(CNN) – Democrats offered a "prebuttal" on Monday to a top Republican's planned economic address, scheduled for Tuesday. But, it seems, they had to look to the past to predict the future.
On a conference call with reporters, Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, Democratic National Committee communications director Brad Woodhouse and Ohio Democratic Party chairman Chris Redfern pounded home the message that no matter what House Minority Leader John Boehner says on Tuesday, his policies would bring America back to "the last eight years."
The three Democrats joined to present a chorus of dissention.
"More of the same," Wasserman-Schultz said. "Maybe repackaged into something shiny. But not that it's going to look or smell or taste like anything different."
"Do you want to go back?" Redfern asked. "What'd that look like?"
Woodhouse put it bluntly when he described what to expect: "Same type of crap."
Boehner's spokesman pushed back against the Democrats not presenting the whole story.
"Tomorrow Leader Boehner will outline common-sense solutions to end the ongoing economic uncertainty, boost small business job creation and end the spending spree in Washington," Boehner spokesman Kevin Smith said. "Instead of spreading distortions, Democrats should be working with Republicans to support policies that will support true job creation and end the spending spree in Washington."
Boehner is scheduled to speak at the City Club of Cleveland on Tuesday morning.
