House Speaker Nancy Pelosi recently launched an initiative to “Green the Capitol” by selling more locally grown food and requiring the purchase of carbon offsets. In a press conference today, House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-OH) vented:
You know, we’re buying carbon credits. It reminds me of the Catholic Church in the Middle Ages when you could buy indulgences. I like the food that we had before. I like real food, food that I can pronounce the name of!
