  •  Discharge petition ??? (0+ / 0-)

    Last year Pelosi tried a discharge petition on another issue. It went nowhere, mostly because we, the progressives outside the beltway, didn't push the Republicans to sign it.

    This year, it would take fewer Republican signatures. If we could submit enough promises to House Democrats to push for this, they might try it again.

    I'd love to see Boehner try that "majority of the majority" shit and get run around by this manoeuvre.
