    No governing body can operate without them. It's simply impossible. To claim that they violate the First Amendment (especially when the power to establish these rules is enshrined in the Constitution) is absurd.
    They might have Rule of Order but hey can speech there mind any bloody time they wish with out worring about being censored over it. Yes Article 1 Section 5 does give Congress power to set there rules but that doesn't mean that they follow them, guess you don't know much about History of Congress thru early 18th up to early 20th Century.

    As for the Diet you recall these folks the one you see always having fist fights.

    Wilson SHOULD apologize on the floor of the House. Failing that, a vote is completely appropriate.
    Don't you think that if you guys do this even the good Republicans will turn in sympathy for the "jerk."

    Why are you compounding Wilson dirt bag act with these lies?

    The whole concept of having rules of order is to maintain order. I agree that they shouldn't censure this guy and should probably just let it drop, but having such rules are necessary and in no way unconstitutional.

    And this has what to do with it being unconstitutional or violating free speech or whatever? You seem to be confusing the occasional breach of decorum with not having any rules of order.

    I think you're thinking of the Korean National Assembly. But the same thing applies to them: breaches of decorum are not synonymous with lack of rules of order.

    It will successfully keep people focused on that incident, so they don't focus on what the president actually said about the health care plan.

    I mean when have our representatives in Washington ever put the issues above partisan politics?
    Yeh, Wilson became the poster child for partisan politics when he expelled that disgusting phrase against the President.

    I already explained this to you twice. Either your reading comprehension is lacking, or you know you have been refuted and are just repeating a position you know to be refuted, which is, in essence, lying.

    Do you know what the SAVE program is ?

    USCIS - SAVE

    If there is no legal way to determine residency prior to the delivery of care / benefits, then illegals will get them.

    The fact that the bill "claims" they won't, is a lie, because the provision to enforce that claim has been voted out.

    No Enforcement Provision = No Denial of Care

    NO!! Wilson was the liar on this one factcheck right from the bill " a generic nondiscrimination clause that said insurers may not discriminate with regard to "personal characteristics extraneous to the provision of high quality health care or related services."
