GOP Sens. John Cornyn (Texas) and Chuck
Grassley (Iowa) stuffed themselves with some delicious BBQ in
celebration of the first-ever “Meat Monday.” Roll Call says, “The
Senators hosted the lunch party in defiance of the Agriculture
Department’s short-lived flirtation with the “Meatless Monday” movement.
Cornyn’s office confirmed they picked up 52 orders of food from the
Hill Country BBQ, including beef brisket, ribs, and sausage. Aides to
Cornyn and Grassley, both representing major agricultural states, chowed
down on the barbecue.” More from Roll Call’s Heard on the Hill.
