Virtual Debates: 2020 Presidential Candidate

Elizabeth Warren

It's a great honor to be here. Never in a million years did I think I would stand on a stage like this. I was born and raised in Oklahoma. I have three older brothers. They all joined the military. I had a dream growing up and my dream was to be a public school teacher. By the time I graduated from high school my family... my family didn't have the money for a college application, much less a chance for me to go to college. But I got my chance. It was a $50 per semester commuter college. That was a little slice of government that created some opportunity for a girl, and it opened my life. I am this fight because I believe we can make our government, we can make our economy, we can make our country work – not just for those at the top – we can make it work for everyone. And I promise you this: I will fight for you as hard as I fight for my own family.

Economic Stimulus

Let's start with a wealth tax - 2% on the top .01% - the biggest fortunes in this country. We ask them to pitch in two cents to pay for universal childcare for kids under 5, universal pre-k for ever 3-4 year old, raise the wages of pre-school teachers and child care workers, provide universal free technical training and 2-4 year college for every kid who wants to go, and cancel student loan debt for 95% of the people who have it.

Health Care

We get rid of the Hyde amendment, and we put some real teeth into Title X and get rid of the gag rule. And we make sure Planned Parenthood stays fully funded. We also defend basic healthcare for everyone. And for me that means we have medicare for all for all of our people - access for everyone.Source: We Decide Forum (June 2019)
