Why I Like Both Elizabeth Warren AND Paul Ryan

Featured BlogHer Network Post

[Editor's Note: We are a nation built on individual principles and choices. That's why I love it when Anne at Public Policy Blogger voiced her support of Massachusetts senatorial candidate (and United States Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Special Advisor) Elizabeth Warren, a Democrat, as well as Republican Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan -- and shared video to show how they're "not-so-strange bedfellows." -- Julie]

Not in the same political party. Not in agreement on everything. But both believe in the American people who get up every day to provide for their families and communities. I tend toward the Democratic side, but I listen to and will support members of either party who seek practical solutions to our social and economic problems. And are courageous, tenacious, open-minded and principled.
