A video that will shock you, but please watch anyway
Because while it's shocking, it's critical you know what's happening. I KNOW you're tired of politics, certainly exhausted by The Shutdown and all discussions on who's responsible, but this...this video, straight from the floor of the House of Representatives, during a session where both Boehner and Cantor were deliberately absent, shows one Representative trying to understand how, suddenly, the right to call for the Shutdown to end, for the government to reopen, has been taken AWAY from him and/or ANY other member of the House EXCEPT the Speaker and/or his designee, surprise, surprise: Eric Cantor. It's beyond scary, but absolutely necessary to watch in order to understand what's really going on in the one part of one branch of our government where the representatives are NOT responsible to their entire State, but to one PORTION of their State.

PS: This video is NOT on autospeak!!!

Thanks. Posted this on Facebook, but I'm sure none of my Rethuglican relatives will watch anything that disagrees with their cherished beliefs.

Is it just me, or do

Democrats have an easier time yelling at their own representatives than Republicans? What are they holding on to, anyway??

Re: Is it just me, or do

It's been many years since I really believed that Democrats are a different party from Republicans. I think they're just putting on a show for us. Cynical much?
