Rep. Matt Salmon (AZ-05) is laying down the gauntlet. In an op-ed published this morning in the Washington Times, Salmon is pledging to vote against House leadership’s rules.
This should be called "The Salmon Rule" from now on. And let’s hope that his conservative colleagues join him in this pledge. In fact, the timing of this op-ed couldn’t have been better. Because in The Hill newspaper over the weekend, leadership is still willing to break the "Hastert Rule" – the idea that the House should only pass bills that have the support of a majority of House Republicans. Excerpt:
House GOP leadership has recently violated the "Hastert rule," named after former Republican Speaker Dennis Hastert (Ill.), which requires bills coming to the floor to have support from the majority of GOP members.
