The inspiration for Elizabeth Warren’s new book, “Persist,“ began while reflecting on the events of this past year.
The Massachusetts senator said, “Think about what’s happened… A global pandemic, a racial reckoning an armed insurrection, a new president.“
“Persist” is a personal journey through Warren’s own life, making the case along the way for her most passionate policy positions. But she says it is not a memoir. Warren says it is about the next 100 days in America.
Asked if she feels a clock is ticking because Democrats could lose control of the House and possibly the Senate in two years, Warren said, “I feel like a clock is ticking because the need is enormous.”
For Warren, those needs include affordable childcare, the cancellation of student loan debt and a wealth tax. She is encouraged to see President Biden open to all of it.
