Did Brownie actually ask the committee, "What did they need ice for, chill their beers and sodas?"

1. I think it was actually
keep their meat in their freezer from thawing but I am sure someone will have the exact quote.

Either way, it was just one of many idiotic things he said.

3. Here it is
BROWN: No, but I've been through disasters where I haven't had power for a long time and I know that the refrigerators go on the blink and food spoils, et cetera. But I don't think that's a federal government responsibility to provide ice to keep my hamburger meat in my freezer or refrigerator fresh.

7. He said it about meat and he said it about beer

And I think it's wrong for the federal government to be in the ice business, providing ice so I can keep my beer and Diet Coke cool.

Here is a transcript of the whole thing if you can stomach it;

I just heard about the meat comment this morning so didn't know about the beer and coke comment. What a jackass.

2. Yes
"I think it's wrong for the federal government to be in the ice business, providing ice so I can keep my beer and Diet Coke cool."

Taylor, incredulous, asked, "How about the need to keep bodies from rotting in the sun?"
