Elizabeth Warren’s Keynote Speech at Netroots Nation

Truth Out has the video and a transcript of Elizabeth Warren’s Keynote Speech at Netroots Nation.


I have heard suggestions that Elizabeth Warren should talk more about exactly what is wrong with her opponent’s voting record. How about the following example from this speech:

When some of us were working to rein in Wall Street, the Republicans were fighting regulation tooth and nail. Scott Brown personally held the reforms hostage as he negotiated to weaken the rules and to give the big banks a $19 billion break. Scott Brown and his Republican buddies voted against funding for summer jobs, and voted twice to let the interest rate on student loans double. Just this week, Scott Brown and his Republican buddies voted for the second time against equal pay for equal work. And just a couple of months ago, he sponsored a law to let employers block access to birth control and routine cancer screenings from health insurance.
