Sen. Durbin Blasts Do-Nothing Senate

While Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) is busy watching Fox News at the gym while he works out, the rest of America, he says, is seeking refunds from the anger they feel while watching a stagnate Senate on C-SPAN2.

“People across American who subscribe to Cable ask for refunds when they turn on C-SPAN and see the Senate sit there day after day doing nothing lurching from filibuster to filibuster,” Durbin said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday in response to Sen. Jon Kyl (R-Ariz.) insisting that not all of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid‘s (D-Nev.) agenda items could get achieved in the next three weeks.

Of course, Durbin is using C-SPAN2 to make his point. People aren’t actually phoning into their cable company or C-SPAN to request refunds because of the Senate’s inaction.
