The Hill

The House of Representatives is not a meek institution. It can be fiercely partisan, rowdy and even arrogant.

Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) is none of these things.

The majority leader is a statesman who settles fights, while many of his colleagues start them.

Republicans laud Hoyer’s bipartisanship while Hoyer’s Democratic colleagues praise their majority leader’s listening skills.
