Elizabeth Warren, a Senator FROM Massachusetts, a Senator FOR America

Upon winning election to the U.S. Senate, Elizabeth Warren had this to say,

“For every family that has been chipped at, squeezed, and hammered, we are going to fight for a level playing field, and we are going to put people back to work. To all the small business owners who are tired of a system rigged against them, we are going to hold the big guys accountable. To all the seniors who deserve to retire with the security they earned, we’re going to make sure your Medicare and Social Security benefits are protected, and that millionaires and billionaires pay their fair share of taxes. And to all the young people, to all the young people who did everything right and are drowning in debt, we’re going to invest in you. To all of the service members and your families who fought so hard for us, we’re going to fight for you.”

Thank God! We think we have another Wellstone.

  1. I am very pleased at Elizabeth Warren’s win!
    On another note: here is an interesting article from the Toronto Star on the need for infrastructure redesign and rebuild. It is a practical, “constructive” approach to reintroducing a concern for the common good.
    Thanks so much for The Dissenting Democrat. It is a puddle of sanity in a very muddy ocean.

  2. Actually she grew up in Oklahoma (her dialect should give away that she is not from MA) but kudos to her regardless of what state she represents in the Senate.
