Incoming House Speaker John Boehner is tearing down the Parliamentarian's office to build female members of Congress a restroom.
Currently, only male lawmakers are afforded the ability to walk steps from the House floor to use the restroom. Women must walk across Statuary Hall to the Lindy Claiborne Boggs room, but the 71 women who will serve in the 112th Congress will be able to walk out the Democratic side of the chamber straight to the bathroom.
Why didn't Pelosi do this? It took her over three years just to pass the Potty Parity Act, which was supposed to ensure that this was done back in March. Now, it is getting close to a year since then, and it still she still hadn't done anything to get it built. This type of inefficiency is exactly why the people don't want to see DC in charge of anything.
