Like 3 Chics, we know Americans have been following the beltway drama of the GOP and the need to raise America’s debt ceiling. If the raising of the debt ceiling is just another procedural duty of congress, why haven’t we done this already; what’s the REAL hold up?
Did Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee throw the Race card on the table yesterday?
“I do not understand what I think is the maligning and maliciousness [toward] this president,” said Jackson Lee, a member of the Congressional Black Caucus. “Why is he different? And in my community, that is the question that we raise. In the minority community that is question that is being raised. Why is this president being treated so disrespectfully? Why has the debt limit been raised 60 times? Why did the leader of the Senate continually talk about his job is to bring the president down to make sure he is unelected?”
Watch the video and you decide. Is Rep. Jackson Lee playing the race card?
