Yes, There Was a Nickelback Debate in Congress Yesterday

During a debate about prison gerrymandering, the practice of counting inmates as residents of correctional facilities and not their home districts, Pocan stated that only four out of 77,000 public comments were in support.

“That’s probably about the percent of people who think Nickelback is their favorite band in this country. It’s pretty low,” said Pocan.

“Why would you criticize one of the greatest bands of the 90’s,” Davis shot back.
