The People’s House

Republicans hold the House floor and speak about Democrats leaving town without voting on energy prices

one of the majors are reporting this. Republicans have taken over the House floor and have filled the galleries and floor with staff and visitors all chanting and cheering for more American-made energy. Over 20 members of Congress have returned to the Floor after the chamber’s proceedings concluded to protest Democrat energy policies. Democrats left town for a five week vacation without voting on a comprehensive energy plan. Hundreds of people fill the galleries and Floor. Rousing speech after rousing speech is being delivered by Republican members of Congress. It is a site to behold. Nothing like this has occurred in the history of the Capitol, where one political party has held forth after adjournment to address the people of the US from the People’s House.
