Collins Scolds the Democrats for Wasting Time With Complaints About Time

As the DeVos hearings march on, every single Democrat representative on the committee has spent a good portion of their allotted time complaining about the amount of time they have to ask questions. Almost every introduction has begun with what amounts to a senatorial temper tantrum about the rules they themselves have applied to the questioning of their own nominees.

Senator Susan Collins (R-Maine) decided she’d had enough and laid down a polite but firm rebuke of the whining of her Democrat colleagues.

“I could not help but think that if my friends on the other side of the aisle had used their time to ask questions rather than complaining about the lack of a second round they each would have been able to get in a second question.”
