I just called and said "There's a Republican revolt going on int the House Chamber and I wasn't seeing much coverage of it." I got a run around on it. Was told several times "There are no cameras on now. Cameras are not allowed." I objected, politely, that the story could still be covered.

He seemed mildly irritated that I would question that and asked if I wanted to talk to (name garbled) and I said yes. Got a phone tree that led to leaving a recorded message. I did...

"There's a Republican revolt going on in the House Chamber. I understand that the cameras are turned off. You can still cover the story. Thank you."

“Democrats did not have a chance to defend themselves.”"

..and when do the Democrats give the landholders a chance to 'defend themselves' and have their representatives vote on the land they own. The dems are acting like these federal lands are theirs. BS, this is public land, ie OUR LAND! We should have a voice through our representatives what happens on that land.

“Do we have anyone Freeper in Washington DC who can get down with a video cam and make an internet report about the HOUSE REPUBLICANS RAISING CAIN???

The first one down there will have their report distributed all over the net.

We will need some volunteer writers too,

We need pictures and can not rely on the MSM to provide the real news anymore.

Perhaps it is time to sign up Freeper Reportors”

Great idea. Set up a web cam and cover the chamber and speaking.

Pinging kristinn! Any Washington DC Freepers available? I know you’re zealous.

This storm shows that our leaders are dangerously delusional. I do not mean ‘delusional’ in a pejorative sense, rather in a literal sense.

Time and again in the last few years we have seen politicians who do not seem to have the traditional sense of self preservation. When an issue such as illegal immigration or ‘drill now’ comes along they actually don’t realise that they must abandon business as usual and do as the people insist. The poll numbers on drill now are high enough to scare the very stones in the street and yet Pelosi et al; actually think they can blow it off.

Poor Huey Long must be spinning in his grave.

I feel your pain. The only thing that will save us is that my husband get a promotion to CW3 soon then in a few more months he get a small increase in pay for being over 20 years in (I think that number is right).

Funny how when you realize there might be an increase in pay you start planning how to save and pay off bills.

Hubby drives a diesel at $4.69 a gallon but he gets 500 to 600 miles on a tank. At that price though, we stay home. Haven’t seen the grandkids since May.

You can thank the environmentalists for the price of diesel. Diesel used to be cheaper than regular gas, but then they mandated ultra-low-sulfur diesel, which added considerably to the cost

I am operating on what’s left of my memory about the deal back in the early 80s when C-Span coverage was negotiated. I recall (foggily) that the cameras in the House would stay on even as the day’s session ended, so long as Members were speaking, but would go off when the Congress went into a recess like the summer vacation.

You may recall that Newt and others in the minority during the 80s took full advantage of those cameras being on in the evenings after everyone had left .. they would go on and put out their positions to an empty, but C-Span covered, chamber.

Apparently, yesterday Speaker Pelosi closed down the House, went into summer recess, and turned off the lights. I really don’t think this was C-span’s judgment one way or the other. They probably are doing no more than conforming to the terms of their agreement with Congress.

The dem hearings were held while the Congress was in session; however dumba$$ they may have been, they were ‘official business’ during a session of Congress.
