    Pelosi Erases Gingrich's Long-Standing Fairness Rules

    Pelosi Reverses House Fairness Rules - HUMAN EVENTS

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi plans to re-write House rules today to ensure that the Republican minority is unable to have any influence on legislation. Pelosi’s proposals are so draconian, and will so polarize the Capitol, that any thought President-elect Obama has of bipartisan cooperation will be rendered impossible before he even takes office.

    Pelosi’s rule changes -- which may be voted on today -- will reverse the fairness rules that were written around Newt Gingrich’s “Contract with America.”
    and now the dems will learn how as bad as having the Republicans controlling 2 branches it may end up turning out worse after giving both branches to the Dems

    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?

    The article is clearly being sensationalist, and I would be extremely surprised if any of the proposals seriously limit the minority power. The US is in bad shape and the democrats are entirely in control. The Democratic Congress already has historically low approval ratings, and they've barely begun to bungle the economic crisis. If the dems keep their congressional majority in the next election cycle it will be more surprising than Bush's second term was.

    The problem is that the senate/house were run exactly that way during the last big Democrat majority, so I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if they passed the whole thing through.

    I think the Dems are legislating their way back out of power, but after the last 2 years or so, nothing would surprise me.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
