  •  I think you are mistaken about the house quorum (1+ / 0-)

    The quorum is achieved when one or more representatives from two thirds of the states are present.  In this case, Alaska with its one rep is just as powerful as California or Texas.  This makes sense in historical terms when representatives got to Washington on Horseback, in a carriage or by a ship.   As long as someone was present from 2/3 of the states they could conduct this business.  

    And denying a quorum would be meaningless because sooner or later they would be forced to take that vote.
