... is acting like the British House of Commons. From Jonathan Weisman and Elizabeth Williamson:
GOP lawmakers had marched out of the House chamber about 11 p.m. Thursday, shouting "shame, shame" and saying that Democrats had "stolen" a vote on a parliamentary motion to pull an agriculture spending bill off the floor until it incorporated an explicit denial of federal benefits to illegal immigrants.
While Rome burns, they play their fiddle.
