Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) compared House conservatives to a flea Friday as rhetoric in the spending fight intensified.
Schumer, who has been criticizing Republicans all day, said in a floor speech Friday that conservatives were the flea controlling the dog, which he said in this case is a federal government that could shut down at midnight.
â€œWhat we have here is a flea, wagging a tail, wagging a dog,â€ said Schumer, chairman of the Senate Democratic Policy Committee.
â€œThe flea are the minority of House Republicans who are hard right, the tail is the House Republican caucus, and the dog is the government,â€ Schumer explained. â€œThat flea is influencing what the dog does … and it is sad.â€
Schumer for more than a week has been arguing that Tea Party conservatives will be to blame if there is a shutdown.
