If you had any doubt that Congress is dysfunctional, this will settle the issue for you. During a committee hearing this week, chaired by Jerry Nadler, the scene was total pandemonium.
Madness: Nadler Gavels in Hearing Without Barr, Cuts Off a Republican’s Mic
The House Judiciary Committee hearing with Attorney General Bill Barr proceeded on Thursday without the witness. He was expected to answer questions about special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation for the second day in a row, but decided against it because of arguments over who would be interrogating him. Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY), for his part, insisted that Barr was afraid to answer questions.
In his rebuttal, ranking member Doug Collins (R-GA) noted that Barr sat for six hours before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday. Clearly, he’s not terrified of sitting before Congress. The issue, Collins said, was that the Democrats wanted staff members to ask questions of the attorney general.
“If that staff member wants to ask questions, run for Congress,” Collins suggested.
The attorney general is not here today, he added, “because the Democrats didn’t want him here today.”

These are the people who think they can run our healthcare system?
Check out some of the Twitter replies:
Failure to accept 2016 election results has literally destroyed the minds of half the country. 5 more years of Trump makes me very happy.

These are the clowns we pay over 150,000 dollars a year to represent us. Then they take bribes from lobbyists to become millionaires. A pathetic situation that is nearly impossible to fix. Every congressional seat, and Senate seat needs to he terminated. Start over please!!!

@JerryNadler the Ringleader of the Congressional Circus. Funny, but embarrassing and a little sad, that this is the best we can come up with.

Nadler will lose he has trouble functioning he lost control of the house committee vote today. The congressman wants staff attorneys to ask the AG questions what's wrong with them ? Let's hope lots of democratic indictments coming soon

Nadler is a clown presiding over clowns.
It’s amazing that these people were elected.
