Senator Elizabeth Warren is pushing radical reforms as part of her early presidential pitch. During a speech in New Hampshire Saturday, Warren outlined her platform and called for “systemic changes” in the federal government.

She also promoted reforms to benefit the lower and middle class at the expense of — what she called — “the wealthy and well-connected.” This comes after Warren repeatedly hinted at her intent to run for president in 2020.

The Democrat lawmaker also said she has an “affirmative vision” for America.

“I’m willing to fight, everybody knows that — the question is: How do we build an America that works, not just for those at the top, but an America that works for everyone else?” she asked. “I talked serious policy here in New Hampshire, and that’s what I’m gonna keep on doing.”

Warren also expressed support for universal health care, a higher minimum wage, and a relief to student debt.
