(Feb. 27, 2016 01:07) Democratic Party presidential candidate Bernie Sanders on Friday received an endorsement from former Clinton Administration Labor Secretary Robert Reich.

“I endorse Bernie Sanders for president of the United States,” Reich wrote in a Facebook post. “He’s leading a movement to reclaim America for the many, not the few. And such a political mobilization – a ‘political revolution,’ as he puts it – is the only means by which we can get the nation back from the moneyed interests that now control so much of our economy and democracy.

Elizabeth Warren’s Social Contract: ‘There is nobody in this country who got rich on his own’

20110922_1200 Elizabeth Warren on The Myth of Class Warfare (addMoreJuice)(YT).jpg (Feb. 18, 2016 21:45 ET) Since Bernie Sanders’ rise in the polls after putting up tough competition in Iowa and in New Hampshire against the purported “inevitable” contender Hillary Clinton, there has been a lot of talk about who Sanders’ running mate may be.

Many have contemplated Sen. Elizabeth Warren as an ideal candidate who has sported parallel stances on issues the Sanders campaign has been touting during his campaign.

Only speculation can be derived as to why Warren has not outwardly “endorsed” Sanders.

Perhaps she is allowing her supporters to make up their own minds and determinations by looking at her stances on the issues, and not who she may be endorsing for the presidency.

The impassioned Warren, while campaigning in August 2011, made some impacting remarks captured on video and then subsequently posted on YouTube the following month in September.

One of Warren’s most resonating quotes from that Andover, Mass., meeting, “There is nobody in this country who got rich on his own. Nobody,” has left a favorable impression with her supporters.

You can watch the 2-minute video and read a transcript of that meeting below.



From 00:55:
There is nobody in this country who got rich on his own.
You built a factory out there – good for you.
But I want to be clear.
You moved your goods to market on the roads the rest of us paid for.
You hired workers the rest of us paid to educate.
You were safe in your factory because of police forces and fire forces that the rest of us paid for.
You didn’t have to worry that marauding bands would come and seize everything at your factory,
and hire someone to protect against this because of the work the rest of us did.
Now look. You built a factory and it turned into something terrific or a great idea.
God Bless!
Keep a hunk of it.
But part of the underlying social contract is you take a hunk of that and pay forward for the next kid who comes along.

Elizabeth Warren, August 2011
