“The process is something that we fought extremely hard for in January to restore regular order in the U.S. Congress because everyone recognizes that this place is broke, and that this system is broken. And the reason that it is broken is because process has been ignored and thrown out the window.

"We have seen the consolidation of the power of the decisions that are being made here in this city placed into the hands of a very few, and that is not the way that it is supposed to work. That is why we fought to get 72 hours' notice for any legislation, that is why we fought to make sure that we had single-subject legislation instead of these monstrous bills that contain so many titles and subjects and issues that people don't have the ability to separate out and let each one be considered on its own merits, and that is why we fought to have an open rule system so that we could have discussion debate collaboration and amendments not only in committee but on the House floor. All of that has been thrown out the window.

"You've got the leadership and the White House making decisions about how the entire country is supposed to be run, which leaves the majority of members outside of the discussion, and that's not what the American people asked for, and that's not what the American people elected.

"If you have a bad process, then you're going to end up with a bad product, and folks, what you see on display today is exhibit A. That's what it is. It's a very bad product."
