Firebrand Senator Elizabeth Warren introduced new legislation this week; unveiling her ‘Accountable Capitalism Act’ that seeks to make the nation’s largest companies “more accountable” to local communities than “shareholders.”
Warren revealed her potential 2020 campaign promise in an op-ed published by the Wall Street Journal, where the left-wing legislator slammed the country’s biggest corporations for not treating their employees as “priorities.”
“That shift has had a tremendous effect on the economy,” she wrote. “In the early 1980s, large American companies sent less than half their earnings to shareholders, spending the rest on their employees and other priorities.”
“But between 2007 and 2016, large American companies dedicated 93% of their earnings to shareholders,” Warren added.
“To give employees, communities and other stakeholders a leg up, her bill would require companies with more than $1 billion in annual revenue to obtain a federal corporate charter. That charter would require corporate directors to ‘consider the interests of all major corporate stakeholders—not only shareholders—in company decisions. Shareholders could sue if they believed directors weren’t fulfilling those obligations,’” writes the Washington Examiner.

Hyper-liberal Senator and possible 2020 candidate Elizabeth Warren out-right dismissed the booming US economy Thursday, bizarrely claiming that Americans are working 3 or 4 jobs to “put food on the table.”
The firebrand Senator was speaking with MSNBC when she was asked to comment on July’s jobs report which showed unemployment claims fell to the lowest levels seen since 1969.

“When corporations are doing well they no longer share with their employees. There was a time when the unemployment rate went down and it was a great thing. When people are working minimum wage jobs, or they’re working 2, 3, or 4 jobs to put food on the table… to simply say the unemployment rate went down just doesn’t get you there,” said Warren.

FIREWORKS: Sen. Warren ROASTED at Town Hall for Saying Justice System COMPLETELY ‘RACIST’
Firebrand Senator Elizabeth Warren was publicly called-out during a Town Hall event this week, with one person asking if she was severely damaging the US justice system after she referred to it as “racist from front to back.”
Warren was speaking in Fitchburg, Massachusetts when one man confronted the liberal legislator for claiming thousands of workers in the US Justice System were inherently “racist.”
“As a young American of color the recent comments you made are disconcerting to me… I’m just concerned that your rhetoric is inciting some of the division you claim the President is purporting,” said the questioner.
