Not many folks alive today that can remember a time when that phrase wasn't a complete oxymoron.
pfffft. pfffft. pfffft.
See the purple tie, folks? This is SEIU’s bill...look for the union label.
Boehner is on FIRE....
Wanna bet this doesn’t make tommorrow’s CBS/NBC/ABC Evening News celebrating the bill’s passage???
Go Boehner! Giving ‘em hell. Good for him!
Why wasn’t the 72 hour clock reset after changes?
He is telling them off.
Boehner asked the speaker for a roll-call vote instead of electronic votes. Trying to get them on the record more plainly, I guess. Denied.
disgrace judge, alcee hastings saying they make the rules up as they go along.
“Rules, we don’t need no stinkin’ rules”.
Real classy, huh?
Boehner is doing a pretty fine job. Can't believe that they won't entertain a motion for a floor vote. Just goes to show you how disgraceful this process has become.
Yes, GO Boehner! I think he is at the verge of tears. He is speaking for America.
Even the President said they needed COURAGE! I guess the House Dems didn’t get the message!
No turning back!
A revolution is coming...
I think it’s not the right time to ask.
Indeed but my impression is that when he asked for a motion to recommit, all will be on record and held accountable.
Boehner: "Mr. Speaker, will you grant my request for a call of the roll?"
Boehner: "Will you grant my request for a call of the roll?"
Speaker: "The answer will be given at the time of the request...which is not now"
I’m lovin’ the Boehn!
He is doing a good job. Yes.
I am disgusted by 99% of them.
They’re dirty evil cowards.
OBey is an angry old man
Please Boehner tell the America - resist. do NOT comply with this illegitimate legislation
I don’t see a Motion to Recommit coming...
“Shame on this body. Shame on each and every one of you!
We break the ties of history in this chamber! This bill will be the last straw for the American people. We will have shattered the bonds of trust.”
I feel the same way Tony. I will fight for the rest of my life against these communists.
This is the Peoples house.
And the moment you forget it is the moment you lose it.
I’m so proud of the House Republicans tonight. They may have created much of the mess we have what with 2006/2008 elections...but they are working toward redemption.
God Bless the USA
Indeed, a revolution is coming.
Oh my. Can you blame them? Imagine putting your lives on the line and coming home to this traitorous charade.
Please thank them for their service and let them know that I vow to keep fighting here at home on their behalf.
Will of the PEOPLE!
Shame on you! Shame on ALL OF YOU who substitute YOUR will for the will of your fellow countrymen!
By our actions today we...break our trust with America...if we pass this bill there will be no turning back...in a democracy you can only defy the will of the people so long...I beg you, do not further strike at the heart of this institution...
Why do we even know that Obama is watching basketball and Michelle is shopping?
Where are their PR people.
I think they are giving us the middle digit.
Yep - me, too!!!
What happend to the motion?
OMG...it must be Pelosi
“You can only ignore the will of the people for so long, and get away with it... You surely shall not strike with impunity.”
Pelosi walking in, here comes the queen.
I’m proud of them, too, but wish Boeher would have held for a little longer. Lots of applause for who? Is it Pelosi?
Duh? The HCR bill redefines the Trinity?
Reflect the will of the people!
Who is the applause for Boehner?!?!
Who are they cheering for?
I can’t breathe right now
And some of those staff were Dems and/or had worked for Dems and at least one went and worked for Dems after.
For awhile it seemed many Dems were deserting him but he apparently has had them taken care of in one way or another.
“... the dignity of the house.”
BULL ... whatever “dignity” the house ever had as been DESTROYED by the Democrats.
House going rogue. Applause, applause. Pelosi shows up.
