Worst Racism Since Gov Wallace" 1963 Segregation Forever Speech: House Changing Rules to Keep Government Shutdown

According to TPM DC Late on the night of Sept. 30, with the federal government just hours away from shutting down, House Republicans quietly made a small change to the House rules that blocked a potential avenue for ending the shutdown. With less than two hours to midnight and shutdown, Speaker John Boehner's latest plan emerged. House Republicans would "insist" on their latest spending bill, including the anti-Obamacare provision, and request a conference with the Senate to resolve the two chambers' differences.

Under normal House rules, according to House Democrats, once that bill had been rejected again by the Senate, then any member of the House could have made a motion to vote on the Senate's bill. Such a motion would have been what is called "privileged" and entitled to a vote of the full House. At that point, Democrats say, they could have joined with moderate Republicans in approving the motion and then in passing the clean Senate bill, averting a shutdown. But previously, House Republicans had made a small but hugely consequential move to block them from doing it.

President Obama presidency and this nation democracy is at stake and survival is at state. The fact that a branch of government would go to the extreme measure to shutdown government, make a rule that would keep it close unless one man Eric Cantor and then state continuously that Reid and/or President Obama is responsible for the shutdown, make unjust demands in return for letting Republican Eric Cantor bring a vote to the floor to re-open government should be exposed during a PRIME TIME ADDRESS TO THE NATION. The address should include the video of House Chair acknowledging the September rule change and footage of the Republican leadership public remarks denouncing the shutdown and blaming Reid and Obama for the government not opening. Boehner deceive nation when he say he didn't have the votes to bring motion to floor to re-open government when based on the GOP rule change he doesn't have the authority to bring the vote to the floor.
