In a completely unprecedented fashion, House Democrats have used their power as the majority party to shut out floor amendments from the minority party on spending legislation.Check out the video of Rep. Cantor on the House floor.
Right at the beginning of the debate, House Democrats decided to go to the Rules Committee, to report out a Structured Rule and shut the House GOP out of the process.
This is an unprecedented abuse of power by the House Democrats. Every American - every American of either political party or of no party at all - ought to be deeply concerned over this action.
In the words of RedState:
This is the first time in American history the majority has denied the minority the right to offer up amendments to spending bills. The first time. Ever.Fire up those tea parties. The Democrat party is out of control.
