"Sassy with Massie!" Remember that phrase the next time you grow frustrated with lawmakers in Washington.
Capitol Hill can operate at a frenetic pace, or it can move slow as molasses. It depends on who you ask. But Rep. Thomas Massie is trying to inject some lightheartedness into things on the Hill. The libertarian-leaning Kentucky Republican often takes to Twitter to highlight his thoughts in a hilarious way, ending tweets with the catchy hashtag, #sassywithmassie.
He also uses it to respond to criticism.

Rep. Massie has formerly expressed discontent with the GOP-proposed American Health Care Act, believing that, while Obamacare isn’t ideal, the Republican alternative introduces a whole new set of issues. So, what better way to vent than to "sass" people out for it?

We could all use Massie as our backup man.
