The Leader Board

Floor Confession: Democrat Senator Concedes 'The Aim Of This Bill Is Not To Lower The Unemployment Rate Or The Price Of Gasoline'



SEN. SHELDON WHITEHOUSE (D-RI): "The Senate Republican Leader has described the bill as yet another proposal from the White House that won't create a single job or lower the price at the pump by a penny. Well, the Minority Leader is absolutely right that the aim of this bill is not to lower the unemployment rate or the price of gasoline." (Sen. Whitehouse, Floor Remarks, 4/16/12)
