Power and Privilege: The Elizabeth Warren Story

by Pejman Yousefzadeh on April 26, 2012

I continue to think that class warfare is abhorrent. But if it is to be waged, then I guess that I shouldn’t feel guilty about linking to this:

U.S. Sen. Scott Brown’s campaign is blasting Democratic Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren’s financial history as she campaigns in support of low-interest student loans, saying the Harvard Law professor’s interest-free loan from Harvard means she is too out of touch with students’ everyday struggles.

Warren disclosed the 20-year interest free loan from Harvard, which lent her between $15,000 and $50,000 in 1996, in financial disclosure forms filed with the Senate last September.

“Let me get this straight: struggling students and families pay more, so multi-millionaire Warren can pay nothing? This sweetheart deal adds insult to injury for the students whose high tuition costs have already made Warren a wealthy one-percenter, and reveals yet again Professor Warren’s hypocritical idea of fairness,” wrote Brown’s campaign manager Jim Barnett.

(Via InstaPundit.) Sauce for the goose and all that. Warren is having real problems relating to everyday residents of Massachusetts. The candidate who claimed to have created “the intellectual foundation” for the Occupy movement appears to have no clue whatsoever how the 99% live.
