Elizabeth Warren – Drain The Swamp

Great HuffPost article on how Elizabeth Warren is the *real* swamp-drainer. Find it here.

The discussion at the Center for American Progress’ “Ideas Conference” on Tuesday stuck mostly to the conventional Democratic script. But not Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.)

I love that she isn’t a cookie cutter Democrat; voters want an independent thinker.

Warren’s speech stood out, both for its unabashed populism and for its bold proposals for rooting out the influence of money in politics and breaking up the business monopolies.

In her scathing remarks, Warren portrayed a Washington compromised by the largesse of big corporations and the ultra-rich long before Trump came to power.

Another gem:

“It is time to do what Teddy Roosevelt did: pick up the antitrust stick again. The stick has collected some dust, but the laws are still on the books,” Warren said.

Boom!

Something the Bernie fans can sink their teeth into.

If the banks are a predator of the American worker and if they can’t play by the rules; BREAK. THEM. UP.

“In every corner of our economy, competition is increasingly choked off,” she said. “Airlines, banking, health care, pharma, agriculture, telecom, tech — in industry after industry, a handful of giant corporations control more and more and compete less and less.”

Very true. Free markets need to be free in order to function. Corporate-government tyranny is fascism.
