Early marriage and motherhood seemed to put even that dream out of reach, but fifteen years later she was a distinguished law professor with a deep understanding of why people go bankrupt. Then came the phone call that changed her life: could she come to Washington DC to help advise Congress on rewriting the bankruptcy laws? Thus began an impolite education into the bare-knuckled, often dysfunctional ways of Washington. She fought for better bankruptcy laws for ten years and lost. She tried to hold the federal government accountable during the financial crisis but became a target of the big banks. She came up with the idea for a new agency designed to protect consumers from predatory bankers and was denied the opportunity to run it. Finally, at age 62, she decided to run for elective office and won the most competitive-and watched-Senate race in the country. In this passionate, funny, rabble-rousing audiobook, Warren shows why she has chosen to fight tooth and nail for the middle class-and why she has become a hero to all those who believe that America's government can and must do better for working families., Includes bibliographical references (pages 279-336) and index., Legislators, MOM9936859BT0013541888L41569000000ACPL33021026245990, MWT11822264, Made available through hoopla, Midwestrda, Mode of access: World Wide Web., New York :Metropolitan Books, Henry Holt and Company,2014, New York, NY :Macmillan Audio,[2014], POLITICAL SCIENCE / American Government / Legislative Branch, Read by the author., Title from container., Unabridged., United States, United States.Congress.Senate, Warren, Elizabeth,author,narrator., Warren, Elizabeth., Women legislators, [United States]:Macmillan Audio ,2014., audio, audio disc, audio fileCD audio, bl2014015077, computerc, data file, digital, eAudiobook hoopla, hoopla digital., https://d2snwnmzyr8jue.cloudfront.net/mcm_9781427239174_180.jpeg, n-us---, online resourcecr, pcc, spoken word, spoken wordspw, text, unmediated, volume
