I wrote about Elizabeth Warren’s video slamming “class warfare” a couple weeks ago. Of course, I wasn’t the only one. The video has gone totally viral. And as Elizabeth Warren takes on Republican Scott Brown for an important Massachusetts Senate seat, she is becoming increasingly well-known and popular. As even the comedic spoof below shows, she is taking on corporations and the attack on the middle class, and is doing so in a way that gets people inspired. Check this great video out:
“You built a factory out there? Good for you. But I want to be clear: 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.”
