She says she can do it her first day in the White House and without Congress... The U.S. Senator from Massachusetts said she would be able to help about 42 million people with their student debt by using the Department of Education's pre-existing authority, which she says gives the Secretary of Education the power to wipe away loans on its discretion.

Warren has made affordable college a center piece to her campaign as a way to reduce economic inequality..

Young people don't start their own businesses" On Tuesday night, Warren will be one of six candidates to take the stage in the final Democratic debate before the Iowa caucuses in early February… National opinion polls show Warren in the top tier but trailing former Vice President Joe Biden and fellow U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders as 12 Democrats remain vying to take on Trump in November…
