Cicilline bashes Republicans for gridlock

August 11, 2013

As a relatively junior Democrat in a Republican-dominated Congress, 1st District Rep. David Cicilline says he finds it “very frustrating” that a significant portion of the GOP “are not moving forward anything we need to get done,” in terms of the important issues facing the country.

Instead, he says, “they seem very focused on passing bills that are used to communicate a message and speak to the most extreme members of their party, knowing that the bill in the form that they pass it is not going to be taken up by the Senate or is promised to be vetoed by the president.”
