Stephen Colbert Talks Immigrant Labor on Capitol Hill

Hosted by

With no pre-election consensus on government spending, Congress has cancelled floor votes for the rest of this week to work on preventing agencies from shutting down. But a House committee took time today to hear testimony from Stephen Colbert. The comedian tossed out his prepared testimony in favor of a series of suggestive one-liners. But among the jokes was a serious message following Colbert's day of service as a farm laborer, in response to a United Farm Workers program called "Take Our Jobs." David Corn is Washington Editor for Mother Jones and columnist for PoliticsDaily.com.
