Debate Has Started

     This wasn't clear to me.  It looks like the Republicans are using their power to bring forward a rule on the calendar, and then they plan to amend the rule, after the current debate, to include their resolution about Iraq.  This motion is being brought up in response to Representative Murtha's previous comments.

     This is despite the fact that the underlying motion, HR 563, was only introduced today.  They are planning to have a debate on the rule, which they have already their intent to amend, which was introduced today.

     I wish the House Parliamentarian had a blog!  Why is it being attached as an amendment to a rules amendment that discusses flood relief, the war on terrorism, budget reconciliation, and one other matter.  Yes!  No less issues than those are being connected to this rules motion.
