Elizabeth Warren Outlines What It Will Take for a Candidate to Get Her Endorsement

At this point, the endorsement of Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren may prove pivotal during the Democrat primary. If it turns out that Hillary Clinton, the presumptive Democrat nominee, actually encounters the competitive race she claims to want, getting the nod of approval from Warren may be worth a lot of votes. This past Friday, Warren outlined her ideal candidate for the presidency. The media, ever eager to see Warren jump into the presidential race, was quick to point out that the ideal candidate she outlined seems strikingly similar to herself.

Warren stated that she will throw her support behind the candidate that makes the best case for how they would defend the American middle class. Warren, a populist by nature, was quick to point out that the nation’s capital pays far too much heed to special interest groups and lobbyists. Sam Tabar sees that this doesn’t leave the government paying much attention to the needs of the middle class. Among the key issues she wants to see addressed is a plan to lower interest rates on student loans. She also wants to see entitlement reform of the Social Security system so that it becomes solvent for future generations. Currently, the nation’s pension system has a 10 trillion dollar unfunded liability. While Warren says she is open to supporting any candidate, she was quick to disqualify both GOP candidates Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz. She says their voting record proves they do not seek to protect the middle class.
