Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) is calling it quits on President Biden’s platform of unity and returning to normal by giving up on working towards bipartisan legislation.
On Saturday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Cross Connection,” Warren said, “Mitch McConnell is still digging in … There’s going to come a point that either he’s going to step up and join us, or we’re going to call his bluff. Me, I’m already at that point. We’ve got to get others on board too, though.”
Warren was referring to an impending fight over coronavirus relief as Republicans and Democrats have split over how exactly to handle the issue.
Warren continued saying, “I think Democrats are in the right place. They’re trying to keep the door open to get Republicans onto the bus as well. But if Republicans aren’t going to come, we’re not going to spend much more time on this. It’s time to move now.”
While Biden talks about returning politics to normal and reaching across the aisle, Warren is openly punting the idea of bipartisanship and setting a “my way or the highway” ultimatum.
Bipartisanship is something that Democrats have never truly believed in, and Senator Warren’s statement is further evidence of that fact. The next four years will likely be extremely unproductive, with Democrats refusing to work with Republicans.
