Frustrated with Black unemployment, Congressional Black caucus members say that they will carry the fight to Tea Party Republicans, who they blame for blame for President Obama’s latest lurch to the right.
During the latest Black Caucus’ stop in Atlanta, Rep. Maxine Waters said that 43 African-American lawmakers have vowed to take matters into their own hands, just as Tea Party members have done in the past.
The Daily Beast reports:
“The Tea Party discovered something. That is if they organize, if they talk loud enough, if they threaten, if they register to vote and elect a few people, they can take over the Congress of the United States,” said Rep. Maxine Waters. “They called our bluff and we blinked. We should have made them walk the plank.”
