Warren: ‘Give people a reason to show up and vote’
In her stump speech, Warren said that the American government is working well for drug companies but not people who can't afford to fill their prescriptions; for big oil companies but not communities struggling with the threats posed by climate change and sea level rise.
"Donald Trump wants to divide people, turn them against each other as a way to increase his power, because so long as people are divided and attacking each other they won't notice that a corrupt government and corrupt leader are sucking more and more of the value out of this country," she said. "I see 2020 as a chance to put all that aside. ... We're going to make this government work not just for a thin slice at the top, but for everyone. If you think about it, that really is the heart of my campaign."
"When we talk about our values, the things that matter most to us, we all four agree. We don't want anybody to go bankrupt over a medical problem. We want all of our kids to get a good education and not be crushed by student debt. After a lifetime of hard work, we want everyone to be able to retire with dignity. There may be differences in how we get there but when we remind ourselves of our basic values, I think we have a lot more in common than people like Donald Trump want to admit."
