During the House Ways and Means Committee hearing on repealing and replacing ObamaCare, Rep. Joe Crowley (D-NY) proposed the same amendment that he had voted against in 2009.
In 2009, Rep. Kevin Brady proposed an amendment would require that members of Congress read the text of the ObamaCare bill before they voted on it.
Crowley and the other Democrats on the House Ways and Means Committee defeated the amendment in a voice vote.
Rep. John Lewis (D-GA) spoke out against Brady’s amendment in 2009 saying, “I think this is a bad idea. You know we’re not children. We’re not little boys and little girls, no one. We shouldn’t have to pass a resolution telling us what we should read and not read.”
Rep. Pat Tiberi (R-OH) called Crowley out on the “rich irony” of his proposed amendment, something that Crowley admitted.
