You know, I could have sworn that Obama campaigned on bringing a new kind of politics to Washington. Who knew that what he meant was a tyrannical Pelosi regime. Not only has she shut Democrats out of the normal bill-crafting process- not to mention completely excluding Republicans from the Stimulus- but now comes the news that she planned on changing the normal rules of Congress to dis-allow the minority party from even proposing legislation.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi plans to re-write House rules today to ensure that the Republican minority is unable to have any influence on legislation. Pelosi’s proposals are so draconian, and will so polarize the Capitol, that any thought President-elect Obama has of bipartisan cooperation will be rendered impossible before he even takes office...
There seems to be no news of this since January. Any one know of any updates?
And anyone care to bet that had the Republicans been in charge and proposed such a rule-change that the MSM would have been so dis-interested?
When the Republicans do come back to power in Congress, I hope they very loudly proclaim that they will be following the rules initiated by Pelosi.
