Democratic congresswoman Donna Edwards said that voters "may not care about Benghazi, but they care about Bin Laden."
"It's an evolving security situation," said Rep. Edwards. "One can expect one thing true in the beginning is different in the end. I think we have to take the politics out of this. What voters care about, they may not care about Benghazi, but they care about Bin Laden."
Yesterday afternoon, while the House Republican leadership was busy securing votes for the 2011 budget deal forged last week, a small group of House Democrats met to discuss with the press and the public their ongoing participation in “Hungerfast,” a nationwide hunger strike (which supposedly has over 36,000 participants) protesting cuts to federal food and nutrition programs.
House Democrats, in their depleted numbers and minority status, probably felt left out of this week's tense budget battle in Congress. Former House speaker and minority leader Nancy Pelosi even left town Friday.
