Beware the tea party, Jesse Jackson, Frederica Wilson and black Democrats say at jobs meeting
Democratic members of the Congressional Black Caucus are in Miami Tuesday to host a jobs fair, part of their five-city tour to draw attention to high unemployment, particularly in the black community.
But at a town-hall style meeting the members held Monday night, some of the most heated talk centered not on jobs but on the tea party.
“The real enemy is the tea party –- let’s remember that,” said Rep. Frederica Wilson of Miami Gardens, host of the meeting and jobs fair. “The tea party holds Congress hostage…They have one goal in mind, and that’s to make President Obama a one-term president.”
She got energetic applause from the crowd of hundreds at Mt. Hermon AME Church in Miami Gardens. So did Rep. Maxine Waters of California, who recently said the tea party should “Go straight to hell.”
“I’m in church. I’m not going to repeat that,” Waters said Monday.
