DEMOCRAT NADLER Calls Republicans “A Bunch of Gangsters” For Not Wanting to Increase Taxes (Video)
Democrats are still having a hissy fit that the hostage takers won’t let them raise taxes.
Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) called Republicans “a bunch of gangsters” who blackmailed Democrats to ensure that the nation’s wealthiest retain their tax cuts.
Nadler, appearing Sunday morning on CBS’ “Face the Nation,” characterized the Republican stance on the bipartisan compromise on extending the Bush-era tax cuts of “nice middle class tax cut you have there, pity if something would happen to it unless you give millionaires and billionaries” a tax cut. “Unless you give the wealthier a tax cut we’re not permitting the middle class to get it.”
Nadler expressed concern that Republicans will continue pressing Congress and President Obama for a permanent extension of those tax cuts and if we “succumb to blackmail” now why should there be any expectation that they will have the “political gumption in 2012 to not submit again.”
