Debbie Wasserman Schultz is a Democrat member of Congress (FL-20) and current chair of the Democratic National Committee.
“…their callous indifference to the plight of children streaming across the border, fleeing horrific circumstances in their own country. Republicans are simply strangled by extremism.
There is no more establishment, or middle or moderate wing. You’ve got the Steve King wing of the Republican Party today, who raised the specter of impeachment this weekend.
These people are out of control. It’s stunning.”
“I’m pretty happy about 28 straight months of job growth in the private sector.”
“…John Boehner has allowed the Tea Party to take over his conference.
The Republicans have fully embraced extremism and they have brought in two years almost no jobs legislation to this floor and not worked with the president on any legislation to help make sure that we can move the economy forward because their number one goal is political and that’s to defeat Barack Obama.”
“[W]hat’s really bothersome to me…is that it almost seems like my Republican colleagues in Congress and Mitt Romney are rooting for economic failure.”
“You know, what Mitt Romney and the Republicans have been doing to themselves every single day is showing women in this country day after day that they are callously indifferent to women’s health, to the priorities of women. Really as evidenced by their obsession with cultural issues, their obsession with making sure that women can’t have affordable access to birth control, the dismissive way that the Chairman of the Republican National Committee today chalked up women being concerned about making sure that we could have affordable access to preventive screenings like mammograms as fictional as a war on caterpillars.”
“Playtime is over when it comes to women’s health decisions and no one needs to hear this message more than Mitt Romney.
…It’s time Romney and the rest of the Republican Party end the war on women they started.”
“It is absolutely unconscionable and irresponsible that Republicans are essentially crossing their arms, sitting back, and hoping for the economy to remain stagnant.”
“I think anyone who looks at the economy knows we have come a long way.
…And now we’ve begun to turn the corner.”
