Liz Warren Is Confused: Why Do They Think I’m A Socialist?
Posted By Robby Soave On 11:29 PM 05/11/2014 In | No Comments

Just days after proposing a massive bailout of indebted students that would subsidize their college loans and forgive some of their financial obligations, far-left Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts said she has no idea why people think she is a socialist.

Her bill, the Bank on Students Emergency Loan Refinancing Act, would lower the amount of money that students are obligated to repay to the federal government. If enacted, the bill would deprive the federal government of billions of dollars in interest payments owed to its shareholders: the American taxpayers.

It is Warren’s belief that students — who voluntarily signed up for the loans and agreed to pay them back at certain interest rates — should be let off the hook.

Yet on CBS’s “Face the Nation” on Sunday, Warren wondered why people think she is a socialist. When Bob Scheiffer pointed out that Warren’s critics consider her a socialist, she replied:

Quote
I just don’t know where they get that. You know, look at the issues. I mean really, let’s take a look at minimum wage — I just believe nobody should work full time and live in poverty. And you know what? Most of America agrees. Student loans: I don’t think the U.S. government should be making tens of billions of dollars in profits off the backs of our students, which is what the current student loan system is doing. And I think most Americans agree with me on that.


t is unclear whether most Americans believe the government should take a huge hit so that students can renege on deals they made to attend universities that they wouldn’t have been able to afford without the assistance of taxpayer funding.

Twenty-three Democratic senators have signed onto Warren’s plan to do just that, however.

In an earlier interview with The Daily Caller News Foundation, the American Enterprise Institute’s Alex Pollock derided the bill as an effort to punish taxpayers for college students’ bad choices.

“It’s an attempt to increase taxpayer subsidies for student loans by undercharging on the interest rates,” he said.

Warren’s student loan refinancing legislation is the cornerstone of her effort to “level the playing field,” by taking power away from the wealthy, she said in her CBS interview.

She does not identify as a socialist, however.

Being called a socialist isn't that bad, but if one has designs on higher office, it's not ideal. Warren is the go to woman if Hillary strokes out. After all, we must have a woman in 2016, it's the only qualification that matters.

It's really convenient for Democrats, they can say anything, deny anything, and the msm will transcribe it as if it were fact.

Well just check out CPUSA and its associate sites to find numerous articles of praise for Warren.  Example:

Quote
An African American president was reelected to the Presidency, the Democrats unexpectedly strengthened their hand in the Senate and House, new progressive voices, like Elizabeth Warren, are coming to Washington, and victories, including for marriage equality, occurred at the state level.

I'm going to out on a limb here and suggest that if the Communist Party USA and People's World like Pocahontas, it isn't due to her "capitalist" leanings.
It's the Supreme Court nominations!

From the article:
[[ far-left Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts said she has no idea why people think she is a socialist... ]]

That's because true communists get irritated when you insult them by calling them mere socialists...
