House GOP Leadership Finds Getting A Majority Of Votes Too Difficult So They Hold A Sham Voice Vote Instead

GOP leadership “didn’t want to stay in session long enough to set up a simple majority vote”. I’m sorry if doing their damn job is too inconvenient for them.

But hey…bi-partisanship!

Republican leadership worked with their Democratic counterparts to orchestrate the ploy. As members returned to the floor when the House came into session, they discovered that the bill had already passed. Nearly all of them were surprised.

No one had the chance to vote no, no one had a chance to vote yes.

Boehner likes to talk about the House of Representatives being “The People’s House”. Well today he and his leadership team broke in and trashed the place. Remember this the next time he or Cantor complain out how Obama is lawless.

But yay GOP, right?

Sure.  Remember:  If you hobbits would just vote Republican, the GOP will fix everything.

Well, at least the fix will be in.  Good and hard.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. Cantor is my Rep and I loathe him so much. This vote, and others like it, could make the sideline pretty appealing this fall, if crap like this is what I’ve got to look forward to.

  2. You have to look closely at the big “L” libertarian on the ticket. The guy VA ran in 2012? Not a libertarian. If you look at his positions, he was obviously a liberal plant to siphon votes away from the GOP. To be fair, the GOP picked the worst possible candidate to oppose O-care.
