His constituents including myself, haven’t been able to ask him anything as he doesn’t do town halls or meet with us unless it’s a fund raiser that would cost a pretty penny!
He votes on the side of Banks & Wall St as per Forbes calling him “Wall St.Favorite Congressman”
Elizabeth Warren has the credibility & the knowledge to reign in the runaway risk takers. Warren scares the hell out of the right & the Koch’s and their ilk. She shouldn’t scare the commentors here unless they’re in the 1%.

Why does it matter that it shares a title with a 1935 poem by a communist? Its obvious that the title and the message were meant to stand on their own, not be a tribute to Langston Hughes.

Its actually better that Brown used the title “let America be America” in a way that’s not sarcastic and contemptuous of the ideas that America stands on: free enterprise. I don’t know if Elizabeth Warren is likewise a communist, but this ad makes clear her disdain for business.
