Oh, look, the kid’s table is acting up again;
Rebellious Democrats shut down the House’s legislative work on Wednesday, staging a sit-in on the House floor and refusing to leave until they secured a vote on gun control measures. Exasperated Republicans were forced to recess while cutting off cameras that showed the protest.
I guess putting them in “time out” didn’t work
“No bill, no break,” shouted Democrats, who demanded that Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., keep the House in session through its planned weeklong recess next week to debate and vote on gun legislation.
What a spectacle, and on the House floor no less.
Rules, decorum, procedures, when you want something really bad, don’t let those get in your way.
I am reminded of the 100’s of bills the House passed that were DOA on Harry Reid’s desk, never placed before the Senate for a vote. Now this same party is getting some of their own, and they don’t like it one bit.
Ryan said Wednesday that House leaders were “waiting to see what the Senate does before proceeding” on gun legislation, including a possible compromise that Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, is seeking.
But, but, we want to vote on it now, why won’t those meany Republicans let us vote on it now.
Democrats, behaving in ways even their parents wouldn’t put up with.
