It's amazing how irrevelant he is, even among his own party. Hoyer, the second in command in the HoR, told Obama to look for the 50 billion in the unspent Stimulus funds. This is hilarious!


Both House leaders said they are weary of introducing entirely new spending measures. "It's accurate that there's spending fatigue, not only on Capitol Hill, but around the country," said Democratic Rep. Steny Hoyer on ABC's This Week. [See which industries give money to Hoyer.]

Hoyer asked the president to look to the $787 billion dollar stimulus package passed last year to finance the new emergency aid request. "There are clearly funds in there that have not been expended," said Hoyer. The White House should "see whether or not there are some available for this more immediate priority than some that may not be quite as immediate."

Steny's not as weak as you think. He's the number two, but it could be argued Pelosi is a mere figurehead. Steny is the guy who sets the day-to-day agenda, what goes up for vote and what does not.
