The Daily Quote

“We can’t blame everything on the Senate. The average American doesn’t realize that…We need to quit passing bills over here and cheering for ourselves when we know they’re dead on arrival over there. And at some point, if the Senate wants to play like this, we need to work something out to help the American people."

  -   Rep. Lynn Westmoreland (R-GA), Politico, 1/25/12
