A group of Democrats complain Styrofoam cups in the House cafeteria could contain carcinogens.These folks have gone recycle crazy. Bring a thermos to work, if it bothers you so bad. Why should we have to pay three times more because you're a wimp about styrofoam? Get a grip.
In a letter to Speaker John Boehner (Ohio) and other Republican leaders, the nine Democrats say the Styrofoam cups and other dining materials could hold chemical components that could cause cancer. The Democrats are upset with the switch to Styrofoam from recyclable materials put into place when Democrats ran the House.
The letter asks Boehner to reconsider the switch away from recyclable to polystyrene-based foam containers, and warns that the health of visitors to the Capitol could be compromised.
Even better, get out of politics.
