video: Warren’s Latest Ad Focuses on Rebuilding America

Monday, August 06, 2012

 

Senate candidate, Elizabeth Warren (D), launched a new ad that showcases the need to focus on rebuilding America to compete internationally.

"We've got bridges and roads in need of repair and thousands of people in need of work. Why aren't we rebuilding America?" she says in the ad titled "Rebuild."

The ad also focuses on what Warren is calling one of America's key competitors, China.

"Our competitors are putting people to work, building a future. China invests 9 percent of its GDP in infrastructure," she says.

Warren has spoken out about the need to invest in infrastructure, education, and the nation's future. At her speech at the Teamsters Local 170, Warren said, “I’m scared for America’s future. That’s why I’m in this race,” she said. Warren discussed several areas in which America has faltered and opposed its own working middle class families. “Right now, we’re investing 2.4 percent for our future, and the Republicans are looking for a way to cut that too. Not only does 2.4 percent not invest in the future, it doesn’t fund the present.”

"We can do better," Warren says in her new ad. "We can build a foundation for a strong new economy and get people in Massachusetts to work right now."

"Rebuild" features Warren speaking with construction workers and invites viewers to read the plan at her website.
