SHE'S HERE! #ElizabethWarren takes the stage. #theMajorityRules
Tune in NOW:
When #ElizabethWarren was urged to run for Senate, she was also told she couldn't win.

"If a woman doesn't run, I guarantee a woman will never win. You won't get what you won't fight for." — @ewarren #theMajorityRules
@ewarren .@ewarren made sure she did two things every day:
— She found a group of people to talk about what's important and why she's in the fight.
— Every time she met a little girl, she'd tell her "Hello, my name is Elizabeth, and I'm running for Senate because that's what girls do."
@ewarren "I truly not just believe in, but saw first hand, the transformative power of women who never saw themselves as part of...the political process say 'I'm not on the sidelines anymore. I'm going to get in this fight and make the change I believe in.' @ewarren #theMajorityRules
@ewarren On what @ewarren will do to combat violence against #trans women of color:

"It's getting out and saying this issue matters...and having a president who welcomes trans [folks] to the White House, who talks about the importance of health care and educational opportunities..."(1/2)
@ewarren (2/2) and our criminal justice system — all the different places trans people are not only discriminated against but put at risk for their lives." #theMajorityRules
@ewarren .@ewarren: "As president I will reverse the #TitleX gag rule. But let's go further. It's also time to #RepealHyde. Let's go further than that: Let's make our democracy work again." #theMajorityRules
@ewarren 3/4 people in America support #RoeVWade, but we have relied exclusively on #SCOTUS to protect it...in a democracy when 3/4 people think we should have [this] rule, it's time to stop playing defense in the courts and start playing offense in Congress. @ewarren #theMajorityRules
@ewarren Q: Will you support unions for healthcare and childcare workers?
A: @ewarren yes. And let's go further: It's time for a wealth tax in America. #theMajorityRules
@ewarren "We've exploited the largely black and brown women who care for our children enough. [In the wealth tax plan] we'll put federal money into early learning experiences for all babies—not just babies born into privilege—& will pay the people providing those services well." @ewarren
@ewarren When @ewarren came to the senate, she focused on funding for medical research —particularly on groups that don't often get studied, like women, people of color, and others.
"That's how we make change, and how we make lasting change."
@ewarren Q: What is your healthcare plan for older immigrants?

@ewarren: "I strongly support medicare for all. And when I say for all, I mean for all. Healthcare is a basic human right."

@ewarren "We need to deal with the crisis at the border which by and large has been created by the Trump Administration...We need to be a country that lives our values every day and that means we do not take children away from their families." @ewarren
@ewarren "We need to close down for-profit detention centers. And we need to provide health care when people are here in the United States. That's our responsibility." @ewarren
@ewarren "Medicare for all is not about the relationship between the fed govt, state govt and private insurer. It's about the relationship between the fed govt and each and every person, and ensuring that everyone in this country gets access to the healthcare they need." @ewarren
@ewarren "We need an immigration system that focuses on the safety of the US & live our values every day. We do not make our country safer when we spend resources taking families apart, when we pick up people who pose no threat to anyone. When we destroy families, destroy lives." @ewarren
@ewarren "I think this is a fundamental moment in America and the kind of country we want to be. I believe we build the America of our best values when we pick up each other's fights and stay together...Immigration does not make our country weaker, it makes our country stronger." @ewarren
