House GOP Will Have 19 White Men as Committee Chairs in Next Congress | Video Cafe
They just really haven't learned anything, have they. The Grand Old Party of White Male Privilege has appointed nothing but White Males as committee chairs. No person's of color. No women. Because that's just the way it is in the GOPWMP.
The detailed list is here.
House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) issued the following statement today on the House Republican Steering Committee’s chairmanship recommendations for the 113th Congress. The Steering Committee’s recommendations will be presented to the full House Republican Conference tomorrow for ratification.
“Our team will continue focusing on reforms that will grow our economy and create new jobs, and on holding the Obama administration accountable through aggressive oversight of the Executive Branch. The House of Representatives is an outpost in Democratic-controlled Washington for the priorities of the American people, and I have every confidence that the chairmen selected today are up to the task of translating those priorities into solutions Americans are counting on to get our economy moving again.”
Notice how they still posit themselves as the saving grace in Washington, fighting against those liberal Democratic persons, keeping a close eye on Obama. Let's see how long it takes them to start proposing measures that actually do grow the economy and create jobs, instead of continuing their war on women and women's rights.
