On Wednesday, WRKO radio host Jeff Kuhner accused Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts of being a hypocrite for criticizing the top 1 percent despite being worth millions of dollars.
Warren was at the WRKO studio in Boston for an interview, when Kuhner addressed her in the hallway. In a matter of minutes, the situation escalated quickly when Kuhner asked why Warren has built her career fighting against the one percent when she herself is a member of that class.
In defense, Warren spoke about her father’s job as a janitor and her mother’s constant recycling of different minimum wage jobs.
She said she was able to advance to her current position purely because of the “equality of opportunity” provided by government programs. Which by the way glad we live in a country that invests in it people although there has been a lot of debate over her claimed nationality.
Previously, Warren did make a living working as a consultant for insurance companies and big banks. Again, not a big deal.
Between 2008 and 2010, travelers insurance paid Warren $212,000 for consulting work.
She has also done consulting work for Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale, a law firm that represents Citigroup, JP Morgan Chase and Goldman Sachs.
Good, so hey Senator how about you stop messing with taxes so those of us looking to do as well as you can make our way to the top.
