And That’s Just the Way It Is
May 5, 2010
Ever wonder who speaks the most days on the House floor. The Congressional Chronicle tracks this. Just click on Congress in the Video Library and it shows the members who have spoken the most. We only count one appearance per day since many members may speak multiple times on the same day. In the 111th Congress, the current Congress, the House has been in 211 days.
Rep. Poe delivers a one-minute speech practically every day. His topics vary from immigration, to Israel, the death of Dr. Height, and local issues of Houston. To bring attention to his remarks, he closes each speech with the phrase, “And that’s just the way it is.”
Tune in C-SPAN whenever the House convenes and you will hear Rep. Poe saying “that’s just the way it is” in the first fifteen minutes of the House session. Check out the appearances of other members through the Congressional Chronicle in the C-SPAN Video Library.
