Operation Bust Their Chops

Operation Bust Their Chops

Privately, the liberal Democrats behind an aggressive new legislative strategy targeting House Republicans are calling it “Operation Bust Their Chops,” according to the Hotline. “That was the actual title that Rep. Alan Grayson, D-FL, used when he announced the plan during an appearance late last month at the closed-door strategy summit in Pikesville, Md., according to attendees. Democrats are developing what they call an “amendment bank,” ready-to-go Democratic attachments for House GOP bills on any number of topics—education, transportation, veterans’ affairs, or whatever—that they believe could force some Republicans into potentially embarrassing political boxes.”
