Democrat Sen. Schumer Caught on Tape Urging Dems to call Tea Party “extreme” (Audio)

Posted by FactReal on March 29, 2011

Democrat Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) was caught on tape on a conference call urging other Democrats to politicize the budget negotiations and claim Tea Party people and Republicans are “extreme.” Democrats’ goal is to blame Tea Partiers and Republicans for a possible government shutdown and to put Republican House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) in a corner.

Schumer also indicates this is a strategy authorized by the Dems caucus: “I always use the word extreme, that is what the caucus instructed me to use the other week.”

“I always use the word extreme, that is what the caucus instructed me to do the other week. Extreme cuts and all these riders and Boehner is in a box. But if he supports the tea party there will inevitably be a shutdown. What we are trying to do here –”

According to RealClearPolitics, on the conference call were reporters and Senators Barbara Boxer (D-CA), Ben Cardin (D-MD), Tom Carper (D-Delaware) and Dick Blumenthal (D-CT).

Last November, Americans sent to Washington legislators to cut government’s excessive spending. Democrats continue to disregard the will of the people. They just care about their agenda.
