Ex-Trump lawyer Michael Cohen is urging Democrats to “advance their agenda” fast as inflation raises doubts about their ability to retain control of both chambers of Congress as the midterm elections near.
Cohen wrote an op-ed piece for MSNBC News in which he urged Democrats to do something to retain the support of their constituents. As inflation continues to take its toll, it appears that increasing interest rates are only going to become worse before they get better.
To quote Jerome Powell from last month, the Federal Reserve will “up its benchmark rate by a quarter point,” according to the New York Times. In an effort to “rein in inflation, which is at a 40-year high,” the decision was made.
Despite Powell’s belief that this will alleviate the effects of inflation, American workers are bearing the brunt of it, and Cohen is underlining the domino effect that comes with it. He thinks there is just one way for the Democrats to get things done.
“The Democratic Party’s only realistic choice in the current political climate is to pass its program. Aside from any potential advantages in terms of politics, the most crucial reason to support this initiative is that it is morally correct. Indeed, it was for this reason that they were elected in November 2020 by the people.”
In spite of this, he urged that they should focus on adopting important laws to minimize the negative economic effects of inflation. Even with Manchin and Sinema acting as “congressional sticks in the mud,” Cohen observed, “passing Biden’s agenda is easier said than done.” “Democratic leaders need to focus on passing any bill the two senators are willing to support at this point. It’s their only hope of getting anything done by the end of the year.”
G. Elliott Morris, a statistics journalist for The Economist, was one of the people Cohen met with, according to Cohen. “There are a lot of predicted markers of how the midterm elections will go—some of them extremely accurate—and none of them are favorable for Democrats,” Morris said.
His piece also stated why it is critical for Democratic MPs to stand up for their agenda and fight to pass laws that would benefit the American people.
By recalling why they went for office and were elected in the first place: to get things done, Democrats can assist themselves,” he said. The ultimate goal of any elected figure is to get re-elected, and this is the nature of politics.
He went on to say, “However, Democrats, in contrast to Republicans, genuinely believe in the government’s ability to assist the American people. Why should we vote for Democrats if they aren’t enacting legislation to cut drug prices, improve health care, rescue the earth from climate change, bring families out of poverty, or aid the middle class?”
In spite of this, however, he also pointed out that it may not have much impact on the grim midterm projects. A progressive policy platform won’t save the party in November, but sometimes there are more important factors than merely a reelection campaign.
