Warren at DNC: The System is Rigged Against the Middle Class

Elizabeth Warren, the Democratic nominee for the U.S. Senate from Massachusetts, spoke at the Democratic National Convention on Wednesday night. What did you think of her speech?

The system is rigged against middle class families, and unchecked corporate greed will take us all down, according to Massachusetts U.S. Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren who spoke at the Democratic National Convention on Wednesday night. 

"Each generation built something solid so that the next generation could build something better," she said. "But not for many years. Talk to the construction worker from Malden who went nine months without a job... Talk to the student in Worcester who worked hard to finish his degree and now he's drowning in debt...The system is rigged against them."

Warren, who took the stage just prior to former president Bill Clinton, said Romney's plan to lower the richest American's taxes would send the economy spiraling backwards. She called several times for Americans to band together to work for the next generation's benefit. 

Did you watch Warren's speech? Do you think she did enough to address the concerns Americans have about jobs and the economy today? Do you believe the playing field in America is rigged?  Either way, we'd like to hear from Woonsocket residents. Share your thoughts in the comments.

There are some very interesting articles on this website which could spark some very enthusiastic debate and opinons. Apparently none of you have anything to really contribute to this website because all you do is attack each other. It really makes it difficult for any intelligent person who may want to express an intelligent opinion to join in. This is typical of the American public. No substance but an abundance of ignorance.
