Elizabeth Warren, The People's Hero

Elizabeth Warren deserves her own testament

...in the Book of AWESOME.

Yesterday on "The Last Word," Senator Warren spoke with Lawrence O'Donnell about crushing student debt and the irony that individual students pay more in interest than corporate banks—bank rates are at .75% while student interest rates will be raised to 6.8% come this July. Senator Warren introduced a piece of legislation yesterday—her first piece of legislation—in the Senate proposing that students pay the same rate as banks.

Is the rate differential surprising? Not really, considering who owns America, and how American culture values the "elitism" of capitalism over the "elitism" of education.
