|Democrats are going to absurd lengths to deprive Republicans of our motion to recommit (MTR) on these two bills. In fact, Democrats plan to offer both H.R. 2456 and H.R. 5543 as amendments to a commemorative coin bill in order to repress debate and commonplace floor procedures.
Democrat leaders have taken pains to prevent their members from being on the record on issues like defeating terrorism and supporting our Israeli allies.
In fact, Democrats are congratulating one another for depriving us of our minority rights. Rep. Ro Khanna told reporters, “Majority Leader [Steny] Hoyer has done an excellent job in figuring out a procedure for how we can get a vote on the floor on these bills without an MTR that is nongermane and could divide the caucus.”
Last year, Speaker Pelosi testified before the Select Committee on the Modernization of Congress that, when it comes to protecting the MTR, she is a "big respecter of the rights of the minority in the Congress."
Speaker Pelosi is being hypocritical. She talks big about respecting the rights of the minority in Congress, but when it comes to backing her words up, she instead approves a scheme to bypass regular committee proceedings and strip Republicans of the motion to recommit.
