If you or I wanted to sit-in on the SuperCommittee Debt Reduction meetings, I doubt we could get in. I’m told a member of Congress gains entry for them, but we never hear who the offending congressional member is. Code Pink shows up at every controversial get-together on Capitol Hill – probably a guest of Nancy Pelosi. In fact, Code Pink was there today as well as the unidentified woman.
The woman is charged with disrupting Congress.
As members of the committee took their seats around the dais and co-chair Sen. Patty Murray prepared to call the meeting to a start, a Code Pink protestor jumped out of his seat holding a sign, drawing the attention of television cameras in the room.
“This committee is not democratic,” the demonstrator said. “I speak on behalf of the 99 percent who are occupied. We are the people who are not being heard by this committee.”
