Biden, Warren close by talking about how to make change
The evening ended with closing statements from Warren and Biden. Warren talked about gun violence, which wasn’t addressed tonight. On that issue, like so many others, Americans agree on what should happen and leaders know what to do, she said. The reason action isn’t taken, Warren said, is corruption. The government works “better for big drug companies than it does for people trying to fill a prescription,” she said. Then she touted her anti-corruption plan and her willingness to advocate for major systemic change.
Biden followed by bringing up Obama, this time in the context of the corruption Warren referenced. “I hope we weren’t talking about Barack Obama and his spotless administration,” he said. He ended with his usual “pick-your-head-up,” optimistic refrain.
“It’s time to remember who you are. Get up. Let’s take back this country and lead the world again,” Biden said, before raising his voice for his conclusion. “It’s within our power to do, get up and take it back.”
