Democrats adopting rule to limit Freedom Caucus delay tactics

House Democrats are planning to adopt a new rule on Tuesday that will prevent members of the House Freedom Caucus from demanding individual roll call votes on dozens of noncontroversial bills and consuming hours of floor time.

Lawmakers have grown frustrated in recent weeks as Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (Ga.) and several members of the Freedom Caucus have insisted upon roll call votes on bills that normally pass by voice vote.

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) said Tuesday that Democrats plan to adopt a rule that will allow consideration of the bills en bloc, meaning that one vote would serve as passage of multiple measures at once.

"There's overwhelming agreement among both the Republicans and the Democrats that these bills are in the best interests of our country, and therefore are non controversial, that they can be considered as they have been historically in a fashion which will not take the kind of time that we've been taking over the last two weeks," Hoyer told reporters.

4. In any profession or job you get the easy stuff out of the way fast - EASY-PEASEY, you know?

Which permits concentration on more complex tasks.

Traitor-Gangrene is going in the opposite direction. I get it, she wants everything to stop. She's Mitch in spiked heels.

But even Mitch knew you have to allow the non-controversial things slide through.

5. These are votes that usually pass 419-3 or the like

Forcing votes on these is nothing more than a waste of time. Keeping already tired cops and staff on their feet for no reason.
The cost of this foolishness is enormous as the overtime cost for the cops alone is a lot of money!
