    That's enough for now, but I think you get the drift.

    Re: Boehner demands Senate cancel its vacation

    More dishonest drivel

    The PPAC Act was written with the input of all 535 members of Congress.
    HR 3080 was a trade pact, which couldn't be amended, So was HR 3078 and HR2079

    S 627 was amended. Here's the link to the amendments
    Bill Summary & Status - 112th Congress (2011 - 2012) - S.627 - All Congressional Actions with Amendments - THOMAS (Library of Congress)

    HR 1473 dealt with the highly partisan issue of "To amend the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States to make a technical correction relating to stainless steel single-piece exhaust gas manifolds"

    To make it even funnier, HR 1473 is itself an amendment to a prior piece of legislation

    There are FIVE versions of HR 4!!!

    There are FOUR versions of H J Res 48!!

    HR 4314 went through committees where it was subject to amendments

    Yeah, we get the drift. You've got nothing

    So what, it was a bill passed by both houses with no amendments, which was the subject of the discussion.
    HR 3080 was a trade pact, which couldn't be amended, So was HR 3078 and HR2079
    So what. Trade bills were not excluded from the original discussion.

    You are correct on this one.

    HR 1473 dealt with the highly partisan issue of "To amend the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States to make a technical correction relating to stainless steel single-piece exhaust gas manifolds"

    What the hell are you babbling about???? HR 1473 was the Department of Defense and Full-Year Continuing Appropriations Act, 2011, hardly a bill on tariffs,

    There are FIVE versions of HR 4!!!
    So what? The final version was passed by both houses with no amendments.
    There are FOUR versions of H J Res 48!!
    So what? The final version was passed by both houses with no amendments.

    HR 4314 went through committees where it was subject to amendments
    So what? I claimed that bills were frequently passed by both houses with no amendments. I never claimed that no amendments were added in committee before it was passed by both houses.

    Yeah, we get the drift. You've got nothing
    Total fail on your part. That's what happens when you jump into a dispute between posters that you know nothing about.

    Hope you learned a lesson. By the way, I noticed you didn't mention the Healthcare Reform Act. Couldn't you think of any snarky excuses??

    I had a feeling you'd display your ignorance.

    No, none of these were passed with no amendment. That's absurd.

    The amendment were simply made at the committee level, or in an informal process to create a "manager's amendment" or some other process. Then the ENTIRE BILL was replaced (technically - amended!) to reflect those changes. I explained how this works earlier - remember "amendment in the nature of a substitute?"

    Seriously, did you really believe that these bills were simply swallowed whole without any changes by the other chamber? That's ridicuous. You simply don't know how the process works and you aren't willing to figure it out.

    This is where you completely fail. Seriously, Gill, it all comes down to a lame technicality?

    No. Go back in the thread and see for yourself.

    Here's the bottom line - Gill claimed that one house routinely passes bills from the other house without making any changes. That's bull****.
