Committee Devolves Into Chaos After Democratic Rep Compares Republicans To Terrorists
The House Appropriations Committee took a nearly two-hour-long recess in the middle of a Tuesday hearing after Ranking Member Rosa DeLauro compared Republican members of Congress to terrorists.
The committee met to debate Fiscal Year 2024 funding for the Departments of Transportation and Housing and Urban Development. Shortly after 12 p.m., Republican Oklahoma Rep. Tom Cole introduced an amendment that would strike earmarks for three LGBTQ community centers. Several Democrats objected to it, claiming that revoking funding would cause violence against the LGBTQ community.
