Elizabeth Warren: The GOP’s ‘Political Games’ Over Unemployment Benefits Must Stop
‘This Has to Stop’: Elizabeth Warren Delivers Fiery Message on GOP’s ‘Political Games’ (Mediaite)
Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) appeared at the top of Wednesday’s Now with Alex Wagner, sounding more and more like she’s running for something as she castigated the Republican Party’s “political games” in the face of legislation like the unemployment benefits extension that has failed to move its way through the Senate. “This is the moment when we really have to start fighting back and showing the Republicans it’s not going to work just to continue obstruct, obstruct, obstruct,” a fired-up Warren told host Alex Wagner.
Warren described a feeling of “frustration” and “really just a sense of being appalled” among her fellow Senate Democrats. “You’re willing to do this over politics?” she asked Republicans. “You’re really willing to cut these people off, to leave them with no money to put food on the table, to put a roof over their heads, to take care of their children?”
“The Republicans are so caught in in playing political games at every single turn,” she continued. “This is about America saying to the Republican Party, you can’t keep blocking everything that moves this country forward. This has to stop.”
