Timestamp 0:23 is the place where the Chairman is citing something... to me it is sounding like House Resoluton 368.. maybe I am mis-hearing? Gotta check the Journal, the offical transcript of this scene.

Not a political type but it seems to me they did the same in the House as was done in the senate where everything goes through one man, Harry Reid.

Probably not a good thing but they probably felt they had no choice as it seems reid is the guy causing all the problems.

If it be really House Resolution 368, then I am wondering why Rep. Hollen is not right then bringing up and Quoting outloud the actual Text of H.R. 368 in order to show clearly what a baffoon this Speaker Pro Temp (the Chairman here) really is and just how the Speaker is trying to do pure majic and mis-direction?

Something is very weird, strange, egmatic, and mysterious about this whole scene.

It appears to me that this Speaker Pro Temp is doing nothing more that pure dictorial decree without any law whatsoever behind it.

And even the Parlimentarians there are in on it...

Very strange, very dangerous.

Further more the Speaker Pro Temp's citation of H.R. 368 is notable in that H.R. 368 has not even ever been passed in a vote..

again from Thomas.gov

The Speaker Pro Temp this many many times clearly says, House Resolution 368
House Resolution 368
House Resolution 368
House Resolution 368
House Resolution 368

The Speaker Pro Temp's doing Magic.. Smoke, Mirrors, and Magical Mis-direction.. and apparently Rep Hollen is not challenging that Magic in the least in any counter-spell.

Smoke and Mirrors, folks.

Anyone who has ever paid any attention to the House of Rep. is well aware that the rules are simply a sham. They pretend that there is rule of law but it's a show and nothing more. This kind of thing has been going on for years.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 47916277


Yes, both houses of congress change the rules all the time. This is likely in retaliation for Harry Reid being the only one allowed to do this in the Senate.

About time the House did this!
