Elizabeth Warren won’t define the middle class

Newly sworn-in Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) campaigned on the middle class — but don’t ask her to define it.

In an interview with the FOX News affiliate in Boston on Friday, Warren refused to assign a salary range to middle class Americans, saying it’s “not a numbers issue.”

“When we strengthen education, when we make it possible for kids to go to college, then we strengthen America’s middle class, and that doesn’t mean a dollar figure,” Warren said.

“The middle class is, by definition, a group of people in a certain income level,” the reporter said. “But you’re not willing to say that they are.”

“No…no…because I actually disagree with that,” Warren said.

The reporter argued that when writing legislation, the middle class would be defined by income levels, but Warren disagreed. She said instead that there are many characteristics that define the middle class.

“That sounds a little like a dodge, Senator Warren,” the reporter said.

“No, but it’s not a dodge,” Warren responded.

Warren, who spoke at the Democratic National Convention about President Obama being a fighter for the middle class, hasn’t had the cleanest of records. During the campaign, Warren came under fire for lying about her claimed Native American heritage and possibly practicing law without a license in Massachusetts.

And with her current inability to define the middle class, it might be time for Massachusetts voters to admit they’ve been snookered by her “power to the people” campaign rhetoric.

    Folks in government appear to be getting dumber and dumberer – just when I think the electorate can’t sink any further in its opinion, they get some swarmy p.o.s. like this back into the saddle.
    Well, enjoy the ride because this coming four years are going to hurt and get a lot uglier.

    I viewed the interview and once again a moron member of the dumocrat party has been elected by – drum roll – morons. As long as morons and the ignorant are in charge, America doesn’t stand a chance.

    How can you defend a class of people when you don’t know who they are? This idiot defines the Leftists and communists Moonbats in Mass.

  9. SW says:

    SO WHAT? Is this the best you got? She doesn’t want to give a defiinition right then? Google it.
    You Repubutards have people saying womens’ bodies shut down the pregnancy process if they’re raped… and the internet is a series of tubes…

    and you’re calling HER dumb because she doesn’t want to give an exact definition of something so complex as class divisions? Gawd… google it.

    I can tell you who it isn’t. Middle class isn’t investment bankers who launder billions of dollars for drug lords. That’s who she’s fighting against on YOUR behalf… but it’s pearls before swine. God you’re a bunch of f#%% retards.
