America Needs Elizabeth Warren In The Senate

From Daily KOS:

During last night's U.S. Senate debate in Massachusetts, Elizabeth Warren had some amazing comments about Republican Scott Brown's so-called support for women:

EW: So [Scott Brown has] gone to Washington and he's had some good votes. But he's had exactly one chance to vote for equal pay for equal work, and he voted no. He had exactly one chance to vote for insurance coverage for birth control and other preventive services for women. He voted no. And he had exactly one chance to vote for a pro-choice woman -- from Massachusetts -- to the United States Supreme Court, and he voted no. Those are bad votes for women.

The women of Massachusetts need a senator they can count on not some of the time, but all of the time. I want to go to Washington to be there for all of our daughters and all of our granddaughters.

This one really matters. There is a LOT at stake here.

Moderator: You have another twenty seconds if you wish.

EW: No, No, I think that says it all. I am a mother of a daughter and a grandmother of granddaughters and this is about their future. And I want to be blunt. We should not be fighting about equal pay for equal work and access to birth control in 2012. These issues were resolved years ago until the Republicans brought them back.

We need this amazing woman to be the next United States senator from Massachusetts. This lady is a class act.
