House Democrats seethe over proposed fines to deter sit-ins

House Democrats seethe over proposed fines to deter sit-insHouse Democrats are apoplectic over the GOP’s proposed rules changes to prevent them from staging another sit-in on the floor to disrupt proceedings.

The most controversial proposal in the rules package for the new Congress would fine lawmakers who take photos or video on the House floor, which was already prohibited.

Members virtually never faced actual punishment for taking pictures on the House floor in the past, such as during the State of the Union, even though it violated the chamber's rules.

But if lawmakers try to snap photos or stream video starting in 2017, they would face a $500 fine for the first offense and $2,500 for any subsequent offenses. The fines would be deducted from the members’ annual salaries. 

The proposal would not be retroactive, meaning Democrats who participated in the House floor sit-in this past June to call for action on gun control legislation won’t be punished. But lawmakers would face consequences if they try to do something similar in the future.

they should be sucking their thumbs

they will be a lot of salary deductions in 2017

HA HA HA

Ryan should have all of them arrested when it happened...

I wondered why the "Sargent at Arms" was not instructed to remove them? They should be censured and NOT recognized for this childish behavior. The states should do a recall election and they should have been removed from office. They are obviously not worried about what "We the People" want when they were elected!

I'm betting Trump will take action on a democrat ploy like that, way before congress would even have the sargent at arms remove the offenders.

a new day is dawning and i am loving it

These crybabies are clearly insane.

Gee, you mean like enforcing Law & Order, calling Jeff Sessions please. Jackasses must appear in Groups.

The best most effective fine would be a noose for 2nd offense if it's a democrat in violation, that or a slug.

CHILDISH ADULTS!

Just like Obama and all his Exec. orders the next 22 days.

OBAMA'S LEGACY WILL BE GONE IN LESS THEN A YEAR.

OBAMA WILL ONLY BE KNOWN AS THE FIRST BLACK PRESIDENT AND A PROLIFIC LIAR!

NOTHING MORE!

These liberal lawmakers are so disgusting! And we wonder at the millenials?

The democrats have always been idiot trouble makers. John Kerry is an (dumb) ass. What a fool. The fact that the democrats hope for him to be the president says everything. What an idiot.

ALERT ALERT

TRUMP ->  WHY DOES ANTIFA NEVER ATTACK BIKERS FOR TRUMP?

President insults leftists during social media summit

The president made reference to the Antifa attack on gay Asian journalist Andy Ngo in Portland last month.

“Do you ever notice they pick on certain people?” asked Trump.

"Did you ever notice they don't come after Bikers For  Trump?"@realDonaldTrump calls out ANTIFA for the wussies that they are.

“He would tell you he’s not the toughest person physically in the world – they don’t go after Bikers For Trump, you ever notice that, they don’t go after our construction workers who love us, they don’t go after the police,” he added.

Trump went on to further insult far-leftists, joking, “They live in the basement of their mom’s home,” while asserting that they all had skinny arms.

“But they have the black masks on and they have sticks, they hit people in the face, in the head.”

“But you ever notice Antifa’s never there when we have a bikers rally….they’re never around, they’re always there when you have a single guy protesting in front of a school,” said Trump.

Trump then made reference to his administration’s move to withdraw federal funding from educational institutions that don’t allow free speech on campus.
