    Massachusetts Senate race tests feelings about Wall Street

    Democrat Elizabeth Warren keeps targeting Wall Street's money-driven culture as she runs against Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.), a big recipient of campaign contributions from the financial industry.

    By Jim Puzzanghera, Los Angeles Times

    December 26, 2011
    Reporting from Easton, Mass. The race is for a U.S. Senate seat in Massachusetts, but it's really a referendum on Wall Street.

    On one side is Democrat Elizabeth Warren, the architect of the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and an inspiration for the Occupy Wall Street movement.

    On the other: incumbent Republican Scott Brown, one of the biggest recipients of campaign contributions from the financial industry.

    Brown is campaigning on traditional Republican themes of smaller government and lower taxes. But Warren is taking a more unusual tack aligning herself squarely with the Occupy protesters.

    perception.

    "There is nobody in this country who got rich on his own. Nobody. You built a factory
    out there — good for you! But I want to be clear. You moved your goods to market on
    the roads the rest of us paid for. You hired workers the rest of us paid to educate. You
    were safe in your factory because of police forces and fire forces that the rest of us paid for."
    -- U.S. Sen. candidate Elizabeth Warren, running in Massachusetts

    I bet, just another typical rabid Leftist feminazi. The fewer Leftists we have in this country, the better off we'll be.

    The election of Scott Brown to Teddy Kennedy's seat was our (Massachusetts) little joke on the GOP. (we figured they would totally misread the joke & use it as an excuse to lurch even further to the far right......Thank god they're such idiots!)
    That two year joke may well cost them the 2012 elections.

    Again, your vision of a permanent Demotwat rule here in the US would be a disaster.
