Moments ago, Rep. Tom Graves was arguing that the amendment to defund the implementation of the national health care would stop the law dead in its tracks.
If it's adopted, Graves said, "government bureaucrats cannot lift so much as a finger, move a paper clip, send an email, if it has anything to do with ObamaCare."
At that point, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz interjected with a parliamentary inquiry, and was eventually recognized once Graves was finished speaking.
"In two previous gentlemen’s statements on the amendment, both of them referred to the Affordable Care Act, which is the accurate title of the health care reform law, as ‘ObamaCare,’" Wasserman Schultz said. "That is a disparaging reference to the President of the United States. It is meant as a disparaging reference to the President of the United States. It is clearly in violation of the House rules."
Her argument did not go anywhere, and Republicans continued their references to ObamaCare.
