I'd suspect that too. Don't they have an agreement with the House (long term one too) to do exactly that?

It's not like CSpan gets to do what it wants.

You should send this to Rush and Sean immediately and get them on board.

THE SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE IS RESPONSIBLE FOR TURNING OFF THE LIGHTS AND MIC! (sorry for shouting..LOL).

CSPAN only broadcasts when the house is in session and it was NANCY that plugged the plug.

Just got the info from Boehner’s office.

They should do it at night. March down the streets with torches.

The end result will be the same, but the images would be so cool.

Just emailed Boehner’s office. Please keep us informed. My wife suggested a good protest would be for every American to light candles every night (front porch or windows) to protest Pelosi’s obstruction of the vote and the darkening of the House chamber. Does anyone have any other suggestions?

Unfortunately, the House of Representatives meets and does business at the whim of Queen Nancy.

She has made it clear she has absolute power over the House.

The Republicans should stay and meet every day and raise a stink over Pelosi’s shameless tactic of holding citizens hostage to high gas prices and denying what at least 75% of what the voters want. Drilling and pumping.

She is a disgrace, as are the Democrats and the Republicans that kowtow to her whims.

CSPAN can only show what it is permitted to show. The Speake (Pelosi)has full control of cameras.

Actually, this could mark the turning point in the presidential election, no matter how hard John McCain tries to lose. Only people who aren't affected by the price of gasoline should be happy now. This just adds two or three weeks to the 5 years we have to wait for oil from ANWR.

Good move tactically for the Repubs since they can get air time without the ‘Rats doing anything. It is to their advantage to NOT pass a comprehensive energy bill until after the November elections.

I was just thinking. There are no Dems in the house? What a perfect opportuntity for a tea party. The Republicans ought to bolt the doors and not let any of them back in until a vote is taken on the grounds...outside. While there they could do a little remodeling...moving desks...the speakers podium etc.

213-212 means 10 people did not vote. Or, maybe they can vote “present” now, when they don’t want to take a position or aggravate a donor.

Not sure, but they have folks that do nothing but cover the congress, so my guess is that if we make enough noise, they will have the entire tape available to show!!

Please stop the obstruction of the Democratic process and turn the lights back on in the House. Your actions are becoming one of an occupation and not one of representation. Americans have the right to drill for their own oil.

That would be fun, but against ‘house rules’....LOL..You want the Queen Bee to ‘impeach’ the entire minority?

LOL

That might actually be fun...LOL

I would love to start a ‘virtual march’ to the steps of Capitol Hill! Wish someone with techie knowledge could set up a webpage where we all take up pitchforks and head to ‘virtual’ Washington!

That would be cool!!

Why aren’t the Congresspeople calling Rush, Sean and Fox from the floor?

I’m sure they have cellphones. If Rush got a call from a congressperson live, he/she would be on.

You are quick, I was just getting ready to post the same thing. I saw the thread and turned on CSPAN to see the gang of 10 (or so) talking about the bipartisan energy bill that Nancy and Harry will not allow a vote on.

Nancy and Harry sure are an embarrassment to the party....well, to the country.
