[SOT/](elizabeth warren/(D) U.S. Senate hopeful)"Americans are fighters. We are tough, resourceful and creative. If we have the chance to fight on a level playing field-where everyone pays a fair share and everyone has a real shot-then no one can stop us. President Obama gets it because he's spent his life fighting for the middle class. And now he's fighting to level that playing field-because we know that the economy doesn't grow from the top down, but from the middle class out and the bottom up. That's how we create jobs and reduce the debt. And Mitt Romney? He wants to give tax cuts to millionaires and billionaires. But for middle-class families who are hanging on by their fingernails? His plans will hammer them with a new tax hike of up to 2,000 dollars. Mitt Romney wants to give billions in breaks to big corporations-but he and Paul Ryan would pulverize financial reform, voucher-ize Medicare, and vaporize Obamacare. The Republican vision is clear: "I've got mine, the rest of you are on your own." Republicans say they don't believe in government. Sure they do. They believe in government to help themselves and their powerful friends. After all, Mitt Romney's the guy who said corporations are people. No, Governor Romney, corporations are not people. People have hearts, they have kids, they get jobs, they get sick, they cry, they dance. They live, they love, and they die. And that matters. That matters because we don't run this country for corporations, we run it for people. And that's why we need Barack Obama."(****END****) VIDEO PRODUCER: angie---------------------------VIDEO SOURCE: pool-----------------------VIDEO APPROVAL: yes ----------------------------VIDEO RESTRICTIONS: none ----------------------------------MARKET EMBARGO (S): none --------------------------------SCRIPT/WIRE SOURCE: cvn elizabeth warren
