House Democrat: Transportation debate like a ‘soap opera’

McGovern went on to compare the House Republican leadership to “cheap asphalt,” taking a shot at rumored tension between different factions within the party.

McGovern wasn’t the only House Democrat frustrated by Thursday’s debate. Reps. Charles Rangel (N.Y.) and Joe Courtney (Conn.) also vented through Twitter, calling the GOP’s actions “playing politics” and “embarrassing,” respectively.
