Congressman Markey: An Ode to Republicans
MALDEN – Top Democratic Congressman Edward J. Markey of Malden released a statement following House Republicans’ agreement to pass the Senate’s bipartisan compromise that would extend the payroll tax cut yesterday. In the release, Markey compares House Republicans to the Grinch, and offered a new version of the poem based on the famous Dr. Seuss tale.
“And what happened then…?
Well…in the House, they say
That the GOP’s small hearts
Grew three sizes that day!
And the minute their hearts didn’t feel quite so tight,
They called to their Tea Party in the faint evening light
And they thought of the voters
And decided at last!
And they…Republicans THEMSELVES…
Said the bill would be passed!”
