Memphis Congressman Steve Cohen: “Today was one of the saddest days the House of Representatives has probably ever seen.”

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Congressman Steve Cohen (TN-09) spoke on the U.S. House floor about the House passage of HR 1406, which eliminates the 40-hour workweek. The measure, designed to drive down earnings for working Americans to inflate corporate profits, was passed with support from every Republican member of Congress from Tennessee — U.S. Reps. Phil Roe (TN-01), Jimmy Duncan (TN-02), Chuck Fleischmann (TN-03), Scott DesJarlais (TN-04), Diane Black (TN-06), Marsha Blackburn (TN-07) and Stephen Fincher (TN-08).

Democratic Reps. Jim Cooper (TN-05) and Cohen both voted against the bill which passed 223-204 mostly on party lines.

2. Where the hell is our leaders?

 

With all the 3rd Way, DINO's, Blue Dogs and the rest of the Right-of-Center Democrats, you ask where our leaders are?

Maybe this will help:
