Majority Rule

House Democrats have apologized for stealing a vote away from Republicans. "Never once did we in the majority attempt to steal a vote," said Eric Cantor, R-VA, on Friday.

This is the party of the double standard, of the "Two Americas," of mob rule.

Republicans, in the minority, have to make do by using parliamentary procedure to their advantage. They did so in this vote, and the Socialist Democrat majority, unable to win with their superior numbers, closed the vote early. And then some Democrats were permitted to change their votes after the gavel struck. What the hell?

Shame, shame indeed.
