Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) predicted a doomsday scenario for Democrats in the upcoming midterm elections and urged her fellow lawmakers to double down on the progressive priorities to salvage any seats possible come November.
“Democrats are going to lose,” Warren told co-anchor Dana Bash on CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday.
She believed the Democrats’ record spoke for itself but that they needed to up the ante and accomplish more of their agenda if they had any hope of winning in November.
“I am very glad to talk about what we’ve done, obviously, and I think the president deserves real credit. But it’s not enough,” Warren argued.
“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. And that means making government work for them,” the progressive senator said.
“There is so much we can do, and if we do it over the next 200 days we’re gonna be in fine shape,” the 72-year-old senator claimed. “This is what democracy is about. Take it to the people what we’ve done, but we need to get the work done.”
“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 asserted.
Some thought her radical left-wing ideas like canceling student debt and limiting what companies can charge for their products would have the opposite effect on voters.
Go further left? Trying to lose even worse?

Problem is they have “delivered” too much already.

They’ll lose if they continue to push batshit-crazy left ideas.

She also noted that President Joe Biden’s administration was “putting plans in place” for amnesty at the southern border.
“Title 42 is not consistent with our values, and it doesn’t keep us safer. The Biden administration is putting plans in place to deal with people who are asking for amnesty and humanitarian relief at the border.
“But keep in mind, we need comprehensive immigration reform. And that’s something all the democrats are on board for. We have to work out the details, we still need to be in that fight,” she said. “That’s where we still need to make significant change.”

Warren also espoused her ideas to help Democrats “avoid a disaster” in November in an opinion piece for the New York Times published last week.
“To put it bluntly: if we fail to use the months remaining before the elections to deliver on more of our agenda,” Warren wrote. “Democrats are headed toward big losses in the midterms.”
The “agenda” included a strong push to “root out corruption” in government, stop alleged price gauging and cancel student debt, and argued that it’s “a big legislative agenda, but it isn’t big enough.”
“Democrats need to deliver more of the president’s agenda — or else we will not be in the majority much longer,” Warren concluded.
