  •  How does that work, johnny wurster? (0+ / 0-)

    I have been looking for the rules for procedure to change the rules without much success. I am getting the impression that since there are 9 Republicans and only 4 Democratos on the Committee of Rules, they have a majority on the CoR can do just about anything they want, without having to submit proposed changes to the House as a whole. But I can't find anything that definitely states that. Any help?  [I'm asking because I've been in a discussion on facebook about this issue, and I'd love to be able to show that as long as the Republicans own the CoR, they own the shutdown and its consequences.] Thanks.
