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

For 47 years, since Roe-vs-Wade we have relied on the courts to protect us. But we have been on defense. It's not working. About 3/4 of the people in this country support Roe-vs-Wade. I think the laws of this country should reflect the values of the people in this country. So I say it's time to go on offense with Roe-vs-Wade. It's not enough to rely on the courts. We need to pass a law that makes Roe-vs-Wade the law of the land.Source: We Decide Forum (June 2019)
