Thirty seven House freshmen held a press conference on Tuesday to mark the 888th day since the U.S. Senate has taken any action on passing a federal budget.
"Harry Reid and the Senate have held the American people hostage for 888 days,” Rep. Bobby Schilling (R-Ill.) said at the press conference at the U.S. Capitol.
With three toy-fortune-telling eight balls as a prop on the podium, many of the 37 freshmen said they were at the press conference to urge Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) to act to put a federal budget in place – a move the group said would end the uncertainty in the U.S. marketplace.
The group also announced the launch of “Operation Turnaround,” which seeks Senate action on 11 “pro-growth” pieces of legislation that were passed by the House but have languished in the Senate. A resolution disapproving of the Federal Communications Commission’s net neutrality regulations also was cited.
