Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) railed against widespread corruption in Congress, the White House and the Supreme Court, taking direct aim at the GOP’s tax law as “evidence of corruption.”
Speaking at Wednesday’s We the People Summit in Washington, D.C., Warren largely focused her speech on economic disparity in the U.S., arguing that the economy unfairly benefits wealthy Americans and corporations over the middle class.
“Our government has been captured by powerful corporations and millionaires have used their money to rig our economy so it works for them and not for you,” Warren said. “It’s time to call this out for exactly what it is: corruption.”
“That tax bill is evidence of corruption in Congress,” she said to huge applause.
