California Congresswoman Maxine Waters raised eyebrows during a fiery speech in Selma, Alabama over the weekend; calling on Congress to pass a financial reparations bill to address racial inequality and outright threatening Housing Secretary and former Presidential nominee Ben Carson.
Waters was answering questions from audience members when she was asked whether she would sponsor a reparations bill in the US Congress; saying she’d be “happy to do that” but adding Democrats need to re-take the House in order to pass the legislation.
“I’d be happy to do that. That’s no problem,” she said. “In order to get where we need to go on this issue and other issues, we really got to understand that 2018 is important in taking back the House and taking back the Senate.”
“If we want to get to the point where we can get reparations, we’ve got to have the power to do that, Number 1, by having a supportive president would be wonderful, but taking back the House would be absolutely wonderful,” she added.
“And by the way, we’re going to take care of Ben Carson too,” she bizarrely stated.
