That isn't remotely close to what I said. What I did say is that I understand how our government functions.
The House of Representatives is majority rule. The party in power gets to set the rules, run the committees, and vote on anything they so choose. The minority party is just that - the minority. They don't get to set the agenda, filibuster legislation, issue subpoenas, or call hearings.
I know it's hard for you to accept it, but you have a lot to thank Representative Pelosi for. She is the leader who helped pass the Dodd-Frank Financial Reform Bill, Obamacare, the GM bailout that prevented it from going bankrupt, and countless other bills after President Obama was elected. The country would be a very different place right now if not for her leadership.
Anger politics is a cancer that metastasizes until it is unstoppable. I understand that you're angry and want someone to blame, but throwing everyone but the kitchen sink out isn't going to make that anger go away. In fact, it will likely make it much worse because then there will be a leadership vacuum at exactly the wrong time.
