And how it's hurting his poll numbers.
A few hours ago Buzzfeed posted something that knowing that Pennsylvania voters now know about it must be causing some worry (in Italian: agita, in yiddish: tsuris) for our beleaguered junior senator.
Here it is:
Republican Sen. Pat Toomey, who faces what is expected to be a close race for reelection against Democrat Katie McGinty, has missed over 80% of Senate Budget Committee hearings since 2013, a BuzzFeed News review of hearing transcripts and videos has found.So there's another sliver of his job that he hasn't been doing. And this one for some time.
Toomey, who was appointed to the Senate Committee on the Budget after his election to the Senate in 2010, has touted his spot on the committee as having helped in his efforts to control federal spending. “Pat has used his platform on the Senate Budget Committee to offer several proposals that would balance the federal government’s budget,” his campaign website reads.
