‘IT’S NOT A NUMBERS ISSUE’: WATCH ELIZABETH WARREN STRUGGLE TO DEFINE ‘MIDDLE CLASS’

Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), who campaigned on a platform of fairness and protecting the middle class before winning her seat in November, was recently asked by a Fox affiliate in Boston to define who, exactly, is in the middle class.

Surprisingly, the former Harvard Law professor was unable to give a clear answer, claiming it is not a “numbers issue.”

Red Alert Politics continues:

“When we strengthen education, when we make it possible for kids to go to college, then we strengthen America’s middle class, and that doesn’t mean a dollar figure,” Warren said.

“The middle class is, by definition, a group of people in a certain income level,” the reporter [replied]. “But you’re not willing to say that they are.”

“No…no…because I actually disagree with that,” Warren said.

The reporter argued that when writing legislation, the middle class would be defined by income levels, but Warren disagreed. She said instead that there are many characteristics that define the middle class.

“That sounds a little like a dodge, Senator Warren,” the reporter said.

“No, but it’s not a dodge,” Warren responded.
