Alan Simpson, the former out-spoken Republican Senator from Wyoming stayed true to his colors and called out the Teaparty members in Congress for their unwillingness to compromise, a position that led to the decision of S&P to downgrade America’s credit.
Mr. Simpson, in a telephone interview with Fox Business News today, said he found it “stunning that people are disgusted” with these Teaparty/Republicans, and asked, “what did they think was going to happen?”
“[Obama] is smarter than rigid people who don’t compromise on anything. If you came to Congress not to compromise you’re totally ineffective, you oughta’ go home. You can compromise an issue without compromising yourself. These guys think the word compromise is a silly word. They’re nuts!”
