Eleanor Holmes Norton (D) highlighted the partisan contradictions while detailing the drastic effect of the cash crunch on the District government — including schools, health care, services for the disabled and senior programs.

“Democrats, at this critical moment, have abandoned their long-held principles,”
Norton said, calling it “shameful ... to hold the city’s local funds hostage to make a federal point.”
