Elizabeth Warren interviewed by Jon Stewart (The Daily Show)

Caught this interview with Elizabeth Warren on The Daily show. Particularly liked the part about value:

Whenever we give tax breaks or spend tax money, we’re investing. Those investments reflect our values, or rather, they reflect the values of our legislators:

  • Tax breaks for the wealthy.
  • Tax increases on middle class.
  • Less support of college education.
  • Less investment in infrastructure

…The list goes on & on.

Part 2 is particularly good…

I later heard a discussion on Up w/ Chris Hayes that highlighted how the tax code reflects the values of our nation (or legislators). Our tax system rewards investment (long term capital gains of 15%) over work (income tax rates average well above 15%).

Get in! No time to explain!
