Warren Rolls Out Plan She Calls 'Most Sweeping Set of Anti-Corruption Reforms Since Watergate'

Tin Lizzie: Snake oil sales lady. Check her record before you swallow the hype of this pretender. Her role is to cancel out Bernie and, unfortunately, thanks to the corporate media, it seems to be working. (Maybe even THIS media?)

Nothing new here, they all (members of Congress/policymakers) know this, they simply do not want to change it.

So, Liz’s plan is to get a bunch of corrupt politicians and their corrupt pals to agree to give up their lucrative corruption? Good luck on that.

As I warned weeks ago, whether or not Liz is intending to split the progressive vote between herself & Bernie, that’s the role the DNC and their subsidiary, the MSM, are forcing her to play.  If Liz and Bernie each get roughly 35% of the primary votes – deadlocking the Convention – and if Biden has even 30% support, then Biden plus the stupor-delegates is enough for the DNC to hand Windsock Joe the nomin­ation . . .

Right On!!   I agree with most of her suggestions, but suggestions is all they are.  The President doesn’t make the laws, the Congress does — and even if by some miracle the DamnocRats hold on to the House AND take the Senate there’s no way President Liz can overcome opposition by the Powers-that-Be to implement ANY of these ideas without them being so watered-down as to be meaningless.

Read with bated breath until the next-to-last paragraph, where I was relieved to find mention of Citizens United. Until that’s fixed, UncleFester’s cautionary “I agree with most of her suggestions, but suggestions is all they are” is sadly applicable.

Good luck with this plan. There is no way you are going to get Congress to take away the money train. Warren’s plan while correct in pointing out the massive corruption of the political class, will never come to pass. They all leave office to multimillion dollar lobbying gigs.
Pelosi and Shumer won’t even bring up Trumps corruption and they certainly won’t impeach him for stuff they are doing themselves.

She OWEs the 3rd Way crowd and others on Wall Street. So how progressive would she really be ?

I’d like to see a candidate take up JFK’s call to “Shatter the CIA into a thousand pieces and scatter it to the winds”.

“But quite frankly there is an outside source which we refer to as the ‘deep state’ or the ‘shadow government’. There is a lot of influence by people which are actually more powerful than our government itself, our president,”. "— [Ron Paul]

She wants to put power back in the hands of the people.
Problem is, the SCOUS said that corporations are people too.

Welcome to Obama 2.0 (or 3.0 or 4.0 or …). Warren does not have a plan to implement any of her proposals and as long as she intends for Congress to enact her legislation without real outside pressure it will be the same as it ever was - nothing will change. Disinterested representatives bowing to the same moneyed external forces that will fund her campaign against Trump and in no way, shape or form will Warren do anything that will disrupt the money flow that put her into office despite all her nifty keen ideas. Obama anyone? Her role is, as many have said here, to throw the convention to the super delegates.

And if any candidate did, they would be silenced one way or another just like JFK and RFK were. Although, I suspect the CIA has quieter, more subtle ways of ‘silencing’ a public figure today. Black budget, secret labs and 55 years of technological advances you know.

Yeah folks, Warren is most likely a DNC operative tasked with taking down Bernie. Her foreign policy is terrible. She recently said that she was worried that climate change would harm our military readiness! I really wish progressives would stop splitting the progressive vote between Bernie and Warren. There is no comparison when you look at their records. Warren is stealing Bernie’s rhetoric, but will not follow through with any of it if elected.

And to our government, actual people are considered second class citizens next to corporations.

Just as bad is the fact that this would not get the extra votes she wants because they would have to come from some of those that previously voted for trump.
Yeah, this would be a long time policy taking back a little at a time.

The major issue that Liz seems to have overlooked is enforcing an independent way of appointing the judiciary free of party politics. Every judge appointed on the basis of a party’s nomination has to be biased and that automatically destroys the supposed “impartiality” of the judicial system. Trump’s and the GOP’s current actions will have long term damage to the proper and honest application of the laws.

So Warren has proposed a wealth tax on those about 50 million-----everyone counters can’t do that----she counters it is already happening when people pay property tax. Wake up!..….Warren proposes boosting ss payments $200. a month----nope that will never happen…….and Warren comes out with a plan on HER CENTRAL ISSUE…corruption…nope can’t do that,…by putting these plans out she is SETTING GOALS for her administration if she is elected. Joe Biden is TOAST----are you people paying attention…this could very well be a race between Bernie and Warren if the DNC can’t find another “moderate”-----

Nothing will change the corruption until the people wake up and realize the media is the propaganda arm of the corruption. People need to SHAME the media into allowing real debates on a variety of crucial subject which the media hides. The people who control the media know full well they can never allow real debates on subjects like the Kennedy/MLK assasinations, the USS Liberty, Israel/USA relations in general, false flags leading to wars, 9/11 physics and motives, etc. They will fight tooth and nail to prevent any fair debate so we people need to understand this is their weakness and we need to shame them, challenge them into hosting televised, public debates.

Obama packed his entire economic team with Wall Street bankers and their henchmen (Hillary Clinton) who in turn tapped Warren to oversee that the TARP funding got to the Too-Big-To-Fail (TBTF) banks without strings attached and later centralize financial oversight under a new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau that reports to the private Federal Reserve, owned by the same TBTF banks who caused the crisis.
