The Democrat Party appears willing to assign blame for this weekend’s looming government shutdown over failure to agree on the fate of Dreamers, but members might be called out for hypocrisy after fiery comments made about Republicans during 2013’s shutdown.
In 2013, Democrats called Republicans who refused to get on board with the Obama administration's agenda “anarchists," and “arsonists” with “a bomb strapped to their chest."
"I call them 'legislative arsonists'," House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said at the time.
Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said at the time that he has “never seen such an extreme group of people adopt such an insane policy.”
“Does Speaker (John) Boehner need to engage in something like the ancient practice of sacrifice, this time to the right-wing gods? Do we have to sacrifice the economy and help for millions of middle class people?” he said during a TV appearance.
Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., called Republicans “unhinged.”
