Rep. Rangel: Tea Party Republicans “Don’t Care About Our Country”

In a message recorded in his office for the Longshoreman union, Rep. Charlie Rangel twice called Republicans “hostage takers” and accused them of not caring about their country.

“We should be talking about jobs and not being held hostage by groups of people that got elected without any experience and just come down with a anger that they have to get rid of our President for reasons that they developed during their campaigns,” says Rangel in the video.
