The more the far left takes over the Democratic Party, the faster it will fail to be a political force in America, a noted GOP lawmaker from Tennessee said on Friday.
In an interview with Fox Business’ Maria Bartiromo, Rep. Chuck Fleischmann proclaimed that the Democrats are “a dying party” and that Republicans have become dominant among working-class Americans.
He also lashed out at the House Democrat majority for passing a massive $1.5 trillion spending measure that runs more than 2,700 pages without giving lawmakers time to read what’s in it.
“Basically, ideologically, [the radical Democrats] are wrong. They just don’t get it. The Democratic Party ran on this. They believe it inherently, but they are inherently wrong,” he said.
Their entire left-wing scenario when they are dealing with supply and demand, they don’t understand that. They don’t respect free-market capitalism. They don’t want American entrepreneurs to do well. They want big, bloated government to do well, and basically, they are stuck with an ideology that is not working in the 21st century.
It’s antiquated, it’s wrong, and it’s old, it doesn’t fit, and they are afraid to break from it because their party has moved so far left — we see this time and time again. We saw it this week on the House floor where progressives revolted against Pelosi and the White House. They didn’t know what to do. They just stopped for hours at a time.
“So, they have got to revamp. The Democratic Party has got to revamp. I don’t think they can. I think they are a dying party. The Republican Party has got the ideas to move this great country forward.”
