Elizabeth Warren Of The Election Campaign


Massachusetts Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren of the election campaign heats up over the Internet, some commentators point out that the clip - in which Warren argues in favor of progressive policies in the economic sphere - as evidence that the New Democratic candidate could correspond Sen. Scott Brown a run for their money.

In the video (left), which was filmed at an event in Andover, Massachusetts, Warren rejects the GOP touted idea that raising taxes on the rich amounted to "class war", argued that "There is nobody in this country who have become rich on their own. Nobody."

Warren rejects the idea that you can separate from the Americans thrived.

"You have built a factory there? Good for you," he said. "But let me be clear: move your goods to market on the way to the rest of us pay, who have hired workers in the rest of us pay to educate, they were safe in their plant, as the police forces and fire than the rest of us pay. You do not have to worry about marauding bands had to take all your plant, and hire someone to guard against this by the work of the rest of us. "

He continues: "Look, you built a factory, and turned it into something horrible, or good idea God bless keep a big chunk of it, but the social part of the underlying contract is taking a piece of that salary as well as Boy Advance which is next ?..."

First of Warren in the Massachusetts Senate race marks his first political candidacy - and while the consumer advocate long loved by some liberals, he wondered if any of their lack of political experience s' turns out to be prohibitive in competition.

The Washington Monthly Steven Benigno, however, points in the video as an explanation of "why Warren has a strong base of fans who love him."

"If there are persistent concerns about Warren could be an effective speaker on the stump, I think these questions are answered," Benigno wrote. "If more Democrats were able to do in the case of the social contract underlying the most effective, our discourse would be much less stupefying."

Mitt Romney Confronts Health Care Issue


Mitt Romney (born March 12, 1947) is an American businessman and Republican Party politician, who served as the 70th Governor of Massachusetts from 2003 to 2007.

Mitt Romney made clear Tuesday he has an answer to critics who say the health care plan he enacted as governor of Massachusetts inspired the national law so fiercely opposed by Republicans.

In an interview on The View, Romney said his plan for Massachusetts – which like the national one mandates coverage – was never designed to be applied to other states.

"We addressed a problem in Massachusetts that was designed to solve problems for the people of Massachusetts," Romney during his appearance on the daytime talk show Tuesday. "But it is wrong and unconstitutional to take what is designed for one state and say we are going to apply that in every state."

"What we did will not work in Texas, will not work in California," the likely presidential candidate continued. "It is designed for the people of one state."

It's not the first time Mitt Romney has confronted the question of how he can square his fervent opposition to President Obama's health care plan when it bears striking similarities to the one he helped enact, but it is one the former presidential candidate will likely face again and again if he launches a presidential bid.

The comments come a day after top Obama aide David Axelrod needled Romney over the Massachusetts measure, saying, "We got some good ideas from him."

Meanwhile, Romney refused to say whether he had made a final decision about running for president but said his wife Ann is "full steam ahead" when it comes to the issue.
