Elizabeth Warren Goes After Christie’s RNC Speech In Editorial

Elizabeth Warren, the Democratic U.S. Senate candidate in Massachusetts, offered a rebuttal to New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s keynote address at the Republican National Convention in an editorial published Wednesday on Daily Kos.

Last night, Chris Christie and the Republicans told the American people that we’re to blame for our broken economy. He told families to tighten their belts. He told seniors to live on less. He told teachers to stop fighting for fair pay.

He never, ever mentioned how much more the richest have taken, and he had no mention that those who broke our economy still haven’t been held accountable.

The Republicans believe in an America that is rigged for the big guys – giant corporations that can hire an army of lobbyists, ship jobs overseas, and take their profits to the Cayman Islands.
