FOX 11 asked Kagen, "Why did you vote for Congress to take a break?" Kagen replied: "To make sure we can get something done here at home and also in Washington. In Washington it's the United States Senate where one senator can put a finger on a bill and stop the show."Huh? He had to vote to adjourn so he could, "get something done here at home and also in Washington." And can someone explain to me exactly how the United States Senate is responsible in whole or part for a single vote that Steve Kagen has cast in the United States House of Representatives?
If you are even a casual reader of this blog, you know that I am no fan of Kagen, but I try (really, I do) to keep to the issues. Nonsense statements like these from a member of congress who represents me makes it very hard to do so however.
