Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) blamed Republicans for the Democratic Party’s inability to pass legislation while they were in the majority during an interview on MSNBC on Tuesday.
MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle asked Warren why income inequality failed to get significantly better in the last eight years under Democratic rule.
Warren dodged the question blaming billionaires and bankers for creating the policies that are coming out of Washington because they can hire armies of lobbyist and lawyers.
Ruhle interrupted Warren during her dodge to point out that the Democratic Party was in power for the last eight years, and if income inequality was such a big issue to Democrats, why was nothing done about it?
“Let’s be clear about what it means to be in power. The Republicans had a blocking position. When they didn’t have a blocking position, we got the Affordable Care Act through, and when they didn’t have a blocking position, we got through the Wall Street reforms,” Warren said.
The Massachusetts senator went on to blame Republican majorities in the House and Senate for the Democratic Party’s inability to pass significant legislation to deal with income inequality.
