Statement by Senator Warren on President Obama's State of the Union Address

Washington, DC - United States Senator Elizabeth Warren released the following statement about President Obama's State of the Union address:

"President Obama said it right: ‘This country does best when everyone gets their fair shot, everyone does their fair share and everyone plays by the same set of rules.' He laid out ways we can create more opportunities for working families -- helping students get an education without getting crushed by debt, expanding access to paid sick time and family leave, and investing in medical and scientific research for the future. He also made clear that the White House will push back hard against efforts to roll back critical Wall Street reforms. Families just need a level playing field, and if they can get it, we can rebuild America's great middle class. It's time to get started."
