Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) is criticizing Republicans for failing to compromise on another coronavirus relief package.
During her appearance on “The View,” co-host Sara Haines asked Warren what the odds of striking a deal before the November election are and whether Democrats take any responsibility for failing to deliver aid to the American people sooner.
“The Democrats have had a plan on the table since May to be able to address all of this, a plan that we’ve laid out there and said please, come, negotiate. Let’s make this happen,” Warren said.
She added, “Let’s take care of all our people who need help and the Republican response has been, ‘No, no, no, no, and no.’ We’ve tried altering parts of it. We’ve tried offering less, but we just can’t get it going.”

She slammed Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for not being willing to make a deal.
“I don’t understand how these people can look around and see the suffering in this country, see the needs, see the importance, and not be willing to act. I don’t get it,” Warren said.
Trump said he does not believe Democrats “will be willing to do what is right for our great American workers, or our wonderful USA itself, on Stimulus.”
Pelosi’s deputy chief of staff, Drew Hammill, said in a tweet her 48-minute conversation with Mnuchin “brings us closer to being able to put pen to paper to write legislation.”
According to a senior Republican aide, McConnell does not want to bring a large coronavirus aid bill to the Senate floor for a vote before the election because he is focused on confirming Judge Amy Coney Barrett.
