Warren at DNC: The System is Rigged Against the Middle Class

Elizabeth Warren, the Democratic nominee for the U.S. Senate from Massachusetts, spoke at the Democratic National Convention on Wednesday night. What did you think of her speech?

The system is rigged against middle class families, and unchecked corporate greed will take us all down, .

Warren is challenging Republican U.S. Senator Scott Brown in November's election. She is unopposed on the Democratic ballot .

"Each generation built something solid so that the next generation could build something better," she said. "But not for many years. Talk to the construction worker from Malden who went nine months without a job... Talk to the student in Worcester who worked hard to finish his degree and now he's drowning in debt...The system is rigged against them."

Warren, who took the stage just prior to former president Bill Clinton, said Romney's plan to lower the richest American's taxes would send the economy spiraling backwards. She called several times for Americans to band together to work for the next generation's benefit. 

Did you watch Warren's speech? Do you think she did enough to address the concerns Americans have about jobs and the economy today? Do you believe the playing field in America is rigged? Share your thoughts in the comments.

Elizabeth Warren is spot on in saying the system is rigged against the middle class. Have the big banks that brought the economy to its knees been punished, no they have only grown more powerful because they own the politicians. Big money controls this country, look at how much income tax they pay. She speaks for the middle class in calling for change. Don B
