If Democrats take over the House in the midterm elections, Maxine Waters has some scores to settle.
The California congresswoman told a group of constituents what’s in store for her enemies, should she gain the chairmanship of the Financial Services Committee.
“We have an election November 6th,” Waters said. “This is big. This may be the most important one that you’ve ever had to experience.
“This is the midterm election and often times people only vote in the presidential election because they don’t think this is important enough. But this is absolutely important,” she lectured.
“First of all, if we take back the House, most of the members of the Congressional Black Caucus will be chairs of the committees of the Congress of the United States of America,” Waters said, waving her fingers as the audience applauded.
“I will be the first African-American, the first woman to chair the powerful Financial Services Committee.
“That’s all of Wall Street. That’s all the insurance companies, that’s all the banks. And so, of course, the CEOs of the banks now are saying, ‘What can we do to stop Maxine Waters because if she gets in she’s going to give us a bad time?'” she said.
“I have not forgotten you foreclosed on our houses,” she warned.
“I have not forgotten that you undermined our communities,” she continued with the tone of a preacher.
“I have not forgotten that you sold us those exotic products, had us sign on the dotted line for junk,” she yelled, “and for mess that we could not afford.”
“I have people who are homeless who have never gotten back into a home. What am I going to do to you?
“What I am going to do to you is fair. I’m going to do to you what you did to us,” she vowed.
Governance by retribution. What could go wrong?
Maxine’s mob loved it, bursting into cheers.
