Rep. Steny Hoyer is one of the Democratic Party’s elder statesmen. He is also a repugnant reptile.
House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) charged Tuesday that Monday’s bombings in Boston is proof that sequestration endangers the U.S.
Hoyer argued during his weekly pen and pad meeting with reporters that “sequestration is a stupid policy” and that the Boston incident is further proof that it is unwise to cut off funding that could safeguard Americans’ security.
Terrorists have been trying and sometimes succeeding to attack Americans in America long before the sequester. Which, by the way, was the Obama White House’s idea.
If Steny Hoyer really has a problem with the sequester, he should take it up with President Barack Obama, and not be a ridiculous partisan hack about it.
