Everything Elizabeth Warren Said During Debate Night Economy Question Was a Lie


Wednesday evening saw the very first Democrat debate of the 2020 presidential election. It was a major pander-fest, but Elizabeth Warren probably delivered the biggest pack of lies of the night when she was asked about the economy.

Warren has spent her political career advocating political and economic warfare against our economy, but when a question about the economy was put to her, her “answer” was filled with straight up lies.

Indeed, there were only three tough questions during the entire debate. One was “would you support a 70 percent tax rate” (which all the candidates refused to answer, though self-professed socialist Bill de Blasio later said he supports), “do you support gun confiscation to solve the gun issue” (which all refused to answer), and the one Savannah Guthrie asked of Warren. The rest of the night was one softball after another.

Early in the night, Guthrie asked Warren the following: “You have many plans — free college, free child care, government health care, cancellation of student debt, new taxes, new regulations, the breakup of major corporations. But this comes at a time when 71 percent of Americans say the economy is doing well, including 60 percent of Democrats. What do you say to those who worry this kind of significant change could be risky to the economy? ”

That was an excellent question. After all, Warren bases her entire raison d’etre on the idea that the nation is spiraling into failure, that everyone who isn’t a billionaire is wallowing in poverty, and that “the system is rigged” against everyone but “the rich.” All of this is a lie, fo course, and her “answer” did not disappoint for its falderal.

As Guthrie noted, the largest number of Americans feel that the economy is going great guns. So, how does Warren square her claims that we are all in abject poverty with polls that show few agree with her? Are people so stupid that they don’t even know they are poor and starving?

In reply to the question… well, let’s restate. Warren did not reply to the question. She just rambled on with her talking points and utterly ignored the question.

But, even at that, every word she said is a lie.

If you can stomach watching it, here is what that looked like:

Here is her answer in print:

So I think of it this way. Who is this economy really working for? It’s doing great for a thinner and thinner slice at the top. It’s doing great for giant drug companies. It’s just not doing great for people who are trying to get a prescription filled.

It’s doing great for people who want to invest in private prisons, just not for the African-Americans and Latinx whose families are torn apart, whose lives are destroyed, and whose communities are ruined.

It’s doing great for giant oil companies that want to drill everywhere, just not for the rest of us who are watching climate change bear down upon us.

When you’ve got a government, when you’ve got an economy that does great for those with money and isn’t doing great for everyone else, that is corruption, pure and simple. We need to call it out. We need to attack it head on. And we need to make structural change in our government, in our economy, and in our country.

All of that is a lie. All. Of. It. So, let’s break it down.

“Who is this economy really working for? It’s doing great for a thinner and thinner slice at the top,” Warren began.

That is a lie. Of course, economies benefit “the top” when they are going well. That is how capitalism works. But right now more Americans than ever are working. Indeed, unemployment is at the lowest rate ever recorded for blacks, women, AND Hispanics. So, how is that not benefitting nearly everyone?

“It’s doing great for giant drug companies. It’s just not doing great for people who are trying to get a prescription filled,” she said. This is more scaremongering, but she offers no viable solution.

“It’s doing great for people who want to invest in private prisons, just not for the African-Americans and Latinx whose families are torn apart, whose lives are destroyed, and whose communities are ruined.”

Another Warren lie. Private prisons have absolutely nothing whatever to do with collapsing minority communities. The illegal trade in drugs, gangs, and a devolving set of community standards that excuses victimology among minorities is the problem. Not prisons, provatly run or otherwise.

The next lie:

“It’s doing great for giant oil companies that want to drill everywhere, just not for the rest of us who are watching climate change bear down upon us.”

Without cheap oil, our economy WOULD be floundering because the cost of getting to and from work — not to mention the cost of energy for businesses — would skyrocket to destroy our take-home pay and profits. So, in fact, more drilling and more domestic production is GOOD for us all. That it makes oil producers richer is immaterial to the good it does the rest of us.

And “climate change” is all based on lies, anyway.

Warren sums up with one lie after another:

“When you’ve got a government, when you’ve got an economy that does great for those with money and isn’t doing great for everyone else, that is corruption, pure and simple. We need to call it out. We need to attack it head on. And we need to make structural change in our government, in our economy, and in our country.”

Government does not help an economy unless it stays out of the way, firstly. Second, this economy is doing great for everyone already, so the claim it isn’t is also a Warren lie.
Secondly, how is it “corruption” in any case?

She ends saying, “we need to make structural change in our government, in our economy, and in our country.”

I’ll second that. The structural change we need is to implement the utter destruction of the anti-American Democrat Party.
