"There is nobody in this country who got rich on his own. Nobody. ... You moved your goods to market on the roads the rest of us paid for; you hired workers the rest of us paid to educate; you were safe in your factory because of police forces and fire forces that the rest of us paid for. You didn't have to worry that marauding bands would come and seize everything at your factory, and hire someone to protect against this, because of the work the rest of us did. Now look, you built a factory and it turned into something terrific, or a great idea. God bless. Keep a big hunk of it. But part of the underlying social contract is, you take a hunk of that and pay forward for the next kid who comes along."

 

Truer political words were never spoken.

Pocohantas Warren is a liar equal to oblameo. Deval Patrick, gov. of Mass. is throwing signals he may want to run for president. Another incompetent liar. I live in the Socialist Comm. of Mass. The legislature is one party and they just voted to tie gas taxes to inflation. They will never take the heat again for voting for higher gas taxes. It's automatic now. hahaha. I don't care about it. I am retired and put less than 6,000 miles on my car per year. A full take of gas lasts a month. I do what the legislators do and buy everything in New Hampshire and dodge state sales taxes. I am retired fed so i pay no state income taxes on that. I get a property tax abatement for wounds suffered in Vietnam. My disability from the army is non-taxable. Depreciation on rental property covers the tax on income from the property. Energy costs are %25 discounted because I am over 65. Thanks for everything. I live well. Why do dems hate the poor?

Well, tying the gas tax to inflation just makes sense to me. You think the cost of road construction & maintenance doesn't go up with inflation? (btw - Elizabeth Warren would have had nothing to do with passing that law, though she might agree with it)

 

So ---- you say you are getting lots of money & tax breaks from the government. Why then do you claim to hate it so much?

 

(btw - I hear Mass has a great healthcare system for those who don't have employer insurance ---- so good in fact, it was adopted as a national model)

MassHealth runs a deficit. Oblameocare will run a deficit. Money and talent are leaving Mass. The only New England state that benefits from this migration is New Hampshire. Taxes and regulations are helping N. H. get some of the Mass. money. The southern part of N. H. is now composed of a lot of Mass expatriates. The native N. H. Citizens call them Massholes. A Masshole is a person who leaves Mass because of taxes, buys a home in N. H. and immediately starts to demand services. These services raise taxes in N. H.. See, Massholes. The rest of the people leaving are mostly older. The kids are gone and the house is too big, property taxes too high, sales taxes, excise taxes, and all the fees that go with living in Mass. I know people who have left. They head to Fla. and other states where social security or income is not taxed at the state level. Mass lost a seat in the U.S. house because of the migration. Barney Frank has his district eliminated so he retired. The influx of people into Mass are illegals and people who want to get on the dole. This causes taxes to rise more. I would leave in a heartbeat if I was paying for any of this. I don't mind the cold and I don't pay for the foolishness. This state is going right back to the days of when Dukakass was gov. and the state was know as taxachusettes. It's for the children. hahahaha.

She is way better than Clinton imo. The republicans only argument against her is that her parents told her she was native American (which she was but not veey much) and she identified herself as one. Underwear model Scott Brown thought that was his winning ticket and knew he couldn't actually debate the issues. He looked like an idiot.

I could argue all that ---- but first let me remind Elizabeth Warren is not and has never been a Governor or State Congressperson or State Senator in Massachusetts.

Pocahontas is cut from the same mold as all Mass. political hacks. Tax and spend until there is nothing left. The wealthy in Mass. vote dem and dodge all the taxes. Kennedy's mother never left Mass. but claimed residence in Fla. for tax purposes. Kerry registered his boat in little rhody for tax purposes and when he got caught denied it. He moved the boat back to mass. State legislator was photographed in New Hampshire buying a case of whiskey. 3 of the last 5 Speakers of the House were indicted for corruption and convicted. President of the Senate in jail. Only a handful of GOP in legislature. This is what the residents desire. This is what they vote for. This is what they get. The poor are all on the dole and fraud is rampant. Barter is the newest tax dodge. Even Professionals are doing it. A dentist will fix your teeth and you will put a deck on his house. The poor get a pittance and a lot of them like it. Generations in this state have never worked. The money is running out here. The rich could care less about gasoline taxes or any other taxes. They don't pay. The Mass. sales taxes, gasoline taxes, excise taxes and fees for every thing only hurt the working stiff and the poor. Come on up and try to start a business. You will be amazed at what you have to put up with. Ed Brooke was the last GOP senator. Keep your eye on Mass. and you will see what happens to a one party dem. state.

Or is it that you just want to receive services from government and not have to help pay for them?

 

What parts of the above statement do you disagree with and why? (Or are you just parroting Glen Beck, Sean Hannity, Mike Huckabee, Rush Limbaugh, Rand/Ron Paul, etc in your dislike for Senator Warren without really understanding why?)

 

Do you not drive on the public roadways?

Do you want to get rid of all public education.

Do you want all public utilities (electricity, water, natural gas, sewers, etc) privatized? How would that work?

Do you want to defend yourself against foreign invasion?

Do you think we shouldn't have old-age and medical insurance for the elderly?

Shall all fire departments be privatized?

Should all police forces be privatized.

Should the goverment not have any kind of labor standards at all?

Should the government not have any involvement whatsoever in product safety?

Should the health, home, and auto insurance industries be entirely unregulated?

Should banks and the financial industry be entirely unregulated?

Should we end all cancer treatment trials at the NIH?

Get rid of the CDC?

Pull all the Federal meat inspectors out of chicken processing plants?

Let toymakers put lead paint on childrens' toys again?

 

Elizabeth Warren is not some kind of socialist boogeyman. She is a rational, logical, educated person who happens to believe government plays an important role in our lives.

 

 

"Mr. President, we are now three days into a completely unnecessary, completely avoidable Republican shutdown, and there is more talk than ever about our inability of our leaders to find common ground on central economic and fiscal issues of our time.

 

The government shutdown is throwing a major wrench into a fragile economic recovery.

Nearly 1 million federal employees are sitting at home for no reason, and other public servants are working but not earning a paycheck. Cancer patients are being turned away from clinical trials at the NIH. Veterans’ benefits are at risk. Basic nutrition services for pregnant women and new moms will be disrupted. Small businesses won’t be able to get federal loan guarantees.

And all this is happening on top of the idiotic sequester – drastic, across-the-board spending cuts – that have crippled Meals on Wheels, Head Start, and investments in medical research.

 

We all know how we got here. For years now, we’ve heard a small minority in this country rail against government.

When I hear the latest tirades from some of the extremists in the House, I am struck by how vague these complaints are.

From their rhetoric, you’d think they believe that anytime that we the people come together to improve our lives that the nation is committing some terrible wrong.

 

From their rhetoric, you’d think they believe that the government that functions best is a government that doesn’t function at all.

So far, they haven’t ended government but they have achieved the next best thing: shutting the government down.

But behind all the slogans of the Tea Party and all the thinly veiled calls for anarchy in Washington, behind all that there’s a reality.

The American people don’t want the extremist Republican’s bizarre vision of a future without government. They don’t support it. Why? Because the American people know that without government, we would no longer be a great nation with a bright future. The American people know that government matters.

 

The anarchy gang is quick to malign government but when was the last time anyone called for regulators to go easier on companies that put lead in children’s toys? Or for food inspectors to stop checking whether the meat in our grocery stores is crawling with deadly bacteria? Or for the FDA to ignore whether morning sickness drugs will cause horrible deformities in little babies? We never hear that, not from political leaders in Washington and not from the American people.

 

In fact, whenever the anarchy gang makes headway in their efforts to damage our government, the opposite happens.

After the sequester kicked in, Republicans immediately turned around and called on us to protect funding for our national defense and keep the air traffic controllers on the job.

 

And now that the House Republicans have shut down the government, holding the country hostage because of some imaginary health care bogeyman, Republicans almost immediately turned around and called on us to start re-opening parts of our government.

Why do they do this? Because the bogeyman government is like the bogeyman under the bed. It’s not real. It doesn’t exist.

What is real, what does exist, are all those specific and important things that we as Americans have chosen to do together through our government.

 

In our democracy, government is not some make-believe thing that has an independent will of its own. In our democracy, government is just how we describe the things that we the people have already decided to do together.

It’s not complicated. Our government has three basic functions: Provide for the national defense, put in place rules of the road – like speed limits and bank regulations that are fair and transparent, and build the things together that none of us can build alone – roads, power grids, schools – the things that give everyone a chance to succeed.

 

We are a nation of innovators and entrepreneurs, growing small businesses and thriving big businesses. But our people succeed – our country succeeds – because we have all come together to put public institutions and infrastructure together.

We all decided to pass laws to put cops on the beat so that no one steals your purse on Main Street or your pension on Wall Street.

We all decided to invest in public education so that businesses have skilled workers and a kid with an idea can create the next breakthrough company.

 

We all decided to invest in basic science so there is a great pipeline of ideas to create our future.

These achievements aren’t magic. They didn’t simply occur on their own or through dumb luck. In each instance, we made a choice as a people to come together.

 

The Food and Drug Administration makes sure that the white pills that we take are antibiotics and not baking soda.

 

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration oversees crash tests to make sure that all new cars have effective brakes.

 

The Consumer Product Safety Commission makes sure that baby’s car seats don’t collapse in a crash and the toasters don’t explode.

 

We don’t know who they are. But there is no question that there are Americans alive today, Americans who are healthier, Americans who are stronger because of these and countless other government efforts. Alive, healthier, stronger because of what we did together.

The anarchy gang at the House can dump on their make-believe version of government all they want. But when the real government fails to live up to the high expectations we have all set for it, politicians in both parties rush to outrage. Why? Because the American people know that government can work and believe government should work.

 

Today – that’s right, today – marks the fifth anniversary of President Bush signing the bank bailout into law. That financial crisis cost us upwards of $14 trillion. That’s trillion with a T. That’s $120,000 for every American household, more than two years worth of income for the average family. Billions of dollars in retirement savings disappeared. Millions of workers lost their jobs. And millions more families lost their homes.

In April 2011, after a two-year bipartisan inquiry, the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations released a 635 page report that made it plain regulators could have and should have used their existing tools to prevent the crisis. Republicans and Democrats, a bipartisan group, found strong agreement that – you better believe it – government matters.

 

The attacks on government are abstract, but the consequences of this shutdown are real. Less accountability for cheaters and rule breakers. Less opportunity for our children. Cracks in the foundations that businesses need to succeed. And a tilted playing field that limits opportunities for all of our people.

 

We know the government doesn’t always work. We know that no institution is infallible. People make mistakes. Ideas fail, and sometimes we get things wrong.

 

But our response isn’t to give up. Our response isn’t to sit back and say, “I told you so.” We’re not a nation of quitters!

Our response – the American response is to fix it, to make government work better.

 

Our democracy is an experiment, and it’s always evolving. We constantly re-design and re-imagine and improve on what we do together. But time and time again throughout our history, we have reaffirmed the simple truth that government matters.

And right now, right at this moment, if you look closely, you’ll see that we are reaffirming it once again.

 

It’s not an accident that the desire to shutdown government is confined to one extremist faction of one political party of one chamber of Congress of one branch of government.

 

It is not an accident that this extremist faction must resort to absurd hostage tactics, threats to turn off the government, threats to default on our debts, threats to tank the economy, to force their views on everyone else.

 

And it’s not an accident that this faction is doing everything in its power to make government appear dysfunctional.

 

In a democracy, these hostage tactics are the last resort for those who can’t win their fights through elections, can’t win their fights through Congress, can’t win their fights for the Presidency, and can’t win their fights in court.

But these threats are not working and they will never work because this is a democracy, and for more than 200 years our democracy has defeated extremists and rejected the idea that government doesn’t matter.

 

So, Mr. President, to those who have forced us to the brink, to those who rail against a make-believe government, to those who seem to rejoice in anarchy, to those who have salivated at the chance to shut down our government because their extremist views have left them disconnected from the experiences of the American people, it is time to hear a simple message:

 

You can do your best to make government look like it doesn’t work when you stop it from working. You can do your best to make government look paralyzed when you paralyze it. You can do your best to make government look incompetent through your incompetence and ineffective through your ineffectiveness. But sooner or later, the government will re-open because this is a democracy and this democracy has already rejected your views. We have already chosen to do these things together. We all know that we are stronger when we come together.

When this government re-opens, when our markets are safe again, when our scientists can return to their research, when our small businesses can borrow, when our veterans can be respected for their service, when our flu shots resume and our Head Start programs get back to teaching our kids, we will have rejected your views once again.

 

We are not a country of anarchists. We are not a country of pessimists and ideologues whose motto is “I got mine, the rest of you are on your own.” We are not a country that tolerates dangerous drugs, unsafe meat, dirty air or toxic mortgages. We are not that nation. We have never been that nation, and we will never be that nation.

 

Today, a political minority in the House that condemns government and begged for this shutdown has had its day. But like all the reckless and extremist factions that have come before it, their day will pass, and our democracy will return to the important work that we have already chosen to do together."

What an asinine thing for Warren to say.

 

The people engaged in commerce are the very ones who paid for the road that Warren takes to work everyday to attack them.

 

The top 20% pay 106% of the taxes.

You disagree with the progressive income tax then?

 

What taxes has Senator Warren propoosed that you disagree with? Speciically.

 

"Now is the time to rebuild America's middle class. Instead of giving tax breaks to the already-rich and already-powerful, to the corporations 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.

 

Our self-employed and small businesses, and the community banks that fund them, are drowning in complicated regulations. Long, complex rules create loopholes that the big companies can take advantage of, but they leave little guys out in the cold. We need rules that are written with small businesses in mind. We need straightforward rules that any small business can deal with, like the short and streamlined mortgage form the consumer agency is putting into law." Elizabeth Warren

Hey PolitiBlinders...apparently you're not watching Warren's own tax dodges!

 

You're the blind following the hypocite!


Warren Groupies have NO idea who she really is and how she cheats and lies! "Elizabeth Warren’s Lies Catching Up With Her"

"Elizabeth Warren, Democrat candidate for Senate in Massachusetts, can’t shake free of unflattering revelations from her past. First to be exposed was her unverified claim to be a Cherokee, which upset actual Cherokees and raised ethical questions. Then came accusations from fellow academics that Warren had fudged data for a book, followed by the discovery that the former mortgage fraud czarina had herself made a tidy profit flipping foreclosed homes. Now comes the shocking news that, not only did Warren represent a string of big businesses in cases against workers, she seems to have been practicing law for over a decade without a license."

Elizabeth Warren rides Native Americans like a rented mule...

 

 

"When The Boston Herald discovered that Harvard Law School in 1996 was promoting Warren as Native American, Warren pleaded ignorance, and denied ever identifying herself as Native American in any professional capacity."

"When law professor David Bernstein caught "Sitting Bull" lying through the AALS annual directories, Warren then insisted she listed herself as a Native American only in order to meet other Native Americans."

By Zac Bissonnette Jan 13, 2014 9:00 AM ET



Senator Elizabeth Warren is drawing praise from progressives for her legislation that would bar companies from requiring prospective hires to submit to a credit check as a condition of employment. “This is about basic fairness -- let people compete on the merits, not on whether they already have enough money to pay all their bills,” said Warren, a Massachusetts Democrat. “A bad credit rating is far more often the result of unexpected medical costs, unemployment, economic downturns or other bad breaks than it is a reflection on an individual’s character or abilities.” A few things: First, the credit reports employers see don’t even include the score -- or “rating,” as Warren put it. Rather, they show the credit report itself. This isn’t a minor distinction: While a low credit score could reflect any number of causes (from medical bills to missed payments on a boat loan), the credit report includes comprehensive information on the applicant’s credit history. If the only delinquent accounts are medical bills, employers will see that; they will also see if the source of turmoil is boat loans, timeshares and a Neiman Marcus store card. The fact sheet for Warren’s Equal Employment for All Act explains that “There is no evidence to suggest that credit is an indicator of one’s work ability”; in subsequent interviews she amended “no evidence” to “little or no evidence.” That’s more accurate, but it’s far from a settled matter. There is abundant research suggesting that financial stress has a negative impact on job performance. A 2011 PricewaterhouseCoopers survey found that 29 percent of U.S. workers report that personal-finance issues have been a distraction at work, and 48 percent said that they had handled personal-finance matters during work hours. So while Warren is right that there isn’t definitive proof that a poor credit history predicts poor job performance, employers are hardly irrational for looking at it. Tracy Coenen, a forensic accountant and the author of “Essentials of Corporate Fraud,” says that examining the financial situation of a prospective employee is one of the top tools companies have for preventing embezzlement. “Financial difficulties are correlated with the propensity to commit fraud,” she says. “If you’re hiring for a position where someone will have access to money, you want to know whether they’re having financial difficulties.” Academic research on this matter is mixed. (A 2008 study found a correlation between financial history and workplace theft; a 2011 study found no such correlation.) It would be fair to say that the rationale for employers wanting to look at credit reports is debatable and employers seem to agree. Only 47 percent say they check credit; perhaps the other 53 percent can build a competitive advantage hiring all the great workers who are passed over for other jobs because of bad credit. Some employers ask prospective hires about any number of things that are of debatable relevance. Some employers like to hire former athletes; there is no conclusive evidence that they are the best workers (Lenny Dykstra and Curt Schilling, say hello), and it could be argued that such a hiring bias is unfair to those who aren’t athletically inclined or whose parents, because of their religious beliefs, banned their children from playing. Should the U.S. government bar employers from asking candidates if they played sports in high school? There is also mixed research on whether graduates of elite colleges make particularly great employees. (One researcher argues that World of Warcraft players make better employees than Harvard grads.) And a 2012 analysis of Harvard undergraduates found that 45.6 percent came from families with household incomes above $200,000 -- putting them in the top 3.8 percent of American households. Is an elite education too correlated with class (and, by extension, race and ethnicity)? Should we bar employers from asking candidates where they went to college? Hiring managers make decisions based on incomplete and imperfect information all the time; credit reports have no more potential to unjustly weed out potentially good employees than dozens of other things employers can ask about. There’s also some brazen hypocrisy in the exemption Warren’s bill includes: The federal government and its contractors will still be able to require credit checks when hiring for positions that require a security clearance. This is curious given that Warren is so insistent that employers are irrational for wanting to look at credit reports. So Warren apparently believes that everyone except the government should have to blindly hire people with a track record of financial trouble. Her disdain for the private sector and deference to government buttress the worst cliches about liberals. Finally, remember that nothing in Warren’s bill proposes to create jobs. All that it will do is make it harder for workers with a history of financial responsibility to pair up with employers who value that. We should leave it to the marketplace to decide how much credit history matters when it comes to hiring. Ten states have already passed laws restricting the use of credit reports in hiring. That strikes me as an unreasonable intrusion into the relationship between employers and job applicants. We certainly don’t need the federal government to step in and make it the law for the other states that don’t want such restrictions.
