This must be more of that new climate of dialogue that the media was talking about…
Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee accuses Republicans of turning Congress into a “clogged toilet.”
The GOP has only been in charge for a month.
The Hill reported:
One of the Democrats’ fieriest voices on Capitol Hill accused the Republicans of turning Congress into a “clogged toilet.”
Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) said Friday that House Republicans were blocking the proper functioning of the lower chamber by debating a bill instructing committees to give closer scrutiny to regulations.
“What we will be doing is ignoring the people’s business of creating jobs and frankly putting ourselves in the role of a clogged toilet,” said Lee. “That means we are doing nothing. We are stuffed up.”
Republicans, flush with election victory, however, responded that clearing unneeded regulation was one important way to kick-start the economy and create jobs.
