Dems concerned about protecting committee process


  1. Jer Wright says:

    If the committee process is so very sacred, that we cannot usurp the sacred rules by bypassing the sacred committee process, then why do those very rules allow blasting in the first place?

    This procedural bypass shows exactly how far Speaker Lujan’s power has faded. If he loses this, and the License Law is revoked, the blood in the water will be his, and he won’t survive his next primary. And we may very well see the first Republican majority in the house since early last century.

  2. Dr. J says:

    The headline is not correct, true Democrats would not object to this as the method to do it is firmly established in the House rules and is being followed. It happens rarely, and is ony happening now because the liberals are so attached and dead-set to having illegals treated as citizens, for numerous reasons, all political. The headline should read “Liberals Concerned About Protecting the Committee Process, at all costs (even if it violates House rules), as it advantages them when they want to kill bills and amendments to further their partisan agendas and resist the will of the citizens for their own selfish motives.”

    This type of dishonorable procedural trickery of the Dems is sadly never to be unexpected.

    Yes, because Republicans are never dishonest…

    Come on, Tex, at least be realistic in your criticism.

    This type of dishonorable procedural trickery of the Dems is sadly never to be unexpected.

    However, now that we the citizenry are able to listen to this disreputable subterfuge in real time, without all the filters and typically slanted media spin, it’s easy for us to see that it’s even more despicable than we had known it to be in the past.

  5. Ogler says:

    This is just political posturing and bull, it is entirely disgraceful and dishonest. The House Dems have misused and abused the committee process for decades and now the roosters may be coming home to roost.
