Power Line posted a story yesterday on the overheard Democrat talking points voiced by Senator Chuck Schumer. The story goes that the Senator was briefing the Democrats on how to handle the budget negotiations and did not realize reporters were also on the line. The article reports:
“Mr. Schumer told them to portray John Boehner of Ohio, the Speaker of the House, as painted into a box by the Tea Party, and to decry the spending cuts that he wants as extreme. “I always use the word extreme,” Mr. Schumer said, “That is what the caucus instructed me to use this week.””
Note to Senator Schumer–this is not a game–this is the future of America. The thing to remember here is that when the Democrats held the majorities in the House and Senate and the Presidency, they were unwilling to pass a budget for 2011. Why? Because they would rather play politics than get anything done. It really is time to send these people packing–they need to be unelected and sent home!
The really comical part of this story is that they used their revealed talking points after they got caught. Our media is not reminding you why there is no budget, and the Democrats would rather have the political advantage they believe they will get from a shutdown. This is not good for the country, and the people doing this do not have the good of our country in mind. This is not a game–it is our future.
