Teasing out the knots. Connecting up the dots: Sen. Warren on the government shutdown

Sometimes it seems that contemporary American politics and the sometimes upside-down policies of our dysfunctional Congress are so entangled and opaque that it’s impossible to sort out what’s true and what’s false.

Thankfully, there are a few people on the national scene that have the right combination of communication skills, brain power, and moxie to come to our aid and ease our troubled minds.  One of those people is Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren.

In the video below Senator Warren rides to the rescue and demonstrates how to tease out the knots and connect up the dots. Listen—and listen well—to her description of her “state of disbelief” and her clear-eyed explanation about how Republicans took us all hostage with their delusional shutdown of our federal government.
