FACT: Barbara Boxer Opposes Democracy
Ruling it a procedural matter, Barbara Boxer (photo at right) overturned the majority of her committee to adjourn early. The result: no debate or votes on Republican bills. This is a travesty, an abuse and a desperate tactic by a party precariously close to losing its Congressional majority. Spectators await what whip Richard Burr characterizes as an "immediate and forceful" Republican procedural response. One wonders whether the "Democrats" understand what a committed Republican Conference can do. I predict it won't take long before Boxer regrets this fascist gamble.
