Senator Barbara Boxer Belittled Domestic Abuse Victims

barbara boxer domestic abuse

Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA) belittled domestic abuse victims by making outrageous comments comparing the Republican Party in Congress to people who engage in domestic abuse.

As a woman, this is very offensive. The accusation, or rather the abusive behavior the Democratic Party has hurled toward the Republican Party, is atrocious.

The Democratic Party and their “war on women” blatantly make light of such a serious topic, taking for granted that women would not become upset over them belittling the severity of abuse victims.

The House of Representatives are actually doing their job, and instead of Sen. Boxer trying to reach her hand across the isle, she slaps the Republican party with disturbing abusive comments, which makes one pause to question who really is the abuser. Boxer stated:

Suddenly, you take a stone from the ground and bash your head in. Honest to God, that’s what they’ve done these Republicans: they’ve bashed the head of America. On a beautiful day, when we’re coming out of recession, when we know we have our problems, but we also know we can solve them. It doesn’t make sense. And, then, as if that isn’t enough, they have another stone in their hand called default.

Then, the endearing senator continued on her rant towards the Republican Party :

When you start acting like you’re committing domestic abuse, you’ve got a problem. I love you dear, but, you know, I’m shutting down your entire government. I love you dear, but I’m going to default and you’re going to be weak.

The senator lied to the people by stating, “we’re coming out of recession.” Has she not looked at the debt, which is the the big red number with the minus sign next to it that just keeps going up, or the unemployment number? And if we are coming out of recession, then why would we need to raise the debt ceiling to fund more “necessary” government programs?

That statement is a blatant lie, especially since the labor force participation rate is at its lowest, even President Jimmy Carter had a higher participation rate.

We have seen the repercussions when we do not have a strict spending budget, then raising the debt ceiling without coupled spending cuts, or as the Democrats like to call it, “clean.”

Here we are today, with the highest debt we have ever had, the lowest labor force participation in over 30 years, a law fondly referred to as Obamacare that was rammed down the throats of the American people, and yet she has the audacity to call the Republican Party abusers.

Instead of reaching across the isle to negotiate, the only thing that Senator Barbara Boxer accomplish was to create a bigger rift between the parties by attacking the Republican Party, belittling domestic abuse victims, telling lies to Americans, and using good ole fashion fear mongering by equating the default to the government shutdown.

The Democratic Party is well aware that Moody’s said that even if Congress fails to lift the limit on borrowing next week the nation will not default, preserving the nation’s sterling credit rating.

It is time for all parties to sit down and negotiate before their worst fear comes to fruition, of course, by their own design.
