Fox News contributor Pat Caddell said Sunday that the "fiscal cliff" deal was tantamount to "raping" the "ordinary American."

Caddell, along with Doug Schoen and former Rep. John LeBoutillier (R-NY), he was discussing who the winners were in the recent fiscal cliff negotiations.

Schoen said that the deal was a huge win for President Obama and Democrats.

Caddell said, "The bigger loser was the American people by a long shot. This deal is a raping of the ordinary American."

Special interests, he said, made out like bandits in the deal.

Caddell was once a Democrat. He worked on McGovern's 1972 presidential campaign and was influential in President Jimmy Carter's administration.

He left the Democratic party in the late 1980s over a lawsuit. Now he's a Fox New contributor, pollster and political film consultant.
