Fear of cooperation

House Rules.jpg

A  cabal of right-wing representatives fears a change to House rules that would enable a change from 60 to a simple majority of 51 votes to “blast” a bill from committee for debate on the floor.  Rules Committee Chair Derek Skees (R-Nutcase) shut down the committee before a vote could take place on the proposed change. He said it would create an “oligarchy” of Democrats and moderate Republicans.  Big word for Derek; he’s probably confusing it with “bipartisanship.”
