On Monday, Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) released a video confirming that she is running for President in 2020.
“In our country, if you work hard and play by the rules, you ought to be able to take care of yourself and the people you love. That’s a fundamental promise of America. A promise that should be true for everyone,” Warren opens.
“I’ve spent my career getting to the bottom of why America’s promise works for some families, but others who work just as hard slip through the cracks into disaster. What I found is terrifying,” she continues.
“These aren’t cracks that families are falling into, they’re traps. America’s middle class is under attack.”
Warren goes on to talk about the billionaire class and corporate infiltration of American politics, the crippling of American unions, the dismantling of financial market rules meant to protect working Americans after the Great Depression, and tax cuts for the wealthy.
“But this dark path doesn’t have to be our future,” Warren ends. “We can make our democracy work for all of us. We can make our economy work for all of us.”
