Fun News

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene:

My Democrat colleague across the aisle who’s 80 years old and has been here over 30 years just said we’re on the verge of a shutdown. She probably just forgot that a few hours ago, she voted for the continuing resolution that will extend the budget and we are not on the verge of a shutdown. So, I just wanted to note that for the record.

Rep. Rose DeLauro (who is 80 and that is who MTG was trashing - thinking DeLauro was having a "senior moment":

I’m very well aware of the rule– of the vote that we took earlier this evening. It may be that the Gentlelady doesn’t know that there is another body attached to the U.S. Congress called the United States Senate, and they have to vote on the continuing resolution.

And when they vote on it, we’ll find out what it is that they do with regard to this continuing resolution passed by the House, which quite frankly is flawed to a fare-thee-well, flawed to a fare-thee-well in meeting our obligations, both domestic and international.

And by the way, it isn’t a law of the land until the president of the United States signs it. That may be a basic level– lesson in civics. There is the House, there is the Senate, and there is the president.

And quite frankly, the budget agreement that had been signed by the president – for a basic primer in civics – is that the budget agreement passed the House overwhelmingly.

And it passed the Senate. And it was signed by the president. It’s the law of the land, which my colleagues on the other side of the aisle have dismissed, walked away from, and quite frankly, don’t understand the process of government.

Oh sweet mystery of life...
