BOSTON (24/7 NewsSource/WBZ-AM) -- Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren is proposing reforms that she says would change the way Washington does business and restore the public's faith in democracy.
"Our national crisis of faith in government boils down to this simple fact: People don't trust their government to do right because they think government works for the rich, the powerful, and the well-connected, and not for the American people," she said. "And here's the kicker--they're right."
She says the goal is to take power away from the wealthy, the powerful and the well-connected and put it back in the hands of the American people. Warren's proposal includes tightening rules on lobbying, strengthening enforcement of anti-corruption, ethics and public integrity laws, increasing transparency in government and fixing federal open records laws.
