Tool of the Week: Liz Warren, trifecta tool

Empower Wisconsin | Nov. 4, 2019

It takes a special kind of tool to stand in solidarity with a greedy teachers union days after demanding asylum for transgender illegal immigrants. 

Elizabeth Warren is just that kind of tool. 

As Empower Wisconsin reported last week Warren turned up at a Chicago’s teachers union pep rally asking Americans to feel the pain of high-priced educators in desperate need of a 15-percent raise.  

A new contract pays beginning teachers a base salary of $56,000 a year, with senior teachers bringing in six figures. That’s a lot of money in a school district mired in failure, the kind of money a good portion of American workers will never see. 

The Democratic presidential candidate earlier in the week teamed up with Wisconsin U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin to demand the Department of Homeland Security to “use its discretion to release members of vulnerable populations, including transgender detainees.”

Again, Warren champions an issue that ranks relatively low on the list of most Americans’ priorities. 

The Massachusetts senator wrapped up her action-packed week of sucking up to big labor and far-left constituencies by rolling out a massive $20.5 trillion Medicare for All health care plan. The proposal would smack high-income earners, clobber income growth for middle-class Americans, and wipe out private insurance and the jobs the sector supports. It also includes a lot of assumptions and faith in a single-payer system. A majority of Americans have said they’re not comfortable with such leaps of faith. 

So Warren’s message this week: She’s ready to help transgender illegal immigrants, bloated teachers unions and big government health care takeovers. And she’s ready to help herself to a bigger share of your pay check. What a campaign message. 

What a tool. 

With a week like that, Liz Warren is richly deserving of the dubious honor that is the Empower Wisconsin Tool of the Week.
