Elizabeth Warren: I Grew Up Middle Class

Massachusetts Senate hopeful Elizabeth Warren is out with the second advertisement of her campaign, in which she recalls growing up “in a family hanging by our fingertips to a place in the middle class. But back then, America invested in kids like me. We had lots of opportunities.” Now, she argues, “Washington lets big corporations like GE pay nothing—zero—in taxes, while kids are left drowning in debt to get an education.” The statewide-ad aims highlight Warren’s bottom-up rise to success.
