Congress isn’t ‘just sitting around eating bonbons’ : Meadows vs Ocasio-Cortez

Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., reportedly butted heads with freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., a bit on Tuesday.

Meadows and fellow GOP lawmakers were trying to persuade Cummings to provide upward of three days’ notice — ideally, five days — for Democratic lawyers’ questioning of witnesses so members could sit in, the outlet said.

Ocasio-Cortez chimed in to say she didn’t “believe we need five days” as long as members were effectively carrying out their jobs, Bloomberg said.

Meadows reportedly addressed Cummings in his reply.

“Mr. Chairman, I can tell you on all of this at this particular point, we’re all wanting to cooperate,” Meadows said. “Sometimes our schedules, you know, we’re not just sitting around eating bonbons, waiting for the call of anybody.”
