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

After her Thursday morning swearing-in ceremony, Warren told reporters she'd "work her tail off" in Washington.

 

Democratic 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."

Maybe now Sen. Warren will release her Harvard documents verifying whether she claimed herself as native American or not.

"Our spending should reflect our values," I guess that is why she flew first class to Washington for her swearing in. She is only "one of the people" when she is looking for votes. Then again, even if a cardboard box had a "D" on it, it would have been elected. Sad but very true.
