Embattle Florida Congressman Joe Garcia (D), referred to the so called, “Tea Party extremists” of the Republican-led House of Representatives, and the ‘outside powers’ that influence them, as the “Taliban.”

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, the name-calling and fear mongering continues to spew from the left side of the aisle.

Garcia made the remark during his speech on the floor of the House, where he railed against Republicans who where in favor of defunding and repealing the Obamacare law.

“The time has come to put these guys aside,” Garcia said, reading his remarks. “We just need our colleagues to step up, push aside these extremist elements, this Taliban.”-Miami Herald
