Elizabeth Warren Warns Republicans: ‘This Has To Stop’ [Video]

Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) continued her campaign to pressure Republicans to extend unemployment benefits on Wednesday, blasting Republicans for “playing political games,” and warning that “this has to stop” during an appearance on MSNBC’s NOW with Alex Wagner.

“This is the moment when we really have to start fighting back and showing the Republicans it’s not going to work just to continue to obstruct, obstruct, obstruct,” Warren said.

“You’re willing to do this over politics?” she rhetorically asked congressional Republicans. “You’re really willing to cut these people off, to leave them with no money to put food on the table, to put a roof over their heads, to take care of their children?”

The Massachusetts senator also issued a warning to the GOP about continuing to hold struggling Americans hostage. “This is about America saying to the Republican Party, you can’t keep blocking everything that moves this country forward,” Warren said. “This has to stop.”
