Congressional Black Caucus Chair: Republicans Are “Evil and Mean” (Video)

Some of that new civility Obama brought to Washington...

The Cleveland Plains Dealer reported:
Congressional Black Caucus chair Marcia Fudge had harsh words on Thursday night for GOP colleagues on the House Agriculture Committee who she says “literally do not believe there is poverty in this country.”
In a George Washington University panel discussion on poverty hosted by PBS’s Tavis Smiley, Fudge expressed her disappointment with colleagues who voted to cut food stamps by $16.5 billion over the next 10 years.
“These same people believe if you do not work, you are lazy,” Fudge told the symposium, which was aired on C-SPAN. “These same people believe that if your children don’t get a good education, something is wrong with you. These are the craziest people I have seen in my life. Just absolute nuts. They don’t understand that the government’s job is to take care of its people.”
The Warrensville Heights Democrat, who just started a two-year term as chair of the Black Caucus, said that if such people continue to get elected to Congress, “we are never going anywhere as a country.”
“Because we deal with nuts, every single day,” said Fudge. “These people are evil and mean. They care nothing about anybody but themselves. And so, if you think you are going to have anything bipartisan, you need to think again. It is not happening.”

Same old, same old liberal dialogue's NOT the government's job to take care of me and mine. Their job is to safeguard our country and they are doing a lousy job of it.
