"I Object": Tom Price Tries To Shut Down Democratic Congresswomen
On Saturday morning, a group of House Republicans -- led by Rep. Tom Price (R-Georgia) -- attempted to stop the Democratic Women's Caucus from making their arguments about how the health bill would benefit women by screaming over them.

Rep. Lois Capps (D-Calif.) only had time to say "Mr. Speaker, I ask unanimous consent to--," before Price shouted "I object." The presiding chair, Rep. John Dingell (D-Mich.) made gestures to maintain control, declaring that "the request is not yet before the House" and that Price was "out of order," to little effect. Capps attempted to go on, but Price continued shouting "I object! I object! I object!"

The same shouting tactics were used on Rep. Mary Jo Kilroy (D-Ohio), who asked angrily, "Do I not have the right to be able to continue my sentence without objections that are trying to censor my remarks here on the floor that I have a right to make as a member of this House?"

1. Gee if I was a democratic representative
every time a republican took the floor I would pop up with YOU LIE. At least democrats would be telling the truth. Because every time a republican opens their mouth THEY LIE.

3. But Democrats don't, do they?
All Democrats, whatever you may think of some of them, at least respect the parliamentary process.

These clowns have NO such respect.

2. And the fact that what they were basically doing...
.... was trying to prevent women from speaking was very ironic wasn't it?

Oh and Marsha Blackburn's hair bump was out of control. Seriously, if you will allow me to be petty but she looked like she had a straight up Tennessee raccoon layin' on her head.
