So much for GOP’s new House rules
It says HERE that the sweeping new rules adopted by Republicans in the U.S. House are not exactly written in stone.
After calling for bills to go through a regular committee process, the bill that would repeal the health care law will not go through a single committee. Despite promising a more open amendment process for bills, amendments for the health care repeal will be all but 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 early bills.
Oh, well. As the old saying goes, rules are made to be broken.
