Boxer: GOP 'Acting Like You're Committing Domestic Abuse,' 'Bashed the Head of America'

Today, Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) told Republicans they're "acting like you're committing domestic abuse" by refusing to fund the government (and Obamacare) or raise the debt ceiling.

Boxer first compared Republican tactics to self-abuse (bashing yourself in the head with a rock):

"Suddenly, you take a stone from the ground and bash your head in. Honest to God, that's what they've done these Republicans: they've bashed the head of America. On a beautiful day, when we're coming out of recession, when we know we have our problems, but we also know we can solve them. It doesn't make sense."

And, then, as if that isn't enough, they have another stone in their hand called "default."

Boxer then went on to compare Republicans to people who abuse their spouses:

"I have to say, when you start acting like you're committing domestic abuse, you've got a problem. 'I love you dear, but you know, I'm shutting down your entire government. I love you dear, but I'm going to default and you're going to be weak.' Something is dreadfully wrong."
