Republican Representative Rebellion


Looks like the House Republicans are fed up and aren't going to take it anymore.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and the Democrats adjourned the House and turned off the lights and killed the microphones, but Republicans are still on the floor talking gas prices.


Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) and other GOP leaders opposed the motion to adjourn the House, arguing that Pelosi's refusal to schedule a vote allowing offshore drilling is hurting the American economy. They have refused to leave the floor after the adjournment motion passed at 11:23 a.m. and are busy bashing Pelosi and her fellow Democrats for leaving town for the August recess.
Here's an incomplete list of the GOP Representatives who are taking a stand on Capitol Hill.
Blunt    Price    Boehner     Dent    Conaway    Shimkus
Sali    Hunter    Poe    Shadegg    Pence    Hoekstra
Culberson    Wahlberg    Westmoreland    Burgess
Capito    McCotter    Carter    Putnam    Foxx    Fortenberry
Interesting sighting- Rep. Kucinich was there for a while. Good for him.

I'm happy to see Congressman Carter (here's a video clip of him, made by Congressman Culberson), and I'm sad that Congressman Michael McCaul (my Republican Congresscritter) isn't listed. Oh, yeah, I'm going to contact his office.

Here are other blogs that are updating regularly on this. That's where I'm getting my information.
