Is this a new process DeMint is talking about or an existing one?
If they have a process where legislation is pending and a time frame for objections exists. And that's clearly communicated to both members of the house and the public. Then that's not secret.
And you could conceivably say the absence of objections in a reasonable time frame is itself a consensus vote.
I think they’ve doing that for some time. I doubt the new Congress will change much.
That's a cool idea for a legislative process. Too bad it doesn't exist. This is a good explanation for the process.
