South Florida Dems go after tea party, Republican leaders

“Reckless” was the talking point word of the day Monday as South Florida Democrats sought to turn up the heat on Republicans, blaming the party’s tea party faction for the partial government shutdown and attempting to show how people are being hurt.

“This shutdown is irresponsible, infuriating and reckless,” declared U.S. Rep. Lois Frankel, a Democrat who represents mostly coastal Broward and Palm Beach counties.

“Congress has been hijacked by 30 or 40 radical members who oppose reasonable solutions. It’s been a week, because of a tea party tantrum, the whole country has been paralyzed,” she said. “Enough is enough. It’s time to reopen the entire government.”

U.S. Rep. Ted Deutch, a Democrat who represents northwest Broward and southwest Palm Beach County, said what’s going on is “irresponsible and reckless and dangerous.”

“This is a situation we find ourselves in because there is a reckless and extreme wing of the Republican Party that originally decided to shut down the government over their opposition to [Obamacare], a law that passed three years ago, that the Supreme Court has upheld, and it is an action that’s unprecedented,” Deutch said. ....

At a separate event, U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Weston, chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, issued her own criticisms of Republicans at a Fort Lauderdale airport news conference. She was joined by breast cancer survivor Carolyn Newman who said she’s saving $7,000 a year on health insurance she found through the new Obamacare marketplace.

“It is unconscionable that Republicans have shut down the government to prevent Carolyn and millions of other Americans, access to quality, affordable health insurance,” Wasserman Schultz said. She later added, via Twitter, that House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, is “afraid of challenging the most extreme voices in his caucus.”

If I was a liberal Democrat in 2013, I’d be pissing in everyone’s face too.

No one anywhere is lifting a finger to stop anything these people are doing (until now)...

The South Florida Dems have nothing to fear because they’ve learned how easy it is to rig elections and come up with millions of bogus absentee ballots. The corruption in that area is so thick that you can smell the stench of it, fueled by drug money and the crooked banks that launder it.

The desperation of the Left/Democrat Socialist Party is palpable. This is great theater — pure emotional drama - but entertaining to watch these adult temper tantrums.

South FL is a Yankee colony.

Some fifty years ago, we tried to stop the immigration, but some federal court said we couldn't. Darn.

Nothing is more reckless than:

"We have to pass the bill so you can find out what's in it."

Passing a bill that nobody has read.

That's right up there with:

"We have to get married before I go out on a first date with you."

"You have to buy my house before you can have it inspected."

These ought to be the Republican talking points in response to charges of being "reckless."

People are starting to see how much ObamaCare is going to cost them. Democrats are in a panic.

Similar to what I want to say.

Everything about Obamacare is the very definition of RECKLESS.

From its inception behind closed doors, its forced passage through Congress, the failure to read or understand it, and the blind, unquestioning support of this abomination. That is reckless!

We have a huge diversity of ‘tards in south Florida...self-loathing Jews who brought their Bolshevic tendencies from New York and New Jersey, homosexuals, black slaves pickin’ votes down on dat RAT plantation, insecure single women, clueless union drones voting against their own interests, smug students at second rate “institutions of higher learning”. greedy developers giving bags of money to RAT pols, lazy judges, corrupt school boards and county commissions, LEOs as criminal as those they’re supposed to protect us from....and that’s just Broward County!

It was reckless. Just look at what happened because of the Tea Party: the federal government didn’t have enough money to keep the ocean open, and they had to close a large section of ocean off the coast of Florida. That’s the Tea Party’s fault, you know.

Somehow, that doesn't ring true.

So instead of presenting a volley of proposals and ideas for the public to judge them on whether they should vote Democrats in instead of Republicans, they attack the opposition. The party of tearing down instead of moving to improve.
