Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., warned Sunday that “elections are going to lose” in the elections if they don’t deliver on key progressive issues in the coming months, such as student loan debt cancellation.
During an appearance on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Warren reacted to remarks joe-biden” target=”_blank”>President Biden< that he is focused on touting his accomplishments ahead of the elections, saying, “But I admit to you, what I haven’t done — and the reason I’m getting out on the road again instead of dealing with the day-to-day emergencies in my office — is making the case of what we’ve done.”

On CNN, Warren pushed back against economists who argue big government spending, like Biden’s $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan Act, contributed to the current inflation crisis, which rose 8.5% last month.
“When someone says too big, I hope that they go talk to the millions of small business owners whose businesses were saved because we actually put money into a rescue plan,” she said. “I also hope they will talk to the millions of people who have gotten vaccinations and who have gotten free testing, because that’s how we bring COVID under control so that businesses can be open so that this economy can move forward.”
