Elizabeth Warren’s Refreshingly Gloomy Message & The Young People Who Love Her For It
Gironza’s friend Eli Salazar, 23, who also supported Bernie in 2016, said she was moved after watching Warren in the
September 12 Democratic presidential debate. “I think because America has been historically so focused on capitalism and developing that as a nation, her ideals and goals are more practical than Bernie’s are,” she said. “Bernie, I agree with a lot of what he’s saying, but it’s more of an ideal than something that can be put into practice. And I can see, for example, the two-cent rule, it would make a lot of sense to the future of America now, not 10 years from now. Right now, we’re super-divided and this makes sense for a broader audience.” Warren has proposed a
two-cent tax on assets over $50 million, with which she says the government could pay for many of her plans, including universal child care and free college tuition.
