Warren Visits Medford, Jabs Brown on Healthcare

"What Scott Brown and the Republicans are running on is to repeal that (the affordable care act) and go back to fighting again -- four years more -- they don't have any alternatives to offer." -Elizabeth Warren

U.S. Senate Candidate Elizabeth Warren stopped in Medford Wednesday as her race with Republican incumbent Scott Brown approaches its final month.

Warren, accompanied by Medford Mayor Michael McGlynn and U.S. Rep. Ed Markey, visited City Hall before heading to the Medford Senior Center, where she made her way to a stage as the theme of Sylvester Stallone's "Rocky" was played by a brass band.

McGlynn gave his official endorsement to Warren and credited her for challenging Wall Street interests before she gave a brief speech. Warren told the audience that the affordable care act's survival -- along with benefits for seniors -- could hinge on who they send to Washington.

"After many years of fighting, we finally got a health care bill that passed the House, that passed the Senate, signed into law by the President and okayed by the United States Supreme Court," Warren said. "What Scott Brown and the Republicans are running on is to repeal that and go back to fighting again -- four years more -- they don't have any alternatives to offer."

It was Warren's third stop in Medford since she officially declared her candidacy. She visited Medford's Democratic Caucus in February and campaigned in the Hillside neighborhood in May.

Brown made a stop in West Medford in July, where he received the endorsement of Medford City Councilor Rick Caraviello.

I donn't think anyone has to answer to you Ray. That is a fact. Idon't think she or her supporters have anything to offer either. If you are going to attack others opinions than expect the same.

Thanks for answering me, Stacy, to tell me that no one has to answer me. It's also funny that you assume that I'm a Warren supporter; you have no idea which candidate I support. Another brainless comment. Keep'em coming!

You are a Warren supporter it is obvious. Best of luck with that.

When Scott Brown first arrived in Washington, he was known as the 'ATM for the banks.' Not because he handed out cash, but becuase they were working on Wall St reform and the banks found they could ask Scott brown to make changes to the bill and he would. The changes made Wall St more profitable and our economy more at risk to the factors that caused the great recession, 8.5 million Americans their jobs, and $14 trillion in homeowner value. One of the changes Wall St banks asked for was to shift $19,000,000,000 in costs from Wall St to taxpayers. To me it's clear, he's for Wall St.

To all the college students that worry about their loans. Attend a community college first and take all those boring not needed courses at a cheaper rate, if your working you can probably pay cash down. This is not an irrational idea I have a few friends doing this. Then you transfer to the big name schools like Tufts. If more people did this you would see how fast tuition would start dropping with less students enrolling their first year. It's all about supply and demand, we the consumers set prices on things.
