HOH would love to get a look at what’s on the iPods of Members of Congress, but we’ll settle for the next best thing. HOH caught up with lawmakers last week at the Grammys on the Hill, an annual event that honors politicians, educators and musicians for their work to protect artists’ rights.
We asked Members who were some of their favorite musicians. Here’s what they said:
House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.): Martina McBride
Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.): Jon Bon Jovi (who’s in contention with Bruce Springsteen for the title of the Bard of New Jersey)
United We Dream protesters carry a mock coffin to the office of Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, in the Dirksen Senate Office Building on Monday, July 21, 2014, to hold one of their "funeral services for the Republican Party" due to GOP positions on immigration. The immigration reform group visited several other Senate Republican offices to hold similar funeral services.
