Harris on Warren

Elizabeth Warren
by Kamala Harris
April 20, 2017

During a Senate floor debate this year, Senator Elizabeth Warren read a letter from Martin Luther King Jr.’s widow Coretta Scott King. Minutes later, she was silenced mid­sentence by majority leader Mitch McConnell, under an obscure and rarely invoked Senate rule.

“She was warned,” Senator McConnell said. “She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.”

Yes, she did. And it was just the latest example of this plainspoken daughter of the Plains standing up for the middle class and the marginalized.

I first met Elizabeth after the 2008 housing crisis, when we battled the big banks and mortgage lenders together. I witnessed a fierce and fearless fighter, the same progressive champion who oversaw the $700 billion bank rescue and fought to create a consumer-­protection agency. Today I’m honored to serve alongside her in the Senate.

In these tough times, Elizabeth Warren persists. And America’s hardworking families are lucky that she does.

1. I love these kind of posts

 

Positive posts that show two candidates that like each other and will be able to come together once a nominee is chosen to help unite Democrats all over the country to get out and take our country back from the mad man in the WH.

Thanks for posting this.

2. They are both awesome

 

Senators who have done really productive work that has helped the people. Some senators just spend time grandstanding and renaming post offices. These two have brought in revolutionary legislation.
