Publisher's Summary

This program is read by the author.
The fiery U.S. Senator from Massachusetts and bestselling author offers a passionate, inspiring audiobook about why our middle class is under siege and how we can win the fight to save it.
Senator Elizabeth Warren has long been an outspoken champion of America’s middle class, and by the time the people of Massachusetts elected her in 2012, she had become one of the country’s leading progressive voices. Now, at a perilous moment for our nation, she has written an illuminating account of how we built the strongest middle class in history, a scathing indictment of those who have spent the past thirty-five years undermining working families, and a rousing call to action.
Warren grew up in Oklahoma, and she’s never forgotten how difficult it was for her mother and father to hold on at the ragged edge of the middle class. An educational system that offered opportunities for all made it possible for her to achieve her dream of going to college, becoming a teacher, and, later, attending law school. But now, for many, these kinds of opportunities are gone, and a government that once looked out for working families is instead captive to the rich and powerful. Seventy-five years ago, President Franklin Roosevelt and his New Deal ushered in an age of widespread prosperity; in the 1980s, President Ronald Reagan reversed course and sold the country on the disastrous fiction called trickle-down economics. Now, with the election of Donald Trump--a con artist who promised to drain the swamp of special interests and then surrounded himself with billionaires and lobbyists--the middle class is being pushed ever closer to collapse.
Written in the candid, high-spirited voice that is Warren’s trademark, This Fight Is Our Fight tells eye-opening stories about her battles in the Senate and vividly describes the experiences of hard-working Americans who have too often been given the short end of the stick. Elizabeth Warren has had enough of phony promises and a government that no longer serves its people--she won’t sit down, she won’t be silenced, and she will fight back.

Most Helpful

Another caustic, hateful, humorless diatribe by a democrat that learned nothing from the 2016 disaster

"I cling to the belief that a majority of Americans do not want to see us torn apart by attacks on one another."

Elizabeth Warren says this after spending the entire book attacking the republicans personally and participating in the kind of partisan rhetoric and hatefulness that Hillary showed. If Warren does not separate herself from the same viciousness and caustic nature that cost the election last time, we are going to have 4 more years of this buffoon.

You tell 'em, Betsy!

Elizabeth Warren shows us many insights into the power behind what goes on in Washington DC. I wish there were more steps to take to overcome this past election, but I have a greater understanding of what went on because of this book.
