Congressman Connie Mack (R-FL) Discusses Senate's Failure on FAA and Spending Priorities

Congressman Connie Mack (R-FL) sat down recently on CNN's "In The Arena" to discuss the recent failure by the US Senate to pass a bill funding the FAA with guest host Tom Foreman. The failure of the Senate to pass a bill places 70000 Americans without a paycheck and costs the country millions in lost revenue. Congressman Mack was sympathetic to those affected by the failure, and laid the problem squarely at the feet of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. Congressman Mack called the Senator the one man with the power to bring up the bill passed by the House of Representatives. Congressman Mack also expressed frustration with the Senate, stating that he has seen little in the way of legislation come from the Senate, saying that the Senate seems to be "sitting on its hands," and that if the Senate has a better means to accomplish goals, that it should pass bills of its own, rather than simply quashing all motions coming from the House.
