For further evidence that the Republican Party is motivated entirely by anti-liberal grievance, here is some unwelcome news out of the Capitol's cafeteria:
When the House returns Monday from a week-long recess, members and staffers will see something that hasn't been in the Capitol for four years: Styrofoam.
In the first move toward phasing out part of Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's (D-Calif.) "Green the Capitol" program, polystyrene cups were reintroduced this week as an option for coffee drinkers in the Capitol Carry-Out, the building's mini-cafeteria.
According to Rep. Dan Lungren, chairman of the Committee on House Administration, the program “is neither cost-effective nor energy-efficient,” despite the fact that it reduced energy and water consumption in Capitol buildings by 23 percent and 32 percent, respectively.
Given the speed with which Republicans moved to end the program, shortly after entering office, I have no doubt that this is just a way to stick it to Democrats and their squishy concern for the environment. Sure, Styrofoam takes 500 years to degrade, but it annoys liberals, so who cares?
