Dems Plan To Cut GOP From Legislative Discourse
Coming soon to a Congress near you: Bipartisanship, Democratic style. Democrats are now planning on using House rules to prevent Republicans for offering alternative measures to the agenda being set forth by Democrats. This is to assure that their agenda will pass, as opposition will be short-circuited. And Pelosi calls this bipartisanship.
It is not surprising that after pledging to run the most ethical (or did they say ethically challenged: see Rep. Conyers, D-Mich.) and bipartisan House, that they should renege on such promises not that they have been handed a majority in Congress.
What is that old saying, "Power corrupts; absolute power corrupts absolutely."
The Democrats intention to use House rules to force their Socialist agenda through Congress is not really that surprising. They claim to be torn between "allowing" Republicans to have some say in proposed legislation, or cutting them out completely to prevent Republicans from blocking their agenda.
In other words, politics as usual, except there may be more hostility towards Republicans as they are forced to take the backseat as the new minority party.
It looks like we'll be in for a wild ride during the next Congress. Especially over the first few weeks. Should be fun.
