In the dark of night on 30 September, the United States House of Representatives Rules Committee changed a standing House rule so that no one but John Boehner or his designee could bring up a bill or an amendment to a bill to re-open the federal government.

Watch Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D- Maryland) confront the Speaker's stand-in.




Appalling. The suspension of democracy in the United States House of Representatives.
