Firebrand Senator Elizabeth Warren unveiled her plan to crackdown on corporate influence in politics Tuesday, announcing new guidelines that would prohibit DC lawmakers from owning stock in private companies.
The Massachusetts senator released the proposal during a speaking event at the National Press Club, saying the only way to eliminate corruption from the nation’s capital was to “padlock the revolving door” between large corporations and politicians.
The bill -titled the Anti-Corruption and Public Integrity Act- would ban members of Congress, Cabinet appointees, federal judges and other officials from owning and trading stocks.
“Today I’m introducing the most ambitious anti-corruption legislation proposed in Congress since Watergate,” she claimed.
“Right now, that problem begins with a president who may be vulnerable to financial blackmail from a hostile foreign power and God knows who else — because it’s a president and his family who may be personally profiting off hundreds of policy decisions every day — but we don’t know, because he won’t show us his tax returns and won’t get rid of his personal business interests,” she added.

DEM DENIAL: Warren Dismisses Unemployment Rate, Says Americans WORKING 4 JOBS to Survive
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.
