Q&A: What Would You Ask Elizabeth Warren?

With a live Q&A chat coming up on Friday, Patch wants to know: What would you ask the Massachusetts U.S. Senate candidate?

If you could ask Massachusetts U.S. Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren a question, what would it be?

Elizabeth Warren will be joining us live on Friday, July 13, at 1:15 p.m., providing an opportunity for you to ask her about where she stands on a particular issue or the upcoming election. 

Wondering about her stance on the national debt? What about healthcare? Education?

To join Friday's chat, head on over to our homepage from 1:15 p.m. to 2 p.m. on Friday.

Why did you choose to run as a Democrat, not as an independent?
Chris Helms (Editor) July 11, 2012 at 03:42 PM
Thanks, Jeff. We're compiling a list for Friday's chat.

Why aren't direct questions about your claims of Indian heritage answered by you? Likewise questions about your use of "minority" status to gain employment. Don't those questions go straight to your veracity and trustworthiness as a future Senator? Massachusetts may at times set a low bar, but really.., lowering your head, ignoring the question, and regurgitating your poll-tested 'looking forward' party line may prepare you for "Face The Nation", but Massachusetts wants to know.

Do you think if you dont answer questions, that people will not notice you didnt answer? Do professors at Harvard, allow for students to answer test questions with, "i already addressed that?" Or would that response receive an F?

Do you consider yourself to be a minority? Do you consider yourself to be a woman of color as proclaimed by Harvard? Are you comfortable that Harvard Law touted you as a woman of color at a time when they were under pressure for a lack of minorities on the faculty? How does your history of flipping foreclosed homes or providing the funding for family members who did the same in Oklahoma fit with your self identification as a consumer advocate?

I have two questions: First, how has your teaching career helped prepare you for serving in the Senate? And second, what is the most memorable story you have heard on the campiagn trail?
Liz Raboin July 12, 2012 at 07:42 PM
My question would be: Do you feel that, as Senator, you can do anything to build bridges in this very derisive Congress? You have my vote. Senior Citizen, Liz - N. Central MA
Jack White July 12, 2012 at 08:34 PM
I have several questions: First, did you, as your opponent so succinctly put it " Check the box?" Second, your recent response to this situation was this is "family" stuff and therefore off limits...Yet, you raised the issue...Can we expect such responses to hard questions if you are elected to office Third, what has the Cherokee Nation said about your alleged tribal membership?

Liz Raboin, Warren has criticized Scott Brown for voting 78% of the time with the republicans. Do you think she'd vote 22% of the time with republicans or 100% of the time with democrats? How do you build bridges when your views are so far left your idea of compromise is when the other side does what you want? She lacks morals and ethics in her private life by claiming a minority status she doesn't have. What makes you think she won't do the same as an elected offical? If she tried running in most other states her candidacy would be a joke. In Massachusetts all you need is a (D) after your name and you're all set. We've had 3 straight MA House speakers convicted of felonies yet people keep voting the straight democratic ticket. John Tierney has nothing to worry about in his re-election with people like you voting.
Jim McCann July 12, 2012 at 08:40 PM
The question I'd like asked is: You criticized Scott Brown for voting with the republicans 78% of the time. Do you think you'd be so open-minded to vote only 78% of the time with the democrats or would you be much closer to 100%. If your statements are any indication, the 100% mark would be expected. In a time when you decry the gridlock in congress, how can we expect you to improve things if you are so beholden to the democrats?

if corporation are not people how can you have a corporation??????
Bubba July 12, 2012 at 09:38 PM
Additional prospective questions for Ms Warren.. -Did you meet with the 2 Cherokee Nation ombudswomen that traveled from Oklahoma to speak with you last month? -Did you ever "check" the minority or woman-of-color or American Indian et al box.., when seeking employment anywhere at anytime? -Can you produce any document that identifies you or your Great Great Grandma as any % Cherokee. -Has the Cherokee Nation provided any statement to refute or support your claim? -Have ever paid dues to or become a member of the Cherokee Nation? I have light colored hair and like the cartoon character THOR,,,, that doesn't confirm Nordic ancestry You really puzzle me

How do you propose to fix the economy by increasing taxes on the corporations and business owners that create jobs? How do you propose to fix the economy by increasing government spending? Do you favor restrictions on EBT cards to prevent our hard-earned tax dollars from being spent on alcohol, tobacco, firearms, lotto tickets, etc? Are you capable of answering any question without referencing "Massachusetts' families"?
bob July 13, 2012 at 02:00 AM
Really some excellent questions posted here but my guess is most of them won't be asked...
