Elizabeth Warren to Republicans: ‘Are You Kidding Me? We Have People Out There Who Are Suffering’The Senate failed to pass a jobless insurance extension Tuesday thanks to Republican obstruction, but Sen. Elizabeth Warren believes the time is still ripe to start fighting back.
The Senate failed to pass a jobless insurance extension Tuesday thanks to Republican obstruction, but Sen. Elizabeth Warren believes the time is still ripe to start fighting back. The Massachusetts Democrat explains how Republican senators kept making excuses to restrict the unemployment measure from passing, despite many efforts on the Democrats’ part to meet their requests. But according to Warren, this isn’t just a senatorial battle: It’s America’s fight and it’s time for the whole country to tell the GOP, “You can’t keep blocking everything that moves this country forward.”
