Warner on Shutdown: New Members of Congress Trying to Show “how tough they are”


    “Particularly some of these newer members, who in effect are going to show how tough they are by shutting down the government…beyond the fact of what effect it will have on literally millions of people’s lives in greater Washington, I think they really potentially run a risk of slowing this economic recovery that finally seems to be picking up speed.”

    Translation: The vast majority of “new members of Congress” are Republicans and/or Tea Partiers.
