Pelosi Changing the Rules

I missed something when I first saw the Drudge comment about Pelosi trying to change the rules in congress. It turns out the rule in question which has been in effect since 1822 is designed to PROTECT THE MINORITY party in Congress. I think I am going to scream. Perhaps Nancy should go straight for the "Rule by Decree" tactic of Barbara Walter's pal Hugo Chavez.

report (on the floor tomorrow) is expected to modify current House rules to prevent PAYGO offsets from expanding the scope of germaneness to further what Republicans may offer in their Motions to Recommit (MTR). In English, that means that Speaker Pelosi and the Democrat leadership are proposing a massive change to the current House rules regarding the Republican right to the motion-to-recommit bills to Committees for improvement.,tx05_hensarling_rsc,blog,999,All,Item%20not%20found,ID=070516_0596,TEMPLATE=postingdetail.shtml

The whole thing fits into the Socialist slide toward totalitarianism theme of this and many other conservative blogs and writers.

Update: looks like nancy got out foxed and lost her quest to stop loosing so much.
