Jeb Bush Smacks Down Debbie Wasserman Schultz During House Budget Hearing
When former Florida Governor Jeb Bush testified before a House Budget Committee hearing Friday morning, he faced aggressive questioning from a familiar face: Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL), a fellow Floridian. After a lengthy lecture directed at the former governor, the congressman asked a confrontational question about a particular bill he supported during his tenure, Bush shot back and defended his record.
Rep. Wasserman Schultz spent four minutes berating Bush for his decision as governor to use tax dollars to lure to Florida the private research institute Scripps, as opposed to public education or healthcare. Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) interrupted her remarks, asking “Is the gentlelady going to give gentleman time to respond?”
