(CNSNews.com) - Democrats are just as responsible as President Biden is for the malaise gripping Americans, and "the American people know it," Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) told Fox News on Thursday in his inimitable folksy way.
Kennedy made a pitch for discontented Americans to vote: "Take a friend with you and go vote. As I've said before, if dead people can do it, so can you!" he said.
"I'm not going to try to bubble wrap it. The American people know that something is wrong in our country," Kennedy told Sean Hannity:
"I could talk about crime and the open border and Afghanistan and the economy and inflation. But something more fundamental is wrong in our country.
“And it is this: President Biden's policies have tainted, almost defiled the American dream. Under President Biden's policies, it's harder than ever to get ahead in our country. And It's easier than ever to do nothing.
“Under President Biden's policies, we have too many undeserving people at the top giving bailouts. And we've got too many undeserving people at the bottom getting handouts. And The people in the middle get the bill. They can't afford it anymore.
"But this can be fixed. The American people don't have to put up with this. They don't have to wait until a honey bun costs twenty bucks to do something. In 19 days we have mid-term elections. Vote. Vote. Take a friend with you, and go vote. As I've said before, if dead people can do it, so can you!"
