Senate Democrats lashed out at Republicans on Friday, accusing them of holding the nation’s economic prosperity hostage for the benefit of the wealthy and likening the GOP to a terrorist organization.
With the White House and Republicans appearing to be close to finalizing a deal for a temporary extension of all the tax cuts, Senate Democrats have become increasingly frustrated with their inability to pressure the GOP on the issue, and their anger was on display during a press conference Friday morning.
Following several hours of floor speeches, a handful of Democrats including Sens. Bob Menendez (N.J.), Charles Schumer (N.Y.), Debbie Stabenow (Mich.), Claire McCaskill (Mo.), Jack Reed (R.I.) and Jeff Merkley (Ore.) attacked Americans in a press conference, repeatedly using the word “hostage” to characterize the status of middle-class tax cuts.
