“President Obama, like many others in both parties,” Warren said, “talk about a set of big national statistics that look shiny and great but increasingly have giant blind spots.”Why do Democrats hate poor people?
The criticism echoed much of what Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) said in the presidential primary campaign he lost against Hillary Clinton. Some said that Sanders’ economics seemed to be similar to that of Trump as a populist candidate.
“The lived experiences of most Americans is that they are being left behind in this economy,” Warren continued. “Worse than being left behind, they’re getting kicked in the teeth.”
Like Sanders, she also accused both parties of abandoning the poor in favor of the wealthy. “The Republicans have clearly thrown their lot in with the rich and the powerful, but so have a lot of Democrats,” she added.
