Elizabeth Ann Warren is the Senior Democratic Senator from Massachusetts. She's an awesome liberal and one of the best members of the U.S. Senate.

Early Political Career

In November of 2008, Senate Majority leader Harry Reid appointed Warren to head the Congressional Oversight Panel, which oversaw the implementation of the government bailouts of banks during the late 2000s recession. The panel had released monthly reports evaluating the government bailout.

Warren was an early supporter of the creation of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. The CFPB was established in the Dodd-Frank Wall Street reform bill signed by Barack Obama. Many liberals hoped Obama would nominate her to head the bureau, Republicans blocked her nomination because she'd be too good at that job. [2]

Election to the U.S. Senate

In 2011, Warren announced she would challengeScott Brown, who had somehow been elected in Massachusetts, for re-election. She won the Democratic Party nomination unopposed. The race was one of the most closely watched in the country and the most expensive Senate race of the 2012 election cycle. [3]

Elizabeth Warren terrified Conservatives and business interests.The Chamber of Commerce went as far as to say that “no other candidate in 2012 represents a greater threat to free enterprise than Professor Warren.”[4]

Luckily, Bay Staters were not fooled by this Propaganda, and Warren won with 53.7% of the vote, making Scott Brown the only incumbent Senator to lose re-election in the 2012 election cycle.

U.S. Senate

After winning election, Warren had been appointed to the Senate Banking Committee, which oversees government regulation of banks. In her first committee hearing, Warren criticized several regulators for being too soft on big banks. She told them that she was "really concerned that 'too big to fail' has become 'too big for trial.'" Her willingness to take on big banks made her a hero to liberals and the Occupy Wall Street movement, and has earned her the hatred of conservatives. TIME Magazine says she's a “New Sheriff of Wall Street” and put her twice into their list of the 100 most influential people in the USA. [5]

The first bill Elizabeth Warren introduced was a student loan reform. Her bill would allow college students to take government loans at the same rate big banks can take out government. The bill has been endorsed by Bernie Sanders, another awesome senator, who said  "the only thing wrong with this bill is that [she] thought of it and I didn’t".  [6]

Running for president

Warren wanted to challenge Trump for the Presidency in 2020. She was one of many Democratic Party contenders for that. Warren has made fighting corruption in Business and in Politics a major part of her platform. [7]


  • Warren said that Congressing is lacking a spine. [8]
