Conservatives Angered by 'Bullshit' Vote

"Angry House conservatives denounced the Republican leadership for abruptly ramming through a fix to Medicare doctor payments on Thursday without a full roll call vote," The Hill reports.

"House Republican leaders had planned to bring up the 'doc fix' under a procedure requiring a two-thirds majority to pass, but after a series of closed-door meetings on Thursday morning, they determined they didn't have the votes... So with just a few members on the House floor... Republicans brought up the Medicare bill by voice vote. When no one in the chamber objected, the measure passed."

Said Rep. Mick Mulvaney (R-SC): "Bullshit."
