Massachusetts Democrat Sen. Elizabeth Warren is sounding the alarm for her Party as the midterm elections approach.
She spoke to CNN on Sunday and said that her Party is going to lose in the midterms if they do not get more done for the citizens.
“Yeah, I think we’re going to be in real trouble if we don’t get up and deliver, then I believe that Democrats are going to lose. Democrats win when they do what, when they work on behalf of working people, and we can’t just rest on what we’ve already done. We need to be fighting going forward,” she said.
“I am glad to talk about what we’ve done, obviously, and I think the president deserves real credit, but it’s not enough. We’ve got less than 200 days until the election and American families are hurting. Our job, while we are here in the majority, is to deliver on behalf of those families,” she said.
“We can’t just rest on what we’ve already done,” the senator said. “We need to be fighting going forward. There are things that the American people elected us to do and we still need to get out there and do them.”
She did say there was a way for Democrats to win and gave her plan.
“We do that then we’re going to be fine in the election. That’s how democracy works, especially when we’re up against a party that just wants to fight culture wars. That’s not gonna help people in their lives,” the senator said.
“Our job as Democrats is to help hard working Americans, and we can do that. We can make government work not just for the billionaires, not just for the giant corporations. We can actually make it work for everyone but we need to get up and do it,” she said.
She said that she believes inflation is the biggest obstacle to having Democrats keep control of Congress.
“Families are paying more at the pump, they’re paying more when they go to the grocery store, they’re paying more when they try to buy a hamburger,” the senator said. “So it’s the responsibility of Congress, of the president, to get out there and make the changes we need to make to bring down those prices for families.
“We can do that. We have the tools, but we’ve got to get up off our rear ends and make it happen. Take it to the people what we’ve [already] done, but we need to get the work done,” she said.
