DNC Chair Says Socialist Policies Republicans Hate Are the Ones That Make Capitalism Work

During an appearance on Fox News with Bret Baier, Democrat National Committee Chair Tom Perez said something very funny.

This is what all Democrats believe.

Most of them don’t believe in God so they’ve got to believe in something, right!??

From Washington Times:

Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez says that what Republicans call “socialism” actually makes “capitalism work for everyone.”

Perez noted, “You know Brett, socialism is the oldest trick in the book. You’re a very good student of history. When Social Security was debated, when Medicare was debated, when the minimum wage was debated, Republican opponents of all of those three critical elements of our social compact said this is socialism. What Social Security and Medicare and the minimum wage have done is make capitalism work for everyone. And so, this is the oldest attack line in the book. Voters are smart. When you have coverage for people with a preexisting condition, I’d hardly call that socialism. I’d call that sound health policy and sound economic policy.

He added, “The big difference between Republicans and Democrats on the economy is that Democrats believe that the economy should work for everyone — not just a few at the top. Republicans don’t. Democrats have passed, in the House, an increase in the minimum wage. Donald Trump said seven and a quarter [dollars] is enough to feed your family. … If you want fiscal responsibility in this country — go back 20, 30 years — elect Democrats. [The] stock market does better. The deficit goes down. George Herbert Walker Bush handed Bill Clinton, you know, a deficit as long as the eye can see. Bill Clinton handed George W. Bush surpluses.

Perez says Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, and others are cowards who will be “judged harshly.”

Tom may not have realized it, but he pretty much just directly insulted half of the United States.

Does he care?

From American Mirror:

Much like Hillary Clinton infamously describing Trump supporters as “deplorables,” Perez is now labeling Americans who support the president as “cowards” on the wrong side of history.

Perez said, “The thing is, they are cowardly. I mean, history will not only judge Donald Trump harshly, it will judge Mitch McConnell, and Paul Ryan, and all the other cowards who refused to stand up to this president and allowed the party of Lincoln to die.
