    Miner: Elizabeth Warren’s biz ‘hypocritical’ - BostonHerald.com

    it was nice of her to not want to overturn the coal act.

    she didn't want to fuck over all the retired coal miners, just the ones for which she was paid.

    clearly, she'll fight for me. :rolleyes:

    fuck you, liz.

    go back to oklahoma

    your momma's callin you

    the pemmican is ready

    She did what lawyers do. If you read the entire article with an open mind - it doesn't sound too bad.

    Not too bad unless you have asbestos in your lungs, or not too bad if you don't mind relinquishing your hard earned pension benefits! It just goes to show she does know a thing or two about how "the system is rigged against the little guy" which has been her campaign mantra. Other than that, it doesn't sound too bad at all... :lol:

    What sounds worse is your reading comprehension.

    People read but apparently many of us do not understand what they have read.

    Apparently all of it.

    Oh so it's OK for the "big guy" to be protected when she says so... :lol: And how about those asbestos claims in the other story, did they get paid by someone else too?




    But Peter Buscemi, a lawyer at Morgan, Lewis & Bockius, who represented the retirees, questioned Warren’s argument that retirees wouldn’t be affected by the decision.

    “That’s what the people who didn’t want to pay always wanted to say. They wanted to say someone else will pay and the benefits won’t be in jeopardy,” he said. “But if one employer doesn’t pay then another and then another, then who knows what will happen?”

    Buscemi said even though Warren was helping LTV Steel, she was just doing her job and “acting like a lawyer.”

    The disclosure of Warren’s involvement with the controversial steel company plan could damage her image as a champion for the working class and health coverage for all. She has repeatedly attacked her Republican opponent, U.S. Sen. Scott Brown, for trying to repeal Obama-care.

    Warren’s work for LTV did not keep her from slamming the company 11 years later. In a 2006 PBS interview, she upbraided LTV for treating employees “like paper towels. You use them and you throw them away.”

    Warren did not mention in the interview she was a paid lawyer for LTV.
