Washington, D.C – Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) teamed up with Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) this week, rolling out the Middle Class Prosperity Project, an effort aimed at brainstorming and identifying solutions to socio-economic issues plaguing America’s middle class.
“America’s middle class are working harder, but millions of people are squeezed to the breaking point,” said Warren.
Introduced earlier this week in the first of a series of Middle Class Prosperity forums, Warren’s opening statements trounced Republican pretentious pecuniary policies.
Recently Republicans seemed to have discovered the struggles of America’s middle class. Out of nowhere they’re suddenly talking about this problem.” ~ Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Member Sub-committee on Economic Policy
Calling upon Congress, in particular the GOP majority Warren lobbied for her colleagues to enact and act upon economic policy beneficial to America’s workers, doing away with partisan politics and maneuvering aimed at pacifying corporate lobbyists and shoring up billionaire coffers.
Taking a man on the street approach and focusing on real people with real problems, Cummings shot down any Republican attempts to turn poverty and strife to fanciful liberal illusion.
“The issue of middle class prosperity is not academic or theoretical – it is real and personal for me and millions of families across the country,” said Cummings.
A dollar sign reminder was sent to Congress that the middle class, whose majority fueled the economy and functioned as not only as the foundation, but framework of American Providence, served as both producers and consumers of the nation’s work product.
“Let’s be clear,” said Cummings. “The goal of this project is not just to talk. It is to identify and implement solutions.”
The project and forums follow a consistent message of working class advocacy adopted by the pair – a practical no-nonsense get-to-work approach to putting America’s profits back in the pockets of the American people.
