    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - White House hopeful Elizabeth Warren is taking heat from her Democratic rivals for her demurrals when asked whether her Medicare for All healthcare plan would require raising taxes on middle-class households.

    Of all the market-moving tweets these days, one in particular from Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Elizabeth Warren is sending shivers through the oil industry. “On my first day as president, I will sign an executive order that puts a total moratorium on all new fossil fuel leases for drilling offshore and on public lands,” she tweeted on Sept. 6. “And I will ban fracking—everywhere.” Outlawing a technique that energy producers use to blast oil and gas from shale formations would require legislation and spur a torrent of opposition from companies, investors and probably even state governments. Substantial as those hurdles...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren has threatened that as president she would consider cutting off U.S. aid to Israel if the country moves against a two-state solution, but last year, she condemned President Trump for cutting off aid to intransigent Palestinians. The Democratic front-runner said regarding aid to Israel, "Right now, Netanyahu says he is going to take Israel in a direction of increasing settlements. That does not move us toward a two-state solution." She added, "It is the official policy of the United States of America to support a two-state solution, and if Israel is moving in the opposite direction, then...

    INDIANOLA, Iowa — Elizabeth Warren issued a warning to Israel if it continues building settlements in the West Bank. The Massachusetts senator was asked after a town hall in Iowa whether she was open to making U.S. aid conditional on an agreement with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to halt construction in a territory Israel won in a defensive war in 1967, which is home to about 3 million Palestinians and roughly 400,000 Jews. "Right now, Netanyahu says that he is going to take Israel in a direction of increasing settlements. That does not move us toward a two-state solution....

    Senator Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) took a hard line on Israel Saturday saying "everything is on the table" in imposing a two-state solution to the Arab-Israeli conflict. "It is the official policy of the United States of America to support a two-state solution, and if Israel is moving in the opposite direction, then everything is on the table," Warren said during a press availability with reporters Saturday. In a formulation more commonly deployed by previous presidents in threatening the use of force against America’s enemies, Warren repeated the phrase but did not clarify precisely what pressure—military or otherwise—might be brought...

    A key plank in Democratic presidential contender Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s platform is that “the economy is not working for average Americans.” In a poll conducted by Marist, more than 60% of the voters questioned said the economy is working for them. Of the subgroups surveyed, 67% of college graduates, 64% of those without a degree, 68% of whites, 61% of non-whites, 63% of generation Z, 69% of generation X, 63% of baby boomers, 69% of the greatest generation, 69% of the silent generation, 60% of those in the west, 65% of those in the east, 67% of those in...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) are demanding swift action to protect transgender migrants attempting to enter the United States. In an eight-page letter to Trump administration officials, the senators implore the administration to reverse immigration policies they consider harmful to transgender migrants and other vulnerable populations. The policies they want reversed? All of them! The populations they consider vulnerable? All of them! "We write to express alarm over reports detailing the abuse and neglect of trans gender migrants and asylum seekers at the border and in U.S. custody," the letter states. "We ask you to immediately...

    A growing number of Senate Democrats say Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) should be more explicit about how she plans to pay for her “Medicare for All” plan. They say the transparency will be rewarded, and that Warren is taking a risk by not being more open about the costs of Medicare for All. “There are pluses and minuses to Medicare for All. You have to be direct about the fact that there are certain consequences of it that will affect people differently. The more you can be transparent about it, I think it’s important,” said Sen. Ben Cardin (D-Md.), who...

    If you want to run for office, political consultants will hammer away at one point: Tell stories. People respond to stories. We've been a storytelling species since our fur-clad ancestors gathered around campfires. Don't cite statistics. No one can remember statistics. Make it human. Make it relatable. Lincoln told stories. FDR told stories. Reagan told stories. Watching the Democrats' fourth debate Tuesday night, you could see the candidates implementing this advice. They'd mention Joe in their state who said X, or Jane who called their office with Y problem. They commonly use techniques like: "The voters I speak to aren't...

    Wall Street Journal ^ | October 17, 2019 | Laurence Kotlikoff
    Economists Emmanuel Saez and Gabriel Zucman of the University of California, Berkeley are advising Elizabeth Warren’s presidential campaign and drawing generous media attention for their assertion that the U.S. tax system is flat—that the middle class and poor pay as great a share of their income in taxes as the rich. They’re wrong, and three huge mistakes underlie their analysis. The biggest mistake is to focus on gross, not net, taxes. They ignore transfer payments, like Social Security, which are disproportionately paid to the poor. In doing so, they mistake language for economics. To see the problem, consider a simple...
  • Elizabeth Warren tells voters economy not working for them – Most voters disagree

    With three polls showing her in the lead, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., may soon eclipse former Vice President Joe Biden as the front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination. That's great news for Republicans, because Warren has a problem: The central message of her campaign is that the economy is working for the very wealthy but it is not working for ordinary Americans. Unfortunately for her, ordinary Americans disagree. A Marist poll asked voters whether "the economy is working well for you personally." Nearly two-thirds of Americans said yes. This includes large majorities in almost every demographic group. Sixty-seven percent of...
  • Bernie Calls Elizabeth Warren The “C” Word

    It was the worst thing one Democrat could call another, particularly a woman, and especially a woman of color. Old white man Bernie Sanders went below the belt this week when he dropped the “C” word on Native American Elizabeth Warren. The Vermont socialist called younger squaw a “capitalist.” There was a time, believe it or not, when this would not be controversial. But that day is done. The Democratic Party has moved so far to the left they make the Chinese government seem open to new ideas. You’d never know it if you learned about politics from the legacy...

    Senator Elizabeth Warren has been hailed on social media for her veiled 'Obama' jab at former Vice President Joe Biden during the Democratic debate. Things got fiery between the two Democratic candidates towards the end of the fourth debate in Ohio on Tuesday night as the two compared achievements and traded barbs. Biden had been arguing that he was the only Democratic presidential candidate with major accomplishments as he argued that his achievements made him best prepared to take office. Asked if the ideas of Senators Bernie Sanders or Warren could defeat President Donald Trump, Biden told the debate audience...

    Three hours of Democrats Debating! Sheer joy.Off limits for discussion last night: immigration, critical trade issues, climate change. On topic: Impeach! Impeach! Impeach! Socialism, more Socialism, and most Socialism! For some reason the entire evening reminded me of the punchline of that old joke about prostitution, “Madam, we've already established that. Now we are just haggling about the price”.Tempting, isn’t it? The thought of eliminating the pimps?Except in Washington people pimp themselves out so you’ll never be rid of them. Speaking of which, everyone gasped when Anderson Cooper dared ask the unmentionable of Joe Biden: “If it's not okay for...

    Undercover journalist James O'Keefe's Project Veritas released a second round of secretly recorded video clips Tuesday documenting CNN's political bias, this time asserting the network is favoring Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts over other 2020 Democratic presidential candidates. The videos feature former CNN satellite uplink technician Cary Poarch, who says he recently agreed to wear a hidden camera "to expose the bias" at the network. (snip) Meanwhile, CNN's senior justice correspondent, Evan Perez, is captured on video saying frontrunner Joe Biden "has a problem, because his son was trading in his name."

    Senator Amy Klobuchar (D., Minn.) and Southbend, Ind. mayor Pete Buttigieg criticized Senator Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) during Tuesday evening’s debate over her refusal to admit that her Medicare for All plan would require an increase in middle class taxes. “Let me be clear on this. Costs will go up for the wealthy. They will go up for big corporations. And for middle-class families, they will go down,” Warren said when asked if her proposal would require an increase in middle class taxes. “I will not sign a bill into law that does not lower costs for middle-class families.” The...

    Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren's zinger at an LGBT town hall may have gone viral, but CNN failed to disclose that the questioner donated the federal maximum to her 2018 Massachusetts Senate campaign. CNN's Chris Cuomo introduced Morgan Cox at the Thursday town hall as "the chair of the Human Rights Campaign board of directors" who was part of "a real estate investment firm in Dallas, Texas." Cox asked Warren what she would say if "a supporter approaches you and says, ‘Senator, I'm old-fashioned and my faith teaches me that marriage is between one man and one woman.'" "Well, I'm...
