The political journey of Elizabeth Warren



When she was a young law professor, Elizabeth Warren set out to discover why people go bankrupt. She traveled to federal courtrooms across the country and listened to the stories of people in financial distress. Many were middle class, she found, but had fallen on hard times after becoming sick, losing their jobs or getting divorced. The realization that so many Americans were one bad break away from bankruptcy was the beginning of a four-decade career that has taken Warren from the lecture halls of Harvard to the halls of Congress. As a consumer advocate, a senator from Massachusetts, and now a Democratic presidential candidate, Warren has always preached a message of economic fairness and championed regulations on credit card companies and big banks. “I got a plan” has become a core message of her presidential campaign, but critics say her plans are unrealistic in an era of political gridlock.

Why do I get the feeling this story only covers 1/1024 of the truth?

She stands up and battles for working individuals. Perhaps you are off and need a boss for the rich like Trump, however the vast majority of us can't manage the cost of that. Expecting you bolster Trump I likewise think that its absurd you are insulted by Warren being phony, when this nation has never observed a greater fake than Trump.

I fully support Elizabeth Warren…and suggest we vote out the Republicans in Congress so she can put her policies into action.

Not even a mention of Warren's intention to take CORPORATE money in the general election making her beholden to corporate donors. I guess this satisfies your anti Sanders quota for the day? Guess we know who WP is pushing because we don't expect journalistic integrity anymore. Just look at the MANUFACTURED smear against Sanders' claim of 500,000 of medical bankruptcies in the U.S. that you yourself cited, and then double downed trying to discredit it by saying it wasn't peer reviewed when it was. How self serving and repulsive.

We don't like her in Mass. She's done nothing to help our state! If she’d get her hand out of foreign affairs and promote Mass interest in Congress then I would change my tune!

When Warren is such a nice supportive profile from the Washington Post while they constantly try to undercut and smear Bernie Sanders… you can be sure that it's another glowing recommendation for Bernie. Mostly because the Washington Post refuses to report honestly about Bernie, but does all it can to fawn over any conender who opposes him. That dishonesty alone is the crux of how it's a glowing endoresment in Bernie's favor. WaPo and many other corporations and elites have chosen to back Warren over Bernie and now do everything to flood you with great pieces about her as well… Read more »

Based on her voting record, Warren is a war hawk. The only reason to prefer Warren over Bernie is her gender.
