Colbert testimony an ‘embarrassment,’ says Issa

From The Hill:

“This Congress is redefining the meaning of do-nothing and the fact that Congressional Democrats used their time and effort today to get Stephen Colbert to testify before the House Judiciary Committee while refusing to allow a straight-up-or-down vote on extending tax cuts for all Americans is an embarrassment.  It would be nothing short of cowardly, for this Congress to adjourn before at least trying to have a straight-up-or-down vote on extending tax breaks for the American people.”
