The fact that there are Republicans and Democrats in the same room automatically sparks an argument, but regardless of the parties, the rules are the rules. If they’re written, they are real. And if the people/party that drafted them can’t follow them— there’s something clearly wrong.
Representative Weiner isn’t attempting to block the bill, he says this clearly in his statement; his point is that the Republicans DID NOT SUBMIT THEIR PAPER WORK IN ORDER WITH THE RULES OF THE COMMITTEE; rules they submitted and approved.
What’s sad is that it’s obvious the Republicans don’t feel like eating cock today and feel that they think simply by including a piece of paper that this is a working situation. And to further the problem, the Republicans did NOT precipitate the additional statement for which they said would validate their reasoning; it wasn’t provided. Not even the CHAIRMAN has this ‘document’.
The fact is it’s more of a shady ploy to get bills on the floor of congress.
This action by the Republicans from Georgia and Texas are disgustingly arrogant and conniving. They’re clearly attempting to raise other issues on the point of attempting to confuse others in trying to stop asking them about this ‘citing of the constitution’.
The CHAIRMAN for the committee is an dolt; you can hear and watch several times as people correct him, feed him the rules; they might as well have put Kermit the Frog as the Chairman, because he works the same way with a hand up his ass too.
One of the more applauding thing about this video, the interpretation of the committee rules, and further more NOT allowing, or wanting to allow other members to argue points. Flat out disrespecting them.
I applaud representative Weiner for pointing out the errors, rules and citing procedure in a place where the CHAIRMAN should have complete control. And he clearly doesn’t here.
And the representative from Illinois has a valid argument; the bill that’s asking to be presented, and if it’s so important it needs to be changed, It needs to be done in the proper way, the proper manner and by following the rules. And if that means that the Republicans have to go back can eat crow shit, rewrite the document, then so be it, but rules are rules.
This whole thing is a waste of time; a 9 year old kid has enough since to know this is a obtuse argument. Weiner is right, the Republicans are incorrect; fix it, cite the constitution that the bill affects and submit again.
But I don’t think that’s what happened here…
And to be clear, I’m not for, or against this bill; I’m for the rules… and the rules are clearly read, the argument is clear; and if this was a court and was being ruled upon, Republicans would be guilty of flat out stupidity.
…And that beats all.
