Elizabeth Warren

From Elizabeth Warren, the proper case for liberalism

"Warren argued that 'there is nobody in this country who got rich on his own,' that thriving entrepreneurs move their goods 'on the roads the rest of us paid for' and hire workers 'the rest of us paid to educate.' Police and firefighters, also paid for by 'the rest of us,' protect the factory owner’s property. As a result, our 'underlying social contract' requires this hardworking but fortunate soul to 'take a hunk' of his profits 'and pay forward for the next kid who comes along.'"
