      Thank you so much Nerdy – with politicians like @repjohnlewis the truth does get out despite the absolute shame of Paul Ryan – he will go out with a wimper.

      He was really great. He isn’t in my district but I get his emails for donations and I will start donating to him and others. I will have to think about Keith Ellison tho. Mother had to tell him to get on the floor for the action. He was a Bernie Supporter and has not gone over to Hillary yet. We will se what happens.
      Thank you Nerdy and LP for this magnificent coverage. I have been watching on C-Span. They are awesome.

        Yeah, I have a love/hate relationship with Keith… I’m going to give him the benefit of the doubt; he was in a meeting and members have been cycling in and out…

      I heard that. I was over at the Camden County Democratic Committee Headquarters. They were having a Phone Bank to call the Republicans in Congress to tell them to vote for common sense gun protection, and they had the TV on. I was told I should call NJ and PA legislators first. I added NY, then I just went down the list until I had to leave. I was only there for about an hour and a half. I didn’t find out about this until about 6PM, because I was out most of the day and I had an email from my congressman.

      Sanders and Trump can do the Sarah Palin 5 more minutes of fame when President Clinton takes office. No doubt Bern & wife will write some books, become Fox News contributors and generally hate on the President

        Sounds like she had her wits about her to do that.

        • June 22, 2016 at 8:08 pm

          She had the GALL to ask for the money back after an historic massacre? That’s what came to mind in the middle of this horrific tragedy? I just can’t fathom the attitude.

          • 32 jacquelineoboomer
            June 22, 2016 at 8:10 pm

            He probably left her a note: “What to do if I don’t come back” and that was step one. If she truly weren’t in on it, then I think the next step would have been that she was brainwashed to do what he said – “or else.” Who knows.

        I don’t have an issue with her asking for a refund. Clearly she will need it.

    Bottom line: If members do not leave the floor and no compromise is reached, it is largely up to Speaker Paul Ryan to decide whether to use the authority of the House to seek to clear the floor and/or sanction members, or to keep the House in recess and wait out the issue.

    And it seems that the Republicans have started #StopTheStunt to “counter” #NoBillNoBreak.

    Someone should tweets the names and pics of the victims from Sandy Hook, Charleston, Orlando…etc to Ryan and use with that hashtag…

        Bravo for Al Giordano to remember Rev. Jim Lawson, one of the forgotten heroes of the non-violence freedom movement of the 1950s and 1960s. Congressman John Lewis was trained by one of the best practitioners on non-violence!

      • June 22, 2016 at 9:18 pm

        Republicans are absolutely incapable of dealing with people contesting their power. Compromise, listening is not in their DNA. This is going to get either ugly or absurd. There will be resolution of this situation if the republicans find a way to cave AND save face at the same time. With the media helping them saving face of course.

        I’m so so so tired of the childish, irresponsible, closed-mind republican party. I keep hoping that the American people will FINALLY wise up and serve them the most DESERVED smack down EVER in November.

      I am so proud of Rep. Scott Peters! He is a San Diego Congressman representing a neighboring district that was previously dominated by Republicans before he was elected in in 2012.. I am definitely sending him a donation for his re-election.

      • 92 Dudette
        June 23, 2016 at 12:37 am

        Kudos to him and for the people of his district for sending him to Congress! We need a bunch more D’s like him.

        • 93 nathkatun7
          June 23, 2016 at 12:51 am

          Yes we do! He is a courageous man because his district is still about 50/50 Democrat/Republican.

    SEVEN YEARS too late – the media has discovered there IS a difference between democrats & republicans. The sit-in has removed the GOP pretender from the front page. Long may it last.

      Ryan is 100% empty of ideas, legislation and empathy with anyone other than self. He would be the ideal running mate for Trump. That would turn a spectacular loss into a 50 state rout.
