Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, “economic opportunity is slipping further and further out of reach” for average Americans.”
On Sunday at an ACLU Civil Liberties meeting she made a profound and simple statement:
**”We have to face it: The game is rigged in Congress.”
Referencing the minimum wage problems, Warren also said:
>We face a basic question in this country: Who does this government work for? Is government to advance the interests of the rich and the powerful? Does government exercise its power only for those who can hire armies of lobbyists and lawyers? Is it there only to strengthen the strong and enrich the wealthy? Or does government work for all of us?
Also in attendance and recognized were Participant Media CEO Jim Berk; Grammy Award-winner Cyndi Lauper, co-founder of True Colors Fund; Cameron Strang, chairman and CEO of Warner Bros. Records and Warner/Chappell Music Publishing; and longtime ACLU board member Marvin Schachter.
>”The Bill of Rights Dinner is an important event for the ACLU SoCal because we take time to recognize those individuals who through their work help shape our culture for the better by shining a spotlight on the precious principles of liberty, justice and equality,” said Hector Villagra, the group’s executive director.
“Warren told The Hollywood Reporter that when she looks out over a Hollywood crowd, she’s always struck by the fact they’re applauding policies that will end up costing them money.”[SOURCE](http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/elizabeth-warren-tells-hollywood-game-747738)
