"Coming out of the Great Depression, our country was at a crossroads. We made the decision together to invest in ourselves, in our kids, and in our future – and for nearly 50 years, it worked. And then in the 1980s, our country moved in another direction, and we found ourselves living in a very different world – one where the rich just got richer, and everyone else was left behind. No one spoke more powerfully about what was happening to America’s struggling middle class than Governor Mario Cuomo. We will miss his voice, we will miss his heart, and we will miss his passionate fight for working families."
Senator Elizabeth Warren
