Shutdown over: What next?
Totally shameful. GOP changed rules.
I am speechless! How low low can congress get? The GOP altered standing rules! I can't believe this crap! Before any member of the house could call for any member to call for a vote to open the government. Now the GOP changed it so that only Republicans can do it. This is treason. When confronted they couldn't even answer the questions! You can see the guy looks embarrassed.
I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS HAPPENED!!!!!!!!!!!
FROM THE ARTICLE BECAUSE I'm so mad my typing above is way off
In the hours working up to the government shutdown on Sept. 30, Republican members of the House Rules Committee were developing a strategy to keep a clean CR off the floor, guaranteeing the government would remain shut down.
Though at least 28 House Republicans have publicly said they would support a clean CR if it were brought to the floor -- enough votes for the government to reopen when combined with Democratic support -- a House rule passed just before the shutdown essentially prevents that vote from taking place.
Comment I like
