Bartenders close to the capitol have told local reporters that members of Congress are keeping themselves busy during the government shutdown by partying and drinking, and generally having a great big knees up.

“I don’t think the public would be happy to know that they are actually enjoying this time.” one bartender at Hawk and Dove bar on Pennsylvania Avenue told WUSA9 News.

The barman added that members of Congress have been “cutting loose” all week, and started off with a party on the first night of the shutdown.

“There was a private party upstairs with a few Congress people and senators here that night.” the bartender stated.

WUSA9 also spoke to another bartender from a separate establishment who verified that members of Congress had been dropping into his bar all week, including on the day of the shutdown.

The bar manager, who wished to remain anonymous, stated “There were congressmen, there were lobbyists and staffers…we stayed pretty busy. They were definitely eating and passing the time before the vote.”

The news station also published a photo (see screenshot above) of House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer posing for a picture with actress Selma Hayek in a bar on the second night of the shutdown.

Last week on the night of the shutdown, several reporters indicated that members of Congress were drinking before and after the vote.

Perhaps this is why congress has an approval rating lower than that of dog poop, hemorrhoids, witches, cockroaches, the IRS, toenail fungus and even the most evil disgusting thing of all… Wall Street.

  1. This is the insanity of the United States. You can be stopped and tested by police for the appearance of driving under the influence. There are no checks and balances on politicians who appear drunk or high. They are driving or blocking legislation that can harm millions. We need independent physical and mental testing of the people running the country. A simple start would be breathalyzers in the House and Senate. Blow an .05 and you can’t speak or vote.

  2. Enjoy yourselves now jackoffs. Your day of reckoning is close at hand. You WILL have to answer for your injustices.
