It May Be a Party But It Sure Ain’t Tea In Those Cups

Congress-critters Get Drunk on the Floor of the House

A number of newspapers are reporting on page 26* the fact that a fair number of Congress-critters reeked of alcohol as to went about the public’s business leading up to shutting down the Government.

Here’s several tweets from reporters as revealed on Huffington Post:

“I’m not over exaggerating when I say I can smell the booze wafting from members as they walk off the floor.”

“About every other House lawmaker I just talked to smelled like booze. It’s only 9pm. Wheeee!”

This certainly explains a lot about Congress.

We’ve read as to how the Republicans have been pushing to tie Government Benefits to successful completion of an alcohol-drug test. Perhaps we should be testing Congress-critters BEFORE they vote on legislation. What is the penalty for L.W.I. (Lawmaking While Intoxicated) ?
