1:41PM Pelosi seeks pension vote anulled by Corbett B. Daly

WASHINGTON (CBS.MW) -- House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., called for House of Representatives to annul the approval in the House Ways and Means Committee of a bill that would change pension laws. Earlier in the day, House Republicans called the police after Democrats walked out of a House committee vote on pension reforms. Pelosi called it an "indignity" to call the police on the Democrats. The Democrats had objected to a procedural move by committee Chairman Bill Thomas, R-Calif., and tried to delay the vote. While Democrats were out of the room, Thomas pushed the bill through unanimously on a voice vote. A Republican staffer asked Capitol Police to remove the Democrats from the room where they had taken refuge. The Democrats left on their own. The bill approved was a substitute for the Portman-Cardin pension bill, which would alter the way companies calculate pension liabilities and would also reform IRA and 401(k) plans.

Pelosi should know that a non vote does not equal a no vote.

The new Democrat strategy -- "If we can't have our way, we are going to walk out and then whine that you can't do anything without us because that would be undemocratic." Hey, it worked so well for Bob Torricelli.

And you call walking out dignified? Taking your cues from the Texas Democrats, I see.

You snooze, you lose. Pay attention next time...actually, I take that back. Please walk away from as many votes as you can, because every vote you Dems miss helps make this country a better place to live.

A Republican staffer asked Capitol Police to remove the Democrats from the room where they had taken refuge.

Is there a specific reason the staffer asked them to leave, or was he just trying to bother them? If they were disrupting something in that room that the GOP had a right to do, and they wouldn't leave when asked, what's wrong with calling the police?

Pelosi loses yet again, and gets further humiliated by having the cops called on her by Republicans.

I worked at Ways and Means for 6 years prior to the new chairman, in the majority. This does not surprise me one bit, as trouble, instigated by the Dims has been brewing, they have been looking for a fight for many years ,in 1995, there was "The Brawl in the Hall", when former Dim and ranking member, Sam Gibbons, threw a paper wad at Chairman Archer and then the argument went out in the hall, where a Dim grabbed the tie of a Republican. All of this was caught on video tape.

Any questions, please fire away!

Man, I bet you have some wild stories! Are you implying the Dems have been looking for a physical fight? Why would they want that? Although Bill Thomas is a jerk (always has sided with the RINOs in California and is NOT a warm and fuzzy guy) I can't imagine he or one of his staff calling the cops if they didn't think there was a real problem. What's your take on this?

Pelosi like all other rats still in DC have a reality problem.

They still can't believe that they are not in power and don't control congress.

Pelosi is locked in pre Clintoon where the house had control. That went out with the "Throw the Bums" out of congress elections.

These elitist fascist Rats are so arrogant, they still see themselves in control.

I'm not sure at what altitude she's been laying at, bethelgrad, but she probably feels she's been annointed to lay upon high!!!

She's so daft, she probably can't remember laying anything but EGGS!!!
