DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz has had a busy couple of days between holding a press conference about a movie, accusing Republicans of being dictators and holding a conference call today on campaign fundraising – all while Republicans on Capitol Hill work to solve our nation’s debt crisis. As our country is engaged in a debate over how to confront the $14.3 trillion debt, Wasserman Schultz is trying to talk about anything but the debt ceiling.
