Why did they evacuate? These guys are against EPA regulation. I say they take a stand!

I wouldn't put it past him, but they probably knocked over some solvent used in cleaning up asbestos.

They've been shutdown for years.
 
2014-07-10 12:52:23 PM
I strongly encourage our fearless leaders to go to work anyway.

And breathe deeply.  Very deeply.  Take Freedom Breaths(tm).

The House you say?  Get 'em back in there, use force if necessary.
 
2014-07-10 12:57:04 PM
The House is shut down?  How can you tell?
 
2014-07-10 12:57:40 PM
Oh noooo. The republicans in the house were just about to release their healthcare plan too.. but now unfortunately the industrial spill got on most of the papers and we have to throw the whole thing out.. and it was going to be so good too, Like free healthcare for all, tax breaks and jobs everywhere good.
 
2014-07-10 12:58:10 PM
But now how will our government officials convene to get nothing accomplished?

Ssenior source says they don't know "the extent" of industrial spill at Capitol. Air testing going on. EPA & HAZMAT on scene.

Ok, why did this guy feel the need to place the extent in quotes?  Does he not believe that's what they said, or is he just a douchebag?  I don't twittwat, so I have no idea who he is.

Maybe they will now all turn Boner Orange.
 
2014-07-10 01:11:19 PM
No conspiracy theories? I'm shocked.

Probably because he's directly quoting those two words. It's annoying but there are plenty of publications that do that.
 
2014-07-10 02:14:15 PM
So does this mean the House is recess and Obama can fill more political appointee slots?

Take the chance while you can dude...

Gotcha.  Thanks!

The only way to be certain all the pollutants are out is to tell all 535 members of Congress
(100 senators, 435 representatives) to pack up and leave.  (My solution to the term-limit question:
everyone in politics - all office-holders - get one term, equal-length, and after it's over, they are
forbidden from dealing with government in any way, permanently.)
 
2014-07-10 03:16:09 PM
how quick do they blame this on Obama?

ManateeGag: how quick do they blame this on Obama?


Well, Obama had requested more money for The Capitol Building's maintenance, but the GOP cut the budget instead. This is Obama's Benghazi.

DNRTFA - But does this have anything to do with that EPA guy who's been sh*tting in hallways?

How quickly does Obama blame this on Bush?

Cool, can we make it permanent?
