VIDEO: Ending Gridlock in Washington is Top Priority for Senator-Elect Warren
Senator-elect Elizabeth Warren told supporters and Framingham voters one of her first priorities when she goes to Washington D.C. is to end the gridlock.
Senator-elect Elizabeth Warren told supporters and Framingham voters one of her first priorities when she goes to Washington D.C. is to end the gridlock, starting with eliminating the filibuster rule.
"The U.S. Senate has become gridlocked," said Warren.
She told an audience of more than 100 supporters and Framingham voters there is no jobs act, no dream act and now equal pay for equal work because of the filibuster rule.
The filibuster rule allows one member of the U.S. Senate to delay a vote. Democrats have argued it has been used far too often by Republicans - more than 350 times since President Obama was elected.
Warren came to Framingham Saurday as part of her "Starting With People" Tour to thank supporters.
The event ended with the Framingham High School a cappella group Syncopated serenading Warren.
Afterwards, the senator-elect shook hands with everyone and posed for photographs.
