Ahead of an expected Senate vote late Thursday on a GOP budget resolution that will pave the way for Republicans to ram through massive tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) released a video explaining why the budget is "garbage" and how it would inflict "a lot of damage" on the working class.

"A lot of people think a budget is about numbers. It's not. It's really about values," Warren said. "The Republican budget tells us a lot about Republican values."

Watch:

The GOP appears to have enough votes to pass the budget resolution—Rand Paul (R-Ky.) is the only senator who opposes the measure—but Senate Democrats are expected to draw out the process by offering a series of amendments to the legislation that will force Republicans into "painful" votes.

Other congressional Democrats joined Warren on social media Thursday to denounce the resolution hours before its likely passage.
