CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Massachusetts Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren said President Barack Obama is a fighter for the middle class. And she slammed his Republican opponent, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, as someone who wants to cut taxes for the rich and big corporations.
Warren spoke during a prime-time address at the Democratic National Convention on Wednesday.
Warren said that for years America's middle class "has been chipped, squeezed and hammered."
Obama "gets it," Warren said, because he's spent his life working for the middle class. She said he will continue to do so.
Warren says that's a contrast with Romney. The Senate candidate says Romney's economic plans will hammer the middle class by pulverizing financial reforms, changing Medicare and vaporizing the Obama's health care law.
