Sen. Sanders: We Have Been Part of the Biggest Do-Nothing Senate in the Modern History of This Country

‘I think it is not inappropriate to have some serious debate on one of the very major pieces of legislation that we will be dealing with’

EXCERPT:

SANDERS: “And right now it is 2 o'clock, a little after 2 o'clock on Wednesday, out of here on Thursday. I am just a little bit worried that given the fact that we are talking about 53% of the discretionary budget of the United States of America, I am just a little bit worried about how many real amendments, significant amendments are going to be offered. And let us be clear that over the last year we have been part of what I consider the biggest do-nothing Senate in the modern history of this country."
