  • OPINION: 17 Million Reasons to Raise the Minimum Wage

    03/25/2014 3:15:31 PM PDT · by Oldeconomybuyer · 69 replies
    ABC News ^ | March 25, 2014 | By Sen. Elizabeth Warren
    I have 17 million reasons for wanting to increase the minimum wage. Yes, 17 million—the number of children whose lives would be a little more secure if their moms and dads earned at least $10.10 an hour. When I was in junior high, my daddy had a heart attack. He was home for a while, the medical bills piled up, and we lost our family station wagon. So my mother did what she had to do: She went to work answering the phones at Sears. The job paid only minimum wage, but it was enough to make sure we could...

    When Elizabeth Warren announced her Senate candidacy in September 2011, President Obama had just signed into law the Budget Control Act, which raised the debt ceiling but also made concessions to Republicans that would eventually lead to $1 trillion in sequestration cuts. Deficit control was a top priority for both parties, and something that Obama pledged to continue to pursue in a rare address to a joint session of Congress that month on his jobs plan. But the speech Obama gave last week to a similar joint session of Congress felt very different. His 2014 State of the Union address...

    Warren Mayor Jim Fouts squirmed, acting uncomfortable, when he answered questions from WXYZ-TV's Jim Kiertzner about a video that is circulating online that appears to show Fouts walking in Chicago, holding hands with his executive assistant, Amanda Mika. The pair also appears to show the pair checking into the Drake Hotel, dining and visiting an Apple store. Fouts is 71. Mika is reportedly 25. The six-minute video, which carries a November 2012 time stamp, is posted to YouTube by someone with the screen name Warren DeepThroat, and suggests the mayor’s assistant received a pay raise at a time when health-care...

    Just hours before her swearing in as Rochester’s first woman mayor, Lovely Warren released a statement regarding the criminal history of her husband, Timothy Granison, when he was a teenager. Warren said her statement came in response to a question posed today by a reporter about her husband’s past. She said in 1997, when Granison was 17 years old, he was “was involved in a situation instigated by other youth that resulted in an encounter with the criminal justice system.” “Because of his age and the nature of the alleged offense, he was adjudicated a youthful offender,” Warren said. “The...

He had sailed through three rounds of interviews and hit it off with the doctors at the diagnostic center in Annandale, Va., where he had applied to be a driver for $11 an hour. Shuttling patients to appointments was a world away from his 20 years as a software engineer, but it was the best that Ronan could find after being laid off in 2011.

In a mutually respectful dialog, the two differed on many issues, most notably same-sex marriage. Warren: Tolerance, Piers, used to mean we treat each other with mutual respect, even if you...

Chris Christie, Kentucky U.S. Sen. Rand Paul or Texas U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz — by anywhere from 13 to 23 points.

Chris Whalen has an interesting blog at Zero Hedge entitled: “Are Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac Really Profitable?

This process would extinguish the supposed claims by “investors” like John Paulson and move the assets of the GSEs into private hands as quickly...

One of the purposes of the originial Glass-Steagall Act of 1933 was to separate commercial and investment banking. “The four biggest banks are now 30% larger than they were just five years ago, and they have continued to engage in dangerous, high-risk practices that could once again put our economy at risk,” according to Senator Warren.

But that’s becoming more difficult as the GOP appears to be laying the groundwork for tying Clinton to Benghazi and making sure it stays front and center in the next campaign.

True, robosigning foreclosures is sloppy, but there were apparently no economic harm to borrowers (that is, 100% of borrowers defaulted on their loans and the banks/servicers were trying to claim the house to mitigate losses). Yet the Attorneys’ General settlement went ahead despite no economic harm to borrowers. The settlement provides as much as $25...

    Warren asks for help to retire debtBy Alexandra Jaffe - 12/05/12 03:10 PM ET Sen.-elect Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), who defeated Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.) in one of the most closely-watched and expensive races in the nation, has asked for help to retire her campaign debt. Warren broke Massachusetts fundraising records with her $42 million haul, but she said in an email to supporters that she incurred some debt because of an "embarrassment of riches," in the form of the unexpected levels of support she says she received. "When my campaign team planned our final budget, we knew our Get Out...

    REPORT: Elizabeth Warren Will Get A Seat On The Senate Banking Committee Linette LopezDecember 4, 2012 Huffington Post is reporting that Elizabeth Warren now has a seat on the Senate Banking Committee. The freshman Senator-elect and former Harvard professor is known for being an outspoken critic of Wall Street. After being passed over for the top spot at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, an agency she helped to form, she won a nail-biter Massachusetts Senate contest against Scott Brown. There has been a ton of speculation about which committee Warren would sit on. As a freshman, her picks take a...

    A Michigan man has filed a federal lawsuit claiming his constitutional rights were violated when he was ordered to remove a Nativity scene from the median of a public road — a creche that his family has displayed at the location for 63 years. John Satawa, of Warren, Mich., filed the lawsuit in U.S. District Court on Friday in an attempt to be allowed to put back the 8- by 8-foot nativity scene his late father built in 1945. After receiving a complaint by the Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation last December, the Road Commission of Macomb County told Satawa...

    ANN ARBOR, MI — After four years of litigation by the Thomas More Law Center, John Satawa will once again be able to erect a Nativity display on a public median in Warren, Michigan—a tradition that his family and neighbors have been observing every Christmas since 1945. Richard Thompson, President and Chief Counsel of the Law Center, commented: “Every December, militant secularists declare war on Christmas celebrations. This is one battle they lost. And we are extremely pleased that Mr. Satawa and his neighbors will be able to resume their wonderful tradition just in time for this Christmas.” The Nativity...

    (CNSNews.com) – The Obama administration named Holly Petraeus--wife of retired Gen. David Patraeus, who resigned last week as CIA director after revealing he had had an extramarital affair--to a $187,605-per-yer job in the newly formed Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). The CFPB, created by the Dodd-Frank law, was placed by that law under the umbrella of the Federal Reserve. The funding of the CFBP, which comes from the Federal Reserve, is not subject to congressional oversight. Mrs. Petraeus became a member of the CFPB Implementation Team on Jan. 12, 2011. She is now the assistant director for the Office of...

    A chilly day in February came to a boil without warning. A frenetic CNBC reporter, Rick Santelli, took the floor at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange in 2009 to vent his rage against the U.S. government’s foreclosure-relief plan. “The government is rewarding bad behaviour,” he ranted to cheering traders. “Subsidized losers” didn’t deserve to have mortgages. The people who needed support were ones who “carry the water instead of drink the water.” Then, to louder cheers, “I’m going to have a Chicago Tea Party in July, all you capitalists that want to show up at Lake Michigan, I’m going to start...

    The bruising Massachusetts Senate battle between Republican Scott Brown and Democrat Elizabeth Warren is deadlocked just hours before Election Day, with both the candidates and the voters suffering from a barrage of attack ads, a new UMass Lowell/Boston Herald poll reveals. The poll shows Brown holding a 49-48 percent advantage over Warren among likely voters, dispelling earlier polls and Democratic claims of a small Warren lead. The one-point lead is well within the poll’s 4.1 percent margin of error.

    We’ve been talking about the enthusiasm problem that the Democrats are facing. While Romney/Ryan events turn away thousands, Democratic events are smaller, and shrinking by the day. The latest example comes from the People’s Republic of Massachusetts, where Elizabeth Warren held a rally, and no one seemed to show up.

    I’m now beginning to think that the Boston Globe poll released on Monday was probably an outlier: A new poll released today shows Elizabeth Warren leading Senator Scott Brown by 7 percentage points, one of the Democratic challenger’s largest leads in any poll taken in recent months. The poll, by Suffolk University/News 7, was released a day after a Boston Globe poll showed a much tighter race, with Brown leading by 2 percentage points. The Globe poll showed an exact tie when including responses from voters who did not express an initial preference but said they were leaning in one...
