(CNSNews.com) - Although the tea party's influence is "undeniable," it is not inevitable -- and it must be crushed for the good of the nation, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) argued in a long political speech on Thursday.
"They've won elections, stymied Democratic priorities and taken a sledgehammer to programs that are important to tens of millions of Americans," he complained.
Among other recommendations, Schumer suggested an IRS crackdown on funding for tea party groups. "We have to look at electoral reform," he said.
"Our very electoral structure has been rigged to favor tea party candidates in Republican primaries, even when the district or the state may not be that red."
Schumer said "the tea party machine" has a particularly strong influence on Republican primaries, partly because the far right turns out to vote; and partly because of gerrymandering -- "where Republicans have learned to capture state legislatures and then use innovative technology to draw districts where a Democrat could never be elected. -

Imagine the tea party actually having the nerve
to elect representatives, people who don’t vote
democrat! Oh the horror.
Schumer should be locked away for this.
I thought the TEA Party was a flash-in-the-pan, irrelevant, dead.
The Facist wing of the DIM Party is clearly worried, so everything has to be changed.
Shummer is an evil little man who confirms this every time he opens his mouth.
Traitor are hanged. Just sayin’...
What Schumer is saying is exactly the same kind of crap that came out of Cuomo’s mouth, how dare Conservatives live in America..what Commies want are all Conservatives gone or dead so they can have their progressive utopia
Well, yes. It is good Washinton has so many lamp posts.
That would be something. Go after conservatives for wanting to exercise Article V, and then try to overturn Article II Section 1?
Chuck likes to old useless Republican’s so he wants to help them to remove the evil Tea Party ,LOL
DeBlasio, Cuomo, & Schumer have a common denominator : NYC. Let it burn.
And Chinless McConnell agrees.

“Just the beginning of going after the electoral college.”
When the Electoral College is eliminated and all voting power then resides in the major metropolitan areas (Chicago, Detroit, Miami, etc.), this will tear this country apart. We fought a war over “no taxation w/out representation”, and it will happen again...

|Woo hoo!! And the first 27% is in!! Thank you all very much!!|
Cuomo, deBlasio, Schumer and a host of other MarxoFasicsts are taking off the masks and the gloves, and we are seeing what they really intend to do to us be revealed.
They see us as enemies of the state.
And as history teaches, they ARE going to act on it.
Gulags and genocide are in our not-too-distant future.

Mitch has done lots to stymie Dems, so on balance he’s done well. Stopping Dems is about all you can achieve without the numbers in the Senate, and Obie in the Hut.....unless of course the House wanted to close the checkbook and refuse to open it.
I need a bigger Gadsden flag...
There you go again. How 'bout saying something that energizes the troops and raises morale for a change?
