Warren And Cummings Introduce The "Middle Class Prosperity Project"

While many are pushing Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) to run for president in 2016, she really wants to focus on reminding the GOP-controlled Congress to keep their eyes and hearts on the middle class. She shares that fighting over issues such as the Keystone pipeline and funding for the Department of Homeland Security does not help the middle class.

Both Warren and Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) appeared on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" to talk about their "Middle Class Prosperity Project." Warren shared that the recovering economy mainly shows "that rich people are doing well," while "the middle class is still just getting hammered."

Warren expanded upon her point by saying, "And what is this Congress doing? In the United States Senate, the Republicans are now in charge and what have they spent their time on? First, they wanted to spend weeks on a pipeline that would principally benefit some foreign oil company, and now they want to spend a month on shutting down Homeland Security at a time when we face terrorist threats. So what we're trying to do is get some focus on what's happening to America's working people, what's happening to the middle class, and to remind people: middle class is in trouble because of deliberate policy choices made in Washington. That means we can make changes here in Washington, and that's what we want to draw some attention to and that's what we want to focus on."

Mika Brzeziniski, host of "Morning Joe" asked Warren about her 2016 plans, to which she replied, "You know, I don't think this is about me. I think this is really about this set of issues, and what I want to do is to talk as hard, and as long, and as loud as I need too to get people galvanized around change."
