fiery advocate for MIDDLE CLASS

WARREN = Bureau to protect consumers = Lit up both political parties in 2011 when she said, at a campaign stop, “There is nobody in this country who got rich on his own.”

SENAT0R EIizabeth Warren (D-MA) is the Teddy Roosevelt for Democrats!

“We need to call out these filibusters for what they are: naked attempts to nullify the results of the last Presidential election—to force us to govern as though President Obama hadn’t won the 2012 election.”

  — SENATOR Elizabeth Warren (D-MA)

SOMEONE WITH STRONG UNDERSTANDING OF BANKING NEEDS TO TAKE OUT THE BANKER TRASH!

Geithner opposed to Elizabeth Warren, the only person in DC with integrity.With that kind of enemy SHE IS BOUND TO BE A WINNER!

“There’s been such a sense that there’s one set of rules for trillion-dollar FlNANClAL institutions and a different set for all the rest of us. It’s so pervasive that it’s not even hidden.”

— SENATOR ELlZABETH WARREN (D-MA)

 

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) rejected BS that affordable housing mandates for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac caused the financial crisis, five years after it began.

(WATCH: The ten best Elizabeth Warren viral videos out there)

FED STUDY FINDINGS: Analyzed data from two states hardest-hit by the mortgage crisis and found that “purchases of risky PRlVATE-LABEL mortgage-backed securities by the GSEs were due to PRlVATE GREED not to Carter-era Community Reinvestment Act.

“While the crisis was massive and painful — and its impact continues to weigh on middle-class families to this day — its underlying cause was fairly clear. The GSEs [government-sponsored enterprises] made significant mistakes — mistakes that cost taxpayers dearly — but those mistakes were not the underlying cause of the crisis.

Although Fannie and Freddie purchased securities backed by subprime loans, and some of those purchases helped fulfill their affordable housing goals, the St. Louis Fed economists found that the housing goals had no impact — no impact — on either the number of subprime loans originated or the price of those loans in the private-label market.  Affordable housing goals have been scapegoated by those who have been itching to get rid of the goals for a long time, but I think it’s time to drop that red herring.”

 — Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) said to the Mortgage Bankers Association’s – Warren said Fannie and Freddie’s cost taxpayers $187 billion since being taken under government conservatorship in 2008  compared to $1OO’s of trillions in fraud and greed.

“House Republicans seem ready to…continue their fight against the promises of equality that define country, to resist the will of the American people.”

 — Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA)

 “There’s something wrong when the big banks that nearly DESTROYED OUR ECONOMY can take out GOVERNMENT loans for less than 1%, while students will be paying 6.8% for loans starting this summer.”

 — SENATOR ELlZABETH WARREN – new bill would let students borrow at the same low rate big banks get — helping YOUNG| people afford COLLEGE and strengthening the ECONOMY. PROTECTOR OF THE MlDDLE CLASS

“If you’re caught with an Ounce of COCAlNE, the chances are good that you’re going to go to JAlL…but evidently if you launder nearly a $Billion for drug carteIs, your company pays a fine and you go home and sleep in your own bed at night. I think that’s fundamentally wrong.”

 — SENATOR ELlZABETH WARREN 

“Because this is a democracy. And in a democracy, hostage tactics are the last resort for those who can’t otherwise win their fights through elections, can’t win their fights in Congress, can’t win their fights for the Presidency, and can’t win their fights in Courts.  For this right-wing minority, hostage-taking is all they have left – a last gasp of those who cannot cope with the realities of our democracy.”

 — SENATOR ELlZABETH WARREN 

“About a century ago, when corrosive greed threatened 0UR EC0N0MY and 0UR way of Iife, the American people came together under the leadership of Teddy RooseveIt and other progressives, to bring our nation back from the BRlNK.

We started to take CHlLDREN out of factories and put them in schools. We began to give meaning to the words “C0NSUMER PR0TECTl0N” by making our food and medicine safe. And we gave the little guys a better chance to compete by preventing the BlG guys from rigging the markets. We turned adversity into progress because that’s what we do.”

— SENAT0R ELlZABETH WARREN (D-MA), Senate Candidate at Democratic Convention

“Now is the time to rebuild America’s MlDDLE CLASS. Instead of giving tax breaks to the already-rich and already-powerful, to the CORPORATlONS and CEOs who have already made it, it’s time America recognized the working people and small businesses who are still trying to build a future.”

 — SENATOR EIizabeth Warren (D-MA) 

“We need to call out these filibusters for what they are: naked attempts to nullify the results of the last Presidential election—to force us to govern as though President Obama hadn’t won the 2012 election.”

  — SENATOR Elizabeth Warren (D-MA)
