Chris Hayes: ‘I cannot find one Republican who has anything constructive to say’

Updated

On Wednesday’s All In, Chris Hayes pointed out that even though the annual budget deficit has shrunk by 60%, “House Speaker John Boehner and Republicans are frozen in their 2009 mindset. The conversation about the deficit hasn’t changed.”

Douglas Holtz-Eakin, president of the American Action Forum, weighed in to talk about the divisiveness between parties. “[The president] needs to actually lead his own party and get serious about this.”

Hayes gave a spirited response:

“You and I are sitting here talking about actuary projections for 2016, when we have an absolutely destroyed and broken labor market; we have 45 million people in poverty; we are going through austerity that is not helping people with depressed wages, and this is the conversation we have.  And it drives me out of my mind because I cannot, for the life of me, find one person on the Republican side of the aisle who cares or has anything constructive to say. I’m being totally serious here.”
