Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren was forced to further backtrack on her dire predictions regarding the GOP tax bill Wednesday, telling reporters she was “delighted” to hear that a local energy company in her home state was reducing its rates due to the Republican-led tax legislation.
The liberal lawmaker was speaking with Fox News when she was asked to comment on whether the Democratic party plans to repeal the GOP tax cuts should they take control of Congress following the 2018 midterm elections.
“What we have to do is change it,” Warren fired-back. “You got to take out the parts that are giant giveaways to big corporations that right now the Republicans plan for hard-working families to eventually pay for it.”
The Senator was then asked to comment on recent reports that Eversource, a Massachusetts-based energy company, was lowering its costs to consumers as a direct result of the tax cuts.
“And good for them. I’m delighted to hear that,” Warren said, before returning to her anti-capitalist routine.
“It is $1.5 trillion the Republicans gave away to billionaires and to giant corporations,” Warren added. “And they expect hardworking families to just pick up the ticket on that. I want those breaks to go directly to hardworking families. Not to a bunch of rich folks.”
HELL FREEZES OVER: Elizabeth Warren ADMITS Tax Cuts Are WORKING
Hyper-liberal Senator Elizabeth Warren was forced to eat her own words on Friday, directly acknowledging that the GOP tax plan was helping millions of working-class families across the United States; adding she’s “in favor of all of that.”
The Massachusetts Democrat was speaking during a radio interview when she made the rare admission, saying she’s “glad” when she reads “that there are companies that have given out” big holiday bonuses following the law’s passage.
“I am glad when I read that there are companies that have given out $1,000 bonuses.”
“Look, I am glad when I read that there are companies that have given out $1,000 bonuses. There are companies that say they’re going to re-work some of their benefit plans. I’m in favor of all of that. I want to see working families do better, you bet,” admitted Warren.
The Senator immediately went back to her tired script, saying she was in favor of the bonuses but unhappy that the tax cuts resulted in a “giveaway” to American businesses.
“But let’s keep in mind, the giveaway was $1.4 trillion and it was given directly to the biggest corporations and the billionaires in this country,” she concluded.

KNIVES OUT: Elizabeth Warren GOES AFTER Oprah Winfrey Over 2020 Run
Possible 2020 Democratic contender Sen. Elizabeth Warren threw cold-water on the presidential buzz surrounding television superstar Oprah Winfrey on Wednesday, telling CNN she “doesn’t know” if the US is prepared for another billionaire president.
The liberal lawmaker was speaking with CNN’s Alisyn Camerota when she was asked to comment on Winfrey’s highly-publicized acceptance speech at the 75th annual Golden Globe Awards over the weekend, where the TV star pledged to the American people that “a new day is on the horizon.”
“Senator Warren, last question. Oprah Winfrey for president, your thoughts?” asked the ‘New Day’ host.
“You know, wasn’t that a fabulous speech?” deflected Warren. “And hearing Oprah’s voice and her energy and passion and her determination, it’s inspiring to all of us, and she shows great leadership. And I am delighted that she’s doing it.”
“Is the country hungry for another mega-celebrity billionaire?” pressed Camerota.
“I don’t know. But here’s what I do know. We are, right now, in the middle of a fight that will determine our future for generations to come,” said the Senator from Massachusetts.
