Bernie Sanders: ‘It Pains Me Very Much’ that Boehner Cannot ‘Get His Act Together’
SANDERS: "So we had momentum and then Mitch McConnell, as I understand it, says, well, you know what, I can't go forward until we see what's going on in the House, but nothing is going on in the House because they can't get their act together. You know, it pains me very much. It really does. This country, Brooke, as you well know, has enormous problems. We have a disappearing middle class. Poverty is at an all-time high. The gap between the very rich and everybody else is growing wider. We can't even begin to address those problems because we're waiting for the House to say, oh, yeah, I guess it's okay to pay our bills or reopen the government."
BALDWIN: "I hear your frustration. You're not the first senator to come on this show and express frustration regarding your colleagues in the House."
