Wasserman Schultz Says Tea Party Agenda “Not a Reflection” of her Congressional District

By Javier Manjarres

During a interview with the spanish-language television network Univision, DNC Chair/Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz was asked by anchor Sandra Peebles if she felt her congressional seat was “safe.”  Congresswoman Schultz appeared flustered and dodged the question which specifically inquired about the challenge posed from Republican primary front-runner Karen Harrington.

Wasserman-Schultz seemed a bit caught off guard, which likely caused her to pivot back to her predictable talking points and assert the candidates running in the Republican primary in Florida’s 20th Congressional district are “very focused on the agenda of the Tea Party”, and  “that’s not a reflection of the values of this district.”

To refresh Debbie’s memory, “Tea Party values” are pretty simple and straightforward.  The Tea Party movement came into being as a critical mass of ordinary Americans publicly vented their frustrations about increasing government encroachment and overreach into their lives, particularly from the federal level.  The Tea Party’s core values are restoring fiscal responsibility, returning government to its proper constitutional functions, and demanding that our political class hold itself to the highest levels of transparency and accountability- all values that Debbie Wasserman-Schultz and the Democrat Party cannot square their  progressive agenda with. **Note-‘Someone’ complained about the video, so our friends over at Univision asked us to take down the video. We took the video down as a courtesy.
