On Saturday, noted socialist Rep. Maxine Waters was with a group of Black Caucus members in Washington DC when they the Congressional members claimed they were called the n-word and one representative said he was spit on.
Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., who in 2008 made her own socialist Freudian slip, couldn’t handle that. In an appearance on HLN’s March 22 “The Joy Behar Show,” Waters expressed her jubilation over the House of Representative vote on health care reform on March 21.

“I was very pleased. It was truly a historic moment and I almost couldn`t believe it was happening,” Waters said. “It was surreal that all of a sudden it all came together after a year of debate and many times thinking it would never happen.”
And all this happened despite the best efforts of the tea party efforts to convince members of Congress there would be repercussions for voting on a bill that public opinion wasn’t in line with, or as Waters referred to them as “the teabaggers.”
“Thinking that the teabaggers out there had influenced a lot of people and had caused them to be on the ‘no’ side, and when it finally happened, I thought, my God, this certainly is historic,” Waters said. “This is a moment in history that will be remembered for a long time.”
This wasn’t the first time that Waters ranted against the “teabaggers.”
