More Burr Despicableness

Sen. Burr Was The Objecter Who Forced Committee Hearings Off Schedule (VIDEO) | TPMDC:
"With a few words Wednesday - 'I would have to object' - N.C. Sen. Richard Burr joined an angry Republican pushback to the nation's sweeping health care overhaul.
Burr used a parliamentary maneuver to derail an Armed Services Committee hearing for which commanders had traveled from South Korea and Hawaii to discuss the Pentagon's needs for the next year.

It was one of several hearings on issues ranging from homeless veterans to police trainers in Afghanistan that were upturned by Republican tactics to slow the workings of the Senate."
