When Republicans wonder why some of the flock bolt for the Libertarian Party, they need look no further when Congress behaves like feudal lords.
The Republican controlled committees may be using a new "martial law" rule to ram through legislation, with no time for representatives to consider, before the vote.
If the incumbent Republicans were honorable they would vote to reject ANY legislation submitted for consideration under "martial law" procedures.
Sadly, I have little confidence that the incumbent R's will act with honor.
Write your representatives today, to reject ANY legislation submitted under "martial law" rules. We don't need Congress to behave like feudal lords.
The one day rule is bad enough, now they want zero-time for consideration. The only way to defeat such a bad rule is to ALWAYS vote to reject legislation submitted under that rule.
