At least one Republican Congressman thinks things need to change. We can only hope that we will see more rational behaviour in the coming months
Charlie Dent to NYT: We don't have 218 votes to determine a bathroom break
With the failed attempt to hold hostage funding for the Department of Homeland Security over President Obama's immigration policies still a open sore, the Republican Party has many other difficult votes on its horizon, the New York Times reports.
And U.S. Rep. Charlie Dent doesn't see the effort getting any easier even through his party has its largest majority in years, he tells the newspaper.
"We really don't have 218 votes to determine a bathroom break over here on our side," Dent, R-Northampton-Lehigh, told the Times. "So how are we going to get 218 votes on transportation, or trade, or whatever the issue? We might as well face the political reality of our circumstances and then act accordingly."
