Statement from 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:

"As President Obama said tonight, ‘democracy breaks down when the average person feels their voice doesn't matter, that the system is rigged in favor of the rich or the powerful.' Congress has done enough damage with tax breaks for the rich and special favors for the banks.  It's time to put hardworking people first, to invest in our kids by lowering the cost of college and cutting student loan interest rates, by giving seniors and veterans a raise, by rebuilding our infrastructure and rewriting our tax laws so companies build jobs here in America.  Like the President, I'm full of optimism that we can build a stronger America together -- it just takes our voices and our votes."
