Thune Says Democrats Misusing Lame-Duck Session

MITCHELL, SD -
Republican Senator John Thune says he's surprised the U.S. Senate is staying so busy in the final days of the session.
He says some of the issues should be carried over to the next session of Congress and shouldn't be taken up in a lame-duck session.
Republicans gained some Senate seats in the November election and regained control of the House.
Thune said November election results showed a rejection of Democratic proposals and to work on those bills now is "flouting" the election outcome.
