Morning Roundup: House Republicans Shut Down Regular Order

Yesterday, Speaker Ryan and House Republicans decided to abandon their promise of regular order because they’re worried about having to show the American people where they really stand on critical issues. Despite promising an open appropriations process, Republican leadership is tightening their grip after their Members took down their own Energy and Water appropriations bill because it banned discrimination.

Bottom line: House Republicans are changing rules so they can discriminate. And Speaker Ryan’s decision to do so isn’t playing well with his own Members:

Morning Roundup: Republican National Security Agenda is More of the Same

Speaker Paul Ryan and House Republicans are going to unveil their “new” national security plan today, the second plank of their #WrongWay agenda. We don’t think it will come as a shock to anyone that the Republican plan is more of the same policies they’ve put forward before and lacks any actual details.

Afternoon Roundup: House GOP Derails Bill Because it Protects LGBT Americans from Discrimination

Today, House Republicans failed to pass their Energy and Water appropriations bill because an amendment protecting LGBT Americans from discrimination was included in the bill. Rep. Sessions said on the Floor last Thursday that Republicans “do not discriminate.” We think it’s safe to say that’s inaccurate:
