Barney Objects to GOP "Orgy of Self-Congratulation"

The congressman objects to the management of the Boehner congress.

Bleary-eyed lawmakers and aides froze on the House floor late Thursday when Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) objected to a compromise struck between Republicans and Democrats to proceed with a government funding measure.

“To debate the whole government, under the guise of a budget and the constraints of a government debate, in not a whole week – two and a half days so far – we have dealt with the most fundamental questions,” Frank cried, his voice growing louder.

“You get to debate whole aspects of the government tomorrow for 10 minutes, we are the model of democracy, the next thing you know, they’ll be rioting in parts of the world so they can have 10 minutes per issue to debate fundamental issues, this is a travesty!” Frank exclaimed.
