James Clyburn D-S.C: Senate thinks it’s ‘House of Lords’

The third-ranking House Democrat said Monday the Senate thinks of itself as a “House of Lords” that happens to be out of touch with voters. Majority Whip James Clyburn’s D-S.C. remarks are one of the most significant public shots taken at the Senate by a Democratic leader since healthcare negotiations between the two chambers stalled.”[Senators] tend to see themselves as a House of Lords and they don’t seem to understand that those of us that go out there every two years stay in touch with the American people,” he said in an interview with Fox News Radio. “We tend to respond to them a little better.”
