Liz Warren ‘frustrated’ by Dem failure, urges party to act fast on legislation to avoid midterm ‘disaster’

With Democrat policies failing in measurable ways and President Joe Biden’s administration’s efforts to scapegoat proving fruitless, one progressive senator suggested “time is running short” to address the next looming crisis: voter backlash.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) penned an op-ed for The New York Times Monday titled “Elizabeth Warren: Democrats Can Avoid Disaster in November.” Within the essay, the lawmaker ignored the main tenant of representative government with cries to ram legislation through the deadlocked Senate before voters could weigh in on how they really feel about skyrocketing inflation and government overreach.

“Time is running short,” Warren warned. “We need to finalize a budget reconciliation deal, making giant corporations pay their share to fund vital investments in combating climate change and lowering costs for families, which can advance with only 50 Senate votes.”

Highlighting that her focus was maintaining power rather than addressing the actual concerns of Americans, Warren wrote, “Democrats win elections when we show we understand the painful economic realities facing American families and convince voters we will deliver meaningful change.”

“To put it bluntly: if we fail to use the months remaining before the elections to deliver on more of our agenda, Democrats are headed toward big losses in the midterms,” she went on, doubling down on emphasizing her true priority.

Warren’s total lack of self-awareness continued with her claiming the progressive Democratic agenda, which she has whole-heartedly embraced, has bipartisan support among voters. “Like many Americans, I’m frustrated by our failure to get things done – things that are both badly needed and very popular with all Americans.”

If that were indeed the case, the senator would have no reason to caution against Republicans framing “the upcoming elections to be about ‘wokeness,’ cancel culture and the ‘militant left wing,'” as she put it without refuting any of those arguments from her opposition.

Instead, she offered unfounded accusations writing, “While Republican politicians obstruct many efforts to improve people’s lives and many swear loyalty to the Big Lie, the urgency of the next election bears down on us.”

Perhaps the only substantive point that Warren offered was that the “vast majority of voters support banning” elected officials and their spouses from owning or trading stocks while they can impact policies to benefit their portfolios.

Citing a Trafalgar Group poll conducted between December 17 and December 21, 2021, nearly 76 percent of respondents said members of Congress had an unfair advantage if they were permitted to trade stocks. That included almost 70 percent of Democrat voters and almost 80 percent of Republican voters.

However, this too was likely more about swaying the control of power in her favor as Warren took a shot at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) who, with a net worth estimated to be around $100 million, has openly opposed such a ban, “Because this is a free market and people – we’re a free-market economy, they should be able to participate.”

Taking on Pelosi so directly further cements Warren’s alignment with progressive lawmakers like the Squad comprised, in part, of Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN) who push “combating climate change” ahead of Americans’ concerns to support their families and better their lives.

As one person attempted to sum up the “accomplishments” with a split Senate, it’s clear why Warren is worried about how much worse things will get before November.
