In the Democrat controlled House of Representatives Republicans have been essentially reduced to the status of children. They may as well be told that they are to be seen and not heard.
This happens every time Democrats control any part of our government. They have no interest in true bipartisan government, only in power and control. Remember Barack Obama’s statement: “Elections have consequences“, he told then number two Republican Rep. Eric Cantor. “And at the end of the day, I won. So I think on that one I trump you.” Translation: “I’m the one in power now, so you get to shut up.”
