"The gentleman from California has been talking about moving the process forward. It does not move the process forward to pass a bill that's dead before arrival in the Senate. It doesn't move the process forward to pass a bill that is even more partisan than the one yesterday.
"You know, the country has to be wondering, we're one day closer to default and indeed one step backwards. The Republicans are trying to squeeze out a majority here, and what they're doing is inserting a provision that requires a two-thirds vote in the Senate and the House. That's completely a nonstarter.
The American public is looking for a solution, not a stalemate, and the House Republicans have become the party of gridlock. Passing this only increases it. It is a move backwards. Maybe to protect your flank -- but not to protect America."
