Sen. Klobuchar pleads with voters: If Dems don’t win midterms, GOP will crash the economy

Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., advocated for voters to vote Democrat in the midterm elections so Republicans don’t have a chance to crash the economy and threaten democracy.

During ABC’s “The View” on Friday, the senator and former Democratic presidential nominee used Britain’s Prime Minister Liz Truss – who resigned yesterday – to illustrate her point by claiming the tax cuts Truss wanted to push through her country, leading to a political conflict led to turmoil are part of the same policies that the GOP intends to implement in the United States.

Lawmakers also claimed it was necessary to vote the Democrat to “bed” the “shadow” that former President Donald Trump has cast on American democracy.

Co-host Sara Haines backed up Klobuchar’s point by asking why some Democratic candidates refuse to debate with their Republican opponents. Klobuchar admitted she supports and believes in the debate, but acknowledged that the divisive political environment she perceives was caused by Trump.

She said: “Well, first of all, I believe in debate. I always argue with everyone. I believe in that, but I also believe that we live in a moment where Donald Trump’s shadow is a huge shadow on our democracy. “

She added, “The verdict against Steve Bannon is a big deal,” referring to how the former Trump strategist has just been sentenced to four months in prison for violating a Jan. 6 subpoena from the committee.

Continuing with Bannon, Klobuchar said, “Because he was literally able to shed light on exactly what was going on and the whole plan of disrespecting this democracy.”

In general, she claimed, “One of the reasons this election is so important is that we have to put it to bed. We must believe in our democracy. We can have disagreements, but courage isn’t just standing up for yourself and shouting about something.”

She proclaimed, “Courage is whether you are willing to stand alongside someone you don’t always agree with for the betterment of this country.”

Klobuchar added: “And that’s what I’m looking forward to doing again after this election.”

She then pointed to the UK as a warning of what the GOP would do here. “If you just look at what happened in Britain when Liz Truss went under. She went under for proposing some insane tax cuts for the rich that pumped up her entire market.”

“We can’t do this now,” the senator pleaded, and co-host Joy Behar echoed, saying, “You will do this. Republicans will do that.”

Closing her midterms pitch, Klobuchar said, “We are in a moment where we need to field candidates who are solid and who have the back of the American people. So vote Democrats.”
