Elizabeth Warren Claims Libertarians Want to Increase Taxes, Regulations and the Minimum Wage

Following what appears to some serious Botox treatments, Elizabeth Warren is hitting the talk show circuit promoting her new book, This Fight Is Our Fight: The Battle to Save America's Middle.

If the original American Indians were as confused as Pocahontas about how the world works, it is not difficult to understand how they won few battles outside of the Battle of the Greasy Grass.

In the Maher interview, she claimed that, among others, libertarians want higher taxes, more regulations, and a higher minimum wage:
When you talk about what’s really the basic pieces of a progressive agenda, raise the minimum wage, expand social security, reduce the cost of college so people don’t get crushed by student loan debt, more not less regulation, a progressive taxation- make those at the top pay their fair share. America – Democrats, Republicans, Independents, Libertarians, vegetarians – Americans, by about 2 to 1 are with us on that. The progressive agenda is America’s agenda
For the record, libertarians want to eliminate minimum wage laws, shrink regulations and end the income tax.

She speaks her nonsense coming right out of the gate in the first minute of the clip. WARNING: It doesn't get much better after the first minute.

  1. Well if she's trying to make the point that the majority of Americans are statists, then sadly I must agree.

    Side note: Does anyone else find the Left's simultaneous advocacy of "regulation" and "diversity" to be totally contradictory?

    1. No, to celebrate "diversity" we must all be politically correct, equal, and "inclusive"; that is, IDENTICAL.
