LETTER: Elizabeth Warren Invests in People

Watertown's Isaac Maze-Rothstein writes about why he is throwing his support behind Democratic Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren.

LETTER: Elizabeth Warren Invests in People

Editor

I did not attend the Watertown party for Elizabeth Warren, but it makes me proud to live in . I'll be volunteering for her over the summer, and hopefully will go to the next big events in Watertown. 

I love her because she is an advocate for the people. She has been a champion of medicare and social security. This means a lot to me because my grandpa recently fell and has been able to go to the Sherrill House in Boston because of medicare. Seeing grandfather improve makes me realize how important this program is for my family and for so many other families across the Commonwealth. 

By contrast, Scott Brown has invested in corporations. He voted to maintain massive subsidies for oil companies. This is not making government more efficient or cutting wasteful spending. He supports giving money to some of the most profitable companies in the world. 

The reason why I volunteer for Elizabeth, and not Scott, is simple: he invests in companies, she invests in people.
