Norton calls the GOP's resolution awful, particularly the part that eliminates funding for D.C.'s needle exchange programs. Norton says Congress, which for nearly a decade banned D.C. from funding such programs, is responsible for the District having the highest HIV/AIDS rate in the country.
"The reason ours is so high is because we couldn't do needle exchange," Norton says.
She says the resolution would also eliminate funding for abortions. It would also reduce payments for the D.C. court system, WASA, and would severely cut funding for Metro.
Norton says there is a silver lining.
"Finally, people are understanding that these people are out to get us," Norton says. "I mean that's the only way to put it, they're out to get us and we can't just sit here and take it."
Norton says she will introduce some amendments Monday to block these moves and says she's working with the Senate and the White House.
