If You’re Losing, Change the Rules of the Game

HuffPost has a story saying that the Republican majority in the House two weeks ago changed the rules so that a so-called “clean” continuing resolution that would re-open the federal government could only be brought to the House for a vote if Majority Leader Eric Cantor is the one doing the bringing.

Uhhh, wasn’t democracy predicated on majority votes, which, if I understand correctly, a clean CR would get in the House right now? Can we stop with the “both sides are guilty” story line now?

Later,
