Thanks for the heads up.. what is Dingell doing? It seems every time an opponent comes up he interrupts their time and uses it to discuss parliamentary procedure.

Watching clowns is always fun!

Sadly, it's clear that the Democrats are trying to force the bill through. Dingell doesn't want Republicans to even raise their voice in a question, so the Republicans are objecting to everything.

Dingell SAYS Republicans will get their say if they just wait, but I believe this House has made a practice of keeping Republican views out of site...

The circus goes on.

The Dems are railroading the time with their concocted stream of Unanimous Consent Requests, the Rule for which is being abused by the Dems here in order to get their message out without using any of their Time For Debate on The Floor.

What a bunch of completely rotten, lawless bastards!

Nancy Pelosi will make the Blue Dogs walk the plank. She cares mainly about jamming through her agenda . . if the Blue Dogs don’t win re-election, oh well, they were expendable.

This will all be for naught, because the Senate will totally change the bill. Sen. Coburn is demanding that the 1500 pages be read aloud during the Senate Session, which will set back the bill another few weeks, if not months.

Anybody else in the work force in this country would be fired for disrupting business and creating a loss of revenue via a loss of production.

Only in Congress would this type of usurping of rules and common sense be allowed to go on.

The chairman is probably going to go batty trying to deal with all that is going on. The chair is giving an admonishment to all every few minutes or so.

This has been the scam all along. It is a Marxist takeover, under the RUSE and LIE of health care. It is time to rise up and put them all out of business in the 2010 election. These fascists care nothing about America, only ruling over its ashes.

Without objection.. so ordered.. (he yells "so ordered" over objections.)

He is not allowing for any objections per the House Parliamentary rules. He is ignoring all objections.

He is calling the “Republicans” out on the extended oratory rule, but let the Dems have their own extended oratory. I wonder how many of the Republican statements will actually be on record or will he strike all as extended oratory?

I wasn't talking about the pro-liberty republicans. They're not being allowed to speak. I'm talking about all the rabid left wing jesters hogging the camera and begging for votes for their next election.
BTW, you're suppose to think "We care about you. We really, really do. This is for your own good."

After all statements are made they then will vote to open voting on the floor, take objections to the vote, and if no objections extend debate (per Dingell’s opinion) ....

Dinglle is now penalizing the Republicans for all statements time (something he didn’t do to the Dems).
