Sen. Elizabeth Warren: It’s ‘Dangerous’ to Want 'Big Government' to Disappear

Liberal praised by media as fighter for the middle class targets corporations, banks, conservatives and billionaires.

“Politics so often felt dirty to me – all the lobbyists and the cozy dealings and the special favors for those who could buy access. But as I stood in the lobby outside Ted Kennedy’s office, I felt as if I’d been washed clean,” media favorite Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., said in her book.

That quote sums up the message of Warren’s new book “A Fighting Chance.”

Published by Metropolitan Books, Warren’s autobiography “A Fighting Chance” was released on April 22. In it, she tells of her struggles as a child and young adult – and attacks conservatives, conservative media and anyone wealthy along the way. It also documents her planning political moves with the AFL-CIO, Ted Kennedy, Barney Frank and a Who’s Who of the left…

…In “A Fighting Chance,” Warren used tried and true liberal talking points, including mentioning Occupy Wall Street sympathetically and using anecdotes of individual people who had fallen onto hard times, instead of facts and figures, to argue for policy changes.

To Warren, as well as many other liberals, there is no solution without the help of big government. “We can’t bury our heads in the sand and pretend that if ‘big government disappears, so will societies toughest problems,” she argued. “That’s just magical thinking – and it’s also dangerous thinking.” She also warned against “trying to starve the government or drown it in a bathtub.”

This isn’t surprising when you back up on the same page and read just how much she thinks people owe the government. After listing a number of public services (police, firefighters, mass transit, school), Warren quipped that “the market didn’t build those things: Americans built them. Working through our government, we built them together.”

No Warren book would be complete without a hat tip President Obama’s mantra of “you didn’t build that!” …

While U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren sleeps in her $5 million mansion in Cambridge, and got paid $350,000 to teach just one class at Harvard, she had the audacity to say in an interview with Jon Stewart this week that “the system is rigged to benefit the rich.”

Yes, Sen. Warren, that would be you. Under a free-market, capitalist system, you became a U.S. senator and multimillionaire whose own net worth hovers around $14.5 million, according to personal financial disclosure reports filed in 2011.

Newsflash for Warren: With that kind of cash, you are a one-percenter! That very demographic you vilified and campaigned against.

Yet liberal hypocrites, like Warren and countless fellow phonies in Hollywood, want to denigrate a capitalist system — and make America a socialist country after they personally benefited from a free-market system…



Update:  GOP Chair Challenges Phony Indian Elizabeth Warren to Release Her Employment Records  (video)

…Given that Warren has refused to release any documents pertaining to her application and interview process, the Republican National Committee is calling on her to come clean and release her full records from Harvard.
“With Elizabeth Warren challenging Hillary Clinton for the liberal mantle of the Democrat Party, we’re calling on Warren to release her full employment records from Harvard University,” said Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus.  “For two full years, Warren’s stonewalling of the media has left more questions than answers, and the only way to put this issue to rest once and for all is by finally releasing her personnel records.  Americans deserve to know if Warren claimed that she was 1/32nd Cherokee Indian in order to gain minority status so she could get a teaching position at Harvard University.”…
