Contempt of Congress

Zogby and others show the polls. It is things like this which reinforce the public's perception if they read & are awake!  Maybe the video explains it.
Maybe we should pray for gridlock instead!

Reminds me of the Renton hearing about the Black river development.  The developer mounted a giant poster blocking off the audience.  It was very rude and insensitive to the citizens in the room.  There was an uproar.  But later they rearranged the poster behind the commissioner's table. 

These uproars happen frequently in parliamentary situations and inevitably are unavoidable.  Imho, they do not necessarily represent a waste of money.  Rather they are a symptom of polarities that besiege our political processes.

Uproars yes, cheating on a vote -NO!

What stuck in my mind was that they fixed the error.  Things go wrong, there is an uproar, they get fixed.  Now if it didn't get fixed and the opposing politicians just accepted the error, that would give me pause to consider. 

I think the underlying issue here is perverse partisan polarity in Washington.  This creates a environment in which the best solutions do not emerge.  How can we fix that?

It looked more like a Democrat fix to me!

Yep, the Democrats fixed the voting error .
The democrats didn't win that was the only voting error. So make it disappear and try again. That's the real waste of time.
Sorry, all i hear in your complaints is "perverse partisan polarity".  Rubbing alcohol does not make it taste any better.
