Can’t allow the Democrats to speak on the floor of the US House, because “In Session” means a prayer and a gavel hitting the podium prohibiting anyone (especially one of those pesky Democrats who want to see progress in America!) from actually speaking when In Session!
From under the YouTube video above:
This morning, Speaker Pro Tempore Jeff Denham, under orders from Speaker Boehner, refused to allow Assistant Democratic Leader James E. Clyburn to speak on the floor and call for the payroll tax cut conference committee to get to work.
It’s time for House Republicans to immediately begin working with Democrats on a long-term agreement to extend the payroll tax cut for 160 million Americans—and avoid taking us to the point of brinkmanship once again.
Americans are out of work and we’ve got work to do, but Republicans are out of session. We can’t wait.
SHORTER BONER: “No tax cuts for you Middle Class! Tax cuts are only for the rich who don’t create jobs when there’s a black man living in the White House!”. See?
