MUST SEE: Elizabeth Warren Blasts GOP Attacks On Women, Science And The Economy

Share

Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) spoke on the floor of the Senate on Monday evening about the ridiculous demands House Republicans were making in exchange for keeping the government open.

“Republicans have decided that the single most important issue facing our nation is to change the law so that employers can deny women access to birth control coverage,” she said. “In fact, letting employers decide whether women can get birth control covered on their insurance plans is so important that the Republicans are willing to shutter the government and potentially tank the economy over whether women can get access to birth control in the year 2013 — not the year 1913 — the year 2013.”

The senior senator from Massachusetts went on to detail the process that had led to the shutdown, including the Senate’s passing a budget that replaces the automatic cuts known as the sequester, which will cost our economy 900,000 jobs.

She went on to detail why the cuts are so disastrous to research and the battle against America’s leading cause of death — heart disease.

    Tea Party Republicans should be thrown out of the govt and the country. A bunch of racist, small-minded, self delusional, egotistical wastes of human space. Traitors that serve the wealthy and keep themselves in false advertising of fighting for the “American people”. Yeah, the “American people” that would love Hitler to be reborn to get rid of all these other ethnicities that are bringing their america down. Maybe they do, all Cruz needs is a good stache, that nincompoop.

      Tea Party Republicans should NOT “..be
      thrown out of government and the county.” Instead, they should be stood
      before a wall, and shot!

    Republicans don’t like Obamacare because they don’t want insurance companies to offer preventive measures for women, yet some women still vote republican. Other than ‘Stepford Wives’ in red states… why are women still voting Republican??? We need to somehow get through to the women who continue to vote Republican despite the fact that the policies being pursued by their party are damaging and detrimental to them.

    My curiosity is why the male Senators have cowardly allowed this diminutive Woman to be the spokesperson of courage? The lone Liberal/Progressive voice daring to call out the bullies, criminally corrupt & savagely cruel Republican conservatives in Congress, on their attacks, essentially, on OUR Liberal/Progressive, Constitutional government & civic culture, while they sit, doing their typical hand-wringing thing, which had left a President isolated & a citizenry abandoned? I say forget Hillary Clinton & let us now put our efforts behind Senator Elizabeth Warren for President & Hillary Clinton for Vice President!!! W/all due respect, the former First Lady is too much of a lightning rod of hate for conservative & would be too divisive for her own party. W/Senator Warren, we have fresh, bold ideas & a NATURE for bold action to back it up! We need courageous, innovative, thoughtful Liberal/Progressives to lead the nation BACK to greatness, honor & intelligence of world leadership. It’s not her fault she possesses these qualities, but it will be our fault & our terrible loss if we don’t realize our needs & follow her lead…

    Warren is the anti – Palin. Warren has intelligence, compassion, integrity. Palin is the Blooper Queen. According to the Blooperette, God elects U.S. Presidents and other politicians, not the people. Well? Sara?, you didn’t make it. Thank you God, for Elizabeth Warren!

      Palin does not follow the Republicans Slogan – “Take Personal Responsibility” she blames her mistakes and lack of knowledge on others. You know those “Gotcha Questions – What do you like to read”.

    I like Sen. Warren and would support her for “higher office”. However, she would have to do a better job of explaining the whole “flap” about her allegedly exaggerated claim of native American heritage. I could overlook it; but it troubled me somewhat, and I’m afraid it would trouble other people if she were to run for “higher office”.

      Why, are you going to claim that since she is part Native American, she isn’t “American enough?”

        Not at all; unless something “earth-shaking” came up, I’d definitely vote for her against any current possibilities for the office.

        The “flap” was that Scott Brown and his supporters accused her of lying and saying that she was a “minority” because she was Native American, at least in part. And, I don’t think she did a good job explaining the apparent inconsistencies. It hurt her during the end of the campaign, but, obviously, she won in spite of it. I’m just concerned that it would become “the” issue during a national campaign. The GOP is very good at making “mountains out of molehills”. Then again, so are the Democrats.

        The following link from the Washington Post fact check should do a better job explaining it than I can.

          What she said is that she believed her family’s narrative
          that her great grandmother was of Native American decent. I believed my mother’s narrative that she was descendant from Irish nobility. It made having red hair and freckles more palatable to a young girl. It is part of her identity whether or not it is factual because it is part of the story her family tells about itself.

            And that was fine until she clicked the box on her college admission form. If she has the heritage, great. If not, she really needs to fix her record.

            When she checked it on the form she thought that it was true. She did not obtain any gain through it – so how do you suggest she “fix her record”? Just get over it and move on. Like her or not for what she is doing NOW.

            Funny how the radical Repubicans want to investigate the heritage of every political candidate they don’t like, looking for the smallest straw of bogus evidence that the candidate is not “really American” or “really qualified.” They aren’t saying much about their own half-Canadian, half-Cuban, half-American idol.

    WOW! Once again I will say that I’m impressed with her presentation. She has a way of logically laying out her points.

    This woman may someday (I am hoping more each day) run for president. This is one moderate Republican who would probably cross party lines to vote for her.

    The funders of the modern GOP namely the Koch bros are doing everything possible to create a work for less, no benefit culture where workers would be so desperate that would take any job, no matter how dangerous to their health. The workers would be so afraid of loosing their jobs they would never report environmental pollution even if it affected their families. If you want to see this for real, think of Nikki Halley’s SC. This is a state that outlawed unions, and is opposed to the Medicaid expansion and the ACA. they will be come the leaders in the work for less culture since they also oppose a minimum wage hike. She has also barred the state from putting any reference to sea level rise in any state document.. They will invite any industry no matter ho dirty to set up shop there since environmental enforcement is weak. In Republican talk this is called business friendly. This is what the GOP means when they talk about loosening regulations. This is the Koch model for America. This is why they funded the stupidest people in American to join their party since they can’t see the big picture and can be easily lead by slogans. Aptly name the tea party
