“Extremist” Charles Schumer Caught Giving Marching Orders to Fellow Big Spending Libs

Senator Charles Schumer spilled the beans today when he told fellow democrats to call the meager GOP spending cuts “extreme.” Schumer didn’t know reporters were already listening in on the call.

That’s the dem game plan. To call any cuts to their historic and irresponsible budget “extreme.”

Obama, Pelosi, Reid and Senate Democrats like Schumer added over One Trillion Dollars to the Federal Budget in the last 4 years.

That’s at least a 30% increase in federal spending in just 3 years.
Democrats LOVE to spend your money. It’s what they live for.
And, now we know that if you suggest that they cut back on their record deficit spending they will call you “extreme.”

The Washington Examiner reported:

Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., a member of the Democratic Senate leadership, got on a conference call with reporters Tuesday morning without realizing the reporters were already listening in. Schumer thought he was on a private line with four Democratic senators who were to talk with reporters about the current budget stalemate.

Schumer instructed the group, made up of Sens. Barbara Boxer of California, Tom Carper of Delaware, Ben Cardin of Maryland and Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut, to tell reporters that the GOP is refusing to negotiate.

He told the group to make sure they label the GOP spending cuts as “extreme.”

“I always use extreme,” Schumer said. “That is what the caucus instructed me to use.”

Someone must have finally told Schumer that the media were listening and he stopped talking midsentence.

Here’s a bit more of what he said about House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, according to my notes.

“The main thrust is basically that we want to negotiate and we want to come up with a compromise but the Tea Party is pulling Boehner too far over to the right and so far over that there is no more fruitful negotiations,” Schumer said on the call. “The only way we can avoid a shutdown is for Boehner to come up with a reasonable compromise and not just listen to what the Tea Party wants. “
