Warren misfires by targeting banks, business

Elizabeth Warren’s campaign advertisements, in which she states that she is for the middle class but is standing up against corporations, banks, and Wall Street, show a lack of understanding of America.

US corporations are the backbone of the economy, providing goods and services, employing many millions of Americans, the vast majority being the hard-working middle class.

US banks also employ millions of our citizens, provide daily financial services, loans for major purchases, and funding for new businesses.


Wall Street investment services are essential for 401(k) plans, union pension plans, and private investments.

It seems to me that anyone who wants to represent the people of Massachusetts as well as all the citizens of the United States should have a better grasp of how the country operates. The country cannot afford to send Warren to the Senate.
