Republicans aims to regain control of House floor from Democratic sit-in – CNN

The Optics of it all. This is pure genius on the part of the Democrats who started the sit-in. And what’s most ironic is that they’re holding the house hostage that wants to vote on a bill that will remove fiduciary responsibility from people that handle your money. The only people in the world that want this bill to go through are the banks. To make it simple this law was passed under President Obama’s administration and it says that if you handle someone’s money you must handle it responsibly. The banks hate this because acting responsibly is not in their nature. So now the eyes of the nation are looking at a cell phone transmission from the floor of the house and in half an hour speaker Ryan will call the house to order to vote on a bill that only the banks want. This is going to set them up for 30 second commercials over and over again between now and November. This is a nightmare for Paul Ryan. And nobody deserves nightmares more than Paul Ryan.
This is why the Republicans no longer call the Democratic Party by its name and only say the Democrat Party. Because this is democracy at work at its finest.

John Lewis leads sit-in on House floor over guns – CNNPolitics.com

Could Democrats in the Congress finally be getting a backbone? Honestly, I have been waiting for this kind of action for way too long. This is unprecedented and quite creative on their part. Since the house is not in session there is no video or audio but house members are streaming live using their cell phones. This is it illegal but they are most likely to get away with it. They are fed up with the inaction over gun safety and our country and are mad and are not going to take it anymore. Republicans, and the words of President Obama, enough is enough. We need gun safety in this country.
