Republican Congress: "Our First Rule Is We Don't Have to Follow Our Rules"

After calling for bills to go through a regular committee process, the Republican bill that would repeal the health care law will not go through a single committee nor be subject to a single hearing. Despite promising a more open amendment process for bills, amendments for the Republican health care repeal will be shut down. After calling for a strict committee attendance list to be posted online, Republicans backpedaled and ditched that from the rules. They promised constitutional citations for every bill but have yet to add that language to any of the early bills they intend to pass during the first week.

WAR IS PEACE
FREEDOM IS SLAVERY
IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH

Regular is irregular
open is closed
public is secret

They can’t add the constitutional citations quite yet, Jerry, they haven’t finished reading it.
