It is shocking to hear both President Obama and Elizabeth Warren demonize hard working men and women with their comments and it shows that they truly don’t understand how the private economy works. It takes a vision, commitment, dedication, and personal and financial sacrifice to live the American dream of owning a business and becoming successful.
Warren specifically has spent her entire life in academics. She doesn’t understand how jobs are created and how the economy grows. The fact that she is trying to pit business owners against everyone else is counterproductive to improving the economy especially since she offers no solutions. Americans do not need to be ashamed of success.
Scott Brown knows that we should all be working together to improve this economy, increase hiring, and get America back on track. He doesn’t play class warfare or attack America’s small businesses. Instead he encourages them because he understands the simple fact that private sector growth is good for our entire economy. Elizabeth Warren simply doesn’t understand this, and that is very revealing of how out of touch she is.
