For those who not following anything but the debt ceiling negotiations this week, you missed out on a doozy of a virtual smackdown.
Earlier this week, Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) tossed off an angry email to Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (Fla.) and CC’d all House leadership.
The next day the Congressional Caucus for Women’s Issues, led by Rep. Donna Edwards (D-Md.) and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), held a press conference blasting West for his comments, while Rep. Bruce Braley (D-Iowa) has made buttons in support of Wasserman Schultz (and even changed his avatar to prove it).
Visitors get their first look at the American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial, which opened to the public on Monday, Oct. 6, 2014. The new memorial is located off Independence Ave. SW between the Rayburn House Office Building and HHS. Buy photo here.
