Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) rants against Deem and Pass

Just because I love irony:

 That video was from 2003, when the Republicans were in charge of the House.  He was complaining about a “rule” colloquially named deem-and-pass.

Now, as majority leader, he seems to feel differently about that particular rule.  This interview comes from early Wednesday (move to 2:20 to hear about deem-and-pass).

 I have words, but none kind to share.  I think I’ll follow my grandmother’s advice, and say nothing at all.
