Last quote by Steny Hoyer

It is the most irresponsible bill that I will have been confronted with in the 37 years that I have been in the Congress of the United States. This bill, Mr. Speaker, is both reckless and feckless. There is no courage in voting for this bill. Only a suspension of common sense and their now abandoned commitment to fiscal sustainability.feedback
