The Politico reports that Nancy Pelosi is turning Congress into an episode of NBC’s The Office:
“There are a lot of meetings,” agreed Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.), an ally of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).
The large number of meetings says something about the kind of inclusive regime Pelosi intends to build.
It also drives staffers nuts.
One leadership aide said that Pelosi schedules meetings to talk about the agenda for the next meeting, leaving no time to get anything done. Those complaints fall on the deaf ears of members of Congress not forced to attend.
