I think we should start garnishment proceedings against each of the participants of this little charade until we are reimbursed the $1,071,872.87

They should be GARNISHED in PAY for EACH DAY they DO NOT WORK.

I WANT A 40-HOUR WEEK and two weeks vacation AFTER TWO YEARS - no sick time - they get the best healthcare in America and should NEVER MISS WORK.

They are excellent at grandstanding. Too bad they don't have any intent to govern.

Yes baggers this was all done for you at a cost of over 1 million dollars, happy now? So very fiscally responsible! What a joke!

To put this in perspective, the organ transplant program in Arizona was scrapped over it's cost of $1.4 million per year. So far, three people have died as a result of that decision by Jan Brewer.

'The House GOP will reportedly make it a requirement that all new bills put forth in the legislative body include "a statement by the lawmaker who wrote it citing the constitutional authority to enact the proposed legislation."'

By that logic there would never be a constitutional amendment and
the republicans are beating the balanced budget amendment drum again like it's 1994.
By that logic the anti-flag buring amendment can not be proposed as well as the english as the offical language amendment can not be proposed.

I'd like to say it's comical, butit isn't it's just sad and pathetic

Also, there is certainly a cost to holding the reading on the floor of congress,
but I think the figure they're citing is on the high side.

I hate to side with the House GOP, but they'd just have to quote Article V, which outlines the amendment process.

The Republicans supposedly think "tax cuts" will rebuild a world economy wrecked by their deregulated fraud. How laughable. We've had a decade of nothing but tax cuts, and THIS is where we are.

What the Republicans really mean, of course, is that they would prefer to do nothing but protect the rich as millions of Americans lose their jobs, their health care, the roofs over their heads, even the food on their plates. 
None of them will say it, but that's what they mean. The actions of the congressional Republicans are making that quite clear right now. 

The complete destruction of the American middle class isn't a problem for the Republicans. It's a plus.

No way, all that reading got to him. He stayed late with a few Teabaggers to read the bible.

Too funny.

At least now we know what they are going to do for the rest of the year: Reading the manual.

Congress will damage the nation less if it spends the rest of the year just reading "The Federalist Papers" out loud -- and if the text runs out before the year does they can switch to "The Alexandria Quartet" or "War and Peace."

They are all over-priced anyway. Passing their absurd laws is what really costs our economy.
