Dem Sen: Negotiating with GOP is like Negotiating with Terrorists


The Hill:

Democratic Sen. Robert Menendez on Friday compared talks with the GOP on extending tax cuts to negotiating with terrorists.

During a press conference on Capitol Hill, Menendez (N.J.) took aim at Republicans for opposing his party’s plan to extend the Bush-era tax cuts only for the middle class, accusing them of holding the cuts “hostage.” Asked about the possibility of compromising with the GOP, the senator sounded bearish, to say the least.

“Do you allow yourself to be held hostage and get something done for the sake of getting something done, when in fact it might be perverse in its ultimate results?” he asked. “It’s almost like the question of do you negotiate with terrorists.”

Stay classy, Dems… that sort of attitude is sure to win you back all the seats you lost last time.
