Last week, Senator Elizabeth Warren participated in a conference hosted by tech website Re/Code, where she was asked a policy question about infrastructure spending. What followed was an incredibly powerful response that touched upon the Massachusetts senator’s signature issues—student loans, misplaced Washington interests, and the systematic problems hurting middle class Americans.
“The only way we get change is when enough people in this country say, ‘I’m mad as hell and I’m fed up and I’m not going to do this anymore,'” Warren said. “‘You are not going to represent me in Washington, DC, if you are not willing to pass a meaningful infrastructure bill. If you are not willing to refinance student loan interest rates and stop dragging in billions of dollars in profits off the backs of kids who otherwise can’t afford to go to college. If you don’t say you’re going to fund the NIH and the NISF, because that is our future.’ We have to make these issues salient and not just wonky.”
The video is now officially Warren’s most watched video, according to her digital director. Watch below:
