Elizabeth Warren: People Think I'm Capitalism's Savior
1:32 PM, Jul 30, 2012 • By MICHAEL WARREN
Massachusetts Democrat Elizabeth Warren says Wall Street types tell her she could "save capitalism" if she wins her race for U.S. Senate. Here's what Warren recently told a reporter, National Journal reports:
Warren, who is running against Republican incumbent Scott Brown, has said she "created much of the intellectual foundation" for the anti-capitalist Occupy Wall Street movement. And a video of Warren telling supporters that "nobody in this country...got rich on their own" went viral with liberals last year and may have inspired President Obama's comments earlier this month that business owners "didn't build" their businesses.
Update: This post incorrectly stated that Warren said supporters called her the "savior of capitalism," when it fact she said those supporters said she could "save capitalism." The post has been updated to correct this mistake.
