Speaker-designate John Boehner (R-Ohio) intends to commandeer a swanky office space adjacent to the House floor and build a women's restroom for female lawmakers.
For years, men have had the luxury of using facilities located adjacent to the House floor, just outside the Speaker's lobby. But women have had no such option.

Sounds like a kinder, gentler leadership to me!

Congress is already one big toilet.
i really don’t see problem with this.

If they want to sit there and remove our freedoms inch-by-inch, let ‘em suffer for it.....
Will the female members go to the restroom together? You know, like at a restaurant.
LOL! His momma raised him the right way.
Pelosi probably had a servant to hold a golden chamber pot for her.
That´s solving our problems, alright. ´Off and running....
I don’t see a problem either. Why not do it?
I am one of a large number...and our house only had one bathroom. Fortunately, we did not live in town and the male members of the family could answer Nature’s call outside in Nature if need be...probably not an option in this situation, though.
