Congress Returns To Capitol Hill After The Weekend

Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) recently went after Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg’s leadership on the Ohio train derailment crisis.

“He’s not ready for the responsibility he has. He was a fine mayor, from what I understand, but the position he’s got really would be better served by a person who’s managed a large enterprise, a state, or something of the scale he’s now dealing with,” Romney said, per the Hill.

A number of Republicans have criticized Buttigieg over the derailment crisis, with some, such as Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Ted Cruz (R-TX), pondering why Buttigieg still has a job. In response, the Biden administration has stood by him and countered that critics were peddling false narratives.

Buttigieg has admitted that he “could have spoken out sooner” about the incident.
