Warren Sworn Into Senate, Says She'll Work With 'Anyone Who Will Fight for America's Families'

In an interview with Fox 25 news after her Thursday morning swearing-in ceremony, the new U.S. senator told reporters she'd "work her tail off" in Washington.

Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren, who was sworn in to office on Thursday, told reporters she plans to "work her tail off" and will work with "anyone who will fight for America's families" in Washington, D.C.

"I am honored to have the opportunity to serve as your senator, and I'll never stop fighting for you," she said via Twitter on Thursday morning after she was sworn in by Vice President Joe Biden in Washington, D.C.

Warren told reporters she was "delighted" by her committee assignments. 

"I'm going to be on the Banking Committee, which is something I really wanted to do," Warren told Fox25, "And I'm going to be on the HELP Committee which means we deal with health, education, labor, pensions … really the economics of working families."

Warren said she was "really disappointed" by the fiscal cliff negotiations. 

"Our spending should reflect our values," she said in the interview with Fox25. "The idea that there should be cuts in benefits for seniors and Social Security in order to fund more tax breaks for billionares and Fortune 500 companies, that's a value judgment, that's not just an economic judgment."

She had a chance to help "working" people but she "fought" against them when she worked for Traveler's Insurance to limit compensation to asbesto's victims.
