*Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) has been making headlines lately and her most recent comments have heads turning. At the Tea Party forum in Inglewood, Calif. Saturday, she made some harsh statements regarding the joblessness rate which is at 12 percent right now in California, the second highest in the nation after Nevada.
“I’m not afraid of anybody,” Waters told the crowd. “This is a tough game. You can’t be intimidated. You can’t be frightened. And as far as I’m concerned, the Tea Party can go straight to hell.”
But this wasn’t the first time she’s blasted the unemployment rates. Just last week, she got on Obama for ignoring the Black community.
“We don’t know why on this trip that he’s in the United States now, he’s not in any black community,” she said at a jobs forum in Detroit. “We want to give him every opportunity, but our people are hurting. The unemployment is unconscionable. We don’t know what the strategy is,” she continued. “We’re supportive of the president, but we getting tired, y’all, getting tired.”
