White Stripes Song Quoted by U.S. Congresswoman
Speaking to opposing politicians, Democratic Congresswoman Donna Edwards quoted The White Stripes’ “Effect & Cause” in a debate about the possibility of a U.S. government shutdown last week.
“This one goes out to our young people and our seniors and our service members and federal workers who stand to be affected by a government shutdown,” Edwards said. “It’s a lesson for our Republican colleagues courtesy of The White Stripes.”
If only more politicians listened to the wisdom of Jack White, all the world’s problems could be solved.
