Tone-Deaf
"We've got less than 200 days until the election and American families are hurting," Warren said. "We can, for example, stop the price gouging. Let's authorize the FTC to investigate and prosecute on price gouging. That will help bring down prices. Let's attack the corruption in Washington head on, so that we're actually saying members of Congress can't trade in stocks. Let's cancel student loan debt. The president has the power to do that all by himself and would touch the lives of tens of...

Liz Warren just realized that democrats are in for a terrible beating in November. Have you ever met a student supposedly preparing for a major exam in 2 months and then began studying the night before?

That would be some of the democrats. The far left which controls the party has had it all their own way for 14 months and the nation is suffering from 8.5% inflation, open borders, rampant crime and fierce division.

Recently Liz Warren saw the numbers and wrote an op-ed in the disreputable New York Times.

nytimes.com/2022/04/18/opinion/elizabeth-warren-democrats-biden-midterms.html

In the op-ed, she warns that democrats are heading for "big losses in the midterms" if they do not push through more of the president’s agenda, including finalizing a budget reconciliation deal that raises taxes on businesses to fund "vital investments in combating climate change and lowering costs for families." In other words she wants to double down on what Biden was instructed to do for the past 14 months! As if the American people haven't had enough. That's not the end of the so called democrat strategy. Marc Elias is out there trying make the midterms as chaotic as the 2020 election was. Obama's wingman, Eric Holder has dedicated himself to thwart Republican redistricting in Republican states. 

The highlight of the woke insanity was when Warren was on CNN and tried to contradict economists who correctly fixed blame on big government spending, like Biden’s $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan Act for the rising inflation. One thing is for certain: inflation will not be tamed by November.

Please list all the "beatings" you seem to believe Democrats have suffered.  Details if any would be swell!

And the "beating" in November will be at the ballot box. Remember how safe elections were proven to be in 2020! 

And sadly for progressives, your leader has no plans to stop it from happening, and some nutcases in his party are clamoring for him to do even more things to ensure the "beating" is fierce!

She was on Face the Nation this past Sunday and basically said all the same things postulating that the Democrats stood a good chance of maintaining the House in November, all they need to do is pass some of what they promised.  It was actually sad watching, she would not answer questions but continued to pivot to her talking points which didn't answer any questions.  And the Host continued to let her off the hook, even after asking the same question three times.  If they are not going to hold a politician to an answer then they should really just fold up shop and stop all transmissions.

I wonder why some Democrats are working so hard to make it seem as though the Biden economy isn't as rosy as we have been led to believe.

Seems weird to want to spend billions or even trillions more when things are going so swimmingly well right now with low unemployment rates, rising wages and secure in the knowledge that the Putin price increase, just like the rise in inflation rates, are merely temporary.

who correctly fixed blame on big government spending, like Biden’s $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan Act for the rising inflation.
.

Coronavirus Preparedness and Response Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2020

Provided $8.3 billion to fight the spread of COVID-19 in the United States by funding vaccine and testing development.

Families First Coronavirus Response Act

Became law March 18, 2020.

The $225 billion legislation provided COVID-19 testing funds, paid sick leave, and food assistance funding.

CARES Act

The $2.2 trillion bill included $1,200 stimulus checks, enhanced unemployment benefits, created the Paycheck Protection Program small business forgiveness loan program, aid for state and local governments, and aid for corporations.

Paycheck Protection Program and Health Care Enhancement Act

Became law April 24, 2020

At $483 billion , the measure authorized more funding for the Paycheck Protection Program and funding for COVID-19 testing.

Shouldn't that be, like trump for rising inflation then?

Awe, how cute- forgetting all the unfunded debt the Democrats tacked on when Biden took office. Also, remember Pelosi saying they couldn't pass another Covid stimulus until after the elections? Democrats own that shit.

The House approved President Biden’s $1.9 trillion stimulus plan early Saturday and sent it to the Senate, as Democrats defied united GOP opposition to advance the massive relief package aimed at stabilizing the economy and boosting coronavirus vaccinations and testing.

The legislation, Biden’s first major agenda item, passed 219-212. Republicans unanimously opposed the bill, a strikingly partisan outcome just a month after the new president was inaugurated with calls for bipartisanship and unity. All but two Democrats voted in favor.

But, Trruuummmmppppp!!!!!!! The battle cry of the truly pathetic.

Yes, you are and continue to be pathetic.

I addressed 1 of the major ones that occurred under Trump. Seems you can't handle Pelosi having the reins of power and using them. She and Democrats had complete control of Congress. They didn't have to pass anything; but they did it because Brandon won the election- and they were trying to give him a boost coming into office.

Congress controls the "power of the purse"; or is that only when a Democrat is in the White House and Republicans control Congress?

Brandon and the Democrats are to blame for this rampant inflation; period.

Deflecting to Trump shows just how ballless the left has become! Embrace the suck; you elected it!

What kind of economics vs. supply side would you like to see?

And have you ever seen any candidates win running on ending it, or have you ever seen anyone try to change it?

I guess [deleted] doesn't realize that the president's agenda is the reason for the Democrats failures.  To bad that that the Democrats agenda can't be attributed to the Presidents failure.  He was failing before being put in office.  The left is just can't seem to see that part.

One thing is for certain: inflation will not be tamed by November.

Just remember, the inflation was Trump's fault.  Then it was transitory.  Then it was supposed to be good.  Is it still Putin's fault or was there another bullshit excuse blurted out by the DPOTUS?

Jeremy - point of reference please - Trump made a big "doo" 'bout calling her Pocahontas and the tribes/nations were offended for his attempted "slanderous" humor.  Many of us still get ticked when Pocahontas' name is used in reference or conjunction to Warren's name.

As a favor to me and other NA's on NT - could you not put the two names, collectively, within any dual reference?

Thanks.

Warren is a failure as a politician, but is successful as an activist against money monopolies (even though she is beginning to become one).  Somehow, she needs to shut down on both sides.

Name calling has never impressed me as a strong sign of a good argument. It doesn't matter if it was this one, or Trumpy or Sleepy Biden or any of them...   IMO they are a weakness revealed and should be avoided.
