U.S. Senator Edward J. Markey used an analogy to something that has been on a lot of Americans' minds this week -- Breaking Bad.
"I think Tea Party Republicans saw Breaking Bad’s dramatic depiction of reckless behavior last night and thought they could put on a better finale. They could create more drama. They could cook up even more toxic ideas. They could break this government in every bad way possible," Markey said. “These Tea Party antics are the stuff of fairy tales. The way the GOP is writing this story, at the stroke of midnight, as we turn the calendar to October, our government and potentially our economic recovery, turn into a pumpkin.
"But it’s the Tea Party GOP who are in Fantasyland, thinking we will actually allow them to cut off Obamacare, shut down the government, and melt down our economy," he said.
Massachusetts' other senator, Elizabeth Warren, also bashed Republicans on Monday. She charged that the GOP was holding the country hostage and that's the only power Republicans on Capitol have left.
